"808's & Hard Breakz" is the freshest release in the Sequel One catalogue and it is authored by a German producer DJ ENDS. The EP is made up of 6 tracks carried in the juke/footwork style, although the producer allowed himself to step outside the boundaries of the classic Chicago sound. The classic percussion rhythms of Roland's 808 drum machine are intertwined with chopped amen break samples and sounds straight out of Hip-Hop productions. This base layer gets drizzled with vocals stemming from the vibes of R&B, Hip Hop and Brazilian funk. All this makes the EP an interesting case without any boundaries which was made for the dance floor, as well as for those who love to bust out some experimental electronic music in the safety of their home. Without a doubt, DJ ENDS is the kind of person who sets out trends in music, so this EP can be taken as a new direction in boosting the popularity of the "neo-juke" scene out of it's infancy.
