“The End of It All,” released in 2006 on Palette Recordings, is one of the most iconic John Tejada songs ever produced. It is instantly recognizable and has been played by top DJs of different genres the world over. Selling thousands of copies on vinyl, it hit #2 on the Beatport overall chart as well as garnering a lengthy stay on it’s classics chart. It’s been imitated, covered (unauthorized), and until now only one official version was ever released. There have been multiple unreleased versions over the past 9 years, including a version Tejada performed at the Walt Disney Concert Hall with a 100-piece male chorus (LAGMC) in the summer of 2010. Why after so many versions did he finally decide to release a new mix? Simply because this one just felt right and seemed to stick. The new 2015 mix originated as part of Tejada’s 2015 live hardware set that he has been touring around the globe. This new mix stands on its own yet avoided receiving a brand new title since its strong emotive theme and connection to the original were undeniable. “Reactivation” and “Sheven” are two additional new works featured on the B side. Originating from his 2015 live set, the two tracks showcase Tejada’s strong sense for the dance floor. “Reactivation” is a Casio CZ-101 and Roland TR-909 locking into a strong bass line driven groove that draws elements from Tejada’s own influences. “Sheven,” named for its use of a Roland SH-7, features a sickly sounding riff with punchy 909 drums.
This new release of The End of It All will continue to ensure the track's legacy as one of John Tejada's most valued classics.
