MALL MUSIC INC. core member DJ Orange Julius today shared a rabbit hole of a new track in collaboration with his labelmate DJ Mastercard. "Finally Together" is off the Florida producer's forthcoming debut album, The Grove, and it sees the duo of footwork experimenters forge an uneasy pairing of lush ambiance and harsh freneticism.

The song's first half has a hazy, new age tone, built around a plaintive smooth jazz sample and a serene vocal snippet. This feeling is intensified as rolling jungle drums get added to the mix, but it's quickly derailed when disjointed footwork percussion takes over in the stormy second section—it all feels like a pleasant trip gone bad.

The Grove will be released on June 16, and is available for pre-order on Bandcamp. DJ Orange Julius and DJ Paypal will go on tour together in June.
