Meow The Jewels is a project that brought so many people’s crazy dreams to life, including one involving mega producer Just Blaze. He not only promised to contribute a song to Run The Jewels’ cat remix album if it was funded, he promised to release a downloadable drum kit that stretches across four years.
And today, he was as good as his word. You can now download Blaze’s drum kit off of Daylight Curfew right now and get your early 2000s on! Check out Blaze’s statement below:
“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!!”
