One of the most prestigious producers from the late 90’s and the early 2000’s, Just Blaze, has just officially released drum kits that were used between the years of 2001 and 2005.
After promising to remix Run the Jewels’, “Meow the Jewels“, he also promised that he’d release these samples as long as the project was funded.
These samples include features from artists such as Kanye West, Jay-Z and Cam’ron.
Here’s what Blaze had to say regarding the EP :
Thanks to all who contributed to making Meow The Jewels a success. For the uninitiated, I promised to contribute a remix to the project if it was funded, and as an added bonus a good amount of the signature drums I used on many records in the early half of the 2000’s. Please note these are the raw, relatively unprocessed files straight out of my MPC (hence the delay in tracking them down and getting them to you guys). That said, in most cases, you’re not going to instantly press a pad and be like ‘OMG, IT’S THE SUCH AND SUCH SNARE!’ (though that will happen in a few cases). I used a lot of layering, compression, and EQ / Mix techniques to get these things to sound like the drums many of you knew and loved. Enjoy this starting point, and happy drumming! P.S. This is just the beginning. Stay tuned to Splice.com for much more!!
