Just Blaze x Run The Jewels – Meow The Drums (Drum Kit)

Tuesday, November 17th, 2015


As if his groundbreaking, feline themed remix of “Oh My Darling Don’t Cry” wasn’t enough, Just Blaze has teamed up with Killer Mike and El-P to make his collection of early 2000’s drums available for free download. Check out a statement from Just on the kit and continue below to download Meow The Drums.

“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!!”

Killer Mike & El-P – Meow The Jewels: A Short Paw-cumentary

Friday, October 30th, 2015

Meow The Jewels, the cat-sound infused remix project from Run The Jewels, is easily one of the most unique undertakings in the history of Rap music. In a new ‘Paw-cumentary’ from Mass Appeal, the pair talk about the inception of the project as tongue-in-cheek RTJ2 deluxe package, the real world difference it ended up making and what that represents from a social perspective. Here’s a fun fact: This project that essentially started as a joke allowed Mike and El-P to make two donations of $20,000 each to the families of Michael Brown and Eric Garner, and there’s nothing funny about that.
