DJ Ends stops by alongside the Good Street imprint for a solid seven track project entitled 'PTS'. Overall this project takes an interesting look at the rapidly developing juke movement, but with a much more melodically pleasing approach than your average producer. Through well crafted synthesisers and crispy drum patterns, DJ Ends lays down an overall super solid body of work. Without a doubt our highlights of the EP are the spaced out 'L2' which takes you on a synthesised musical journey, and the fantastically unpredictable 'Hope Is Where The Arp Is' which focuses on rolling filtration and catchy breakbeat patterns.
DJ Ends' first two EPs have been the key to his arrival on Modern Ruin, a label which, in our minds, is making some of the very best footwork experiments around and who have clearly seen the value in the DJ Ends output. There're 8 tunes on here, making this closer to a mini-LP, all of them geared towards the dancefloor and often mashing up diverse pop styles to fit within the neo-juke aesthetic. There's plenty of r&b at the core of this EP, particularly on "Shame", where vintage soul vocals are infused with glitchy, high-powered beats - an element which is blended into pretty much all of these tunes. Wicked style.
