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.
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.
