In January 2017 we released The Class Of 808, the culmination of many artists hard work with ill.Gates in his production classes, since then the project has grown into the Producer Dojo and a network of artists who are all producing cutting edge tunes.
The Class of 808 Vol.2 showcases some of the choice picks from the Dojo and also puts on display the versatility and unique talents in the Producer Dojo. ill.Gates & Mitch Brady give us a beautiful kickoff to the release with a gentle groover that radiates good vibes, Seancy then launches into a bouncy Reggae influenced skank that is reminiscent of Dub FX style tunes, Trigem then takes it into heavier territory with a heavy banger that is followed by an even heavier halftime tune by emerging stars Vaedynn & Matter and then its all rounded off with some really energetic vibes with a bouncy, bass driven broken beat and house music fusion tune by Veinz.
