Illmind’s Blap Kit Vol 5 recently dropped on hiphopdrumsamples.com. The Drum Broker writes, “If all 5 BLAP-KITS were brothers, then this latest release, Volume 5, would be the outcast of the family. The dark horse. The outspoken sibling. “Blap Kit Vol 5” is meant to break all the rules. ”
I had the chance to speak with Illmind at BeatcampLA at SAE Institute recently. I must say that he is one of the most down to earth brothers you could ever wish to meet. He is all about the music. He is passionate about the beats. He is genuinely interested in helping beat makers learn, grow and get paid. This is as evident in his Twitter timeline as it is in his advice to aspiring beat makers while he sits on the panel at BeatCamp.
One thing we all know about Illmind is that he is a complete black out artist on the beats. [TRUTH!] But another thing is apparent… His drum kit game is market leading and “crazy-go-nuts-&-bananas.” So it is always a treat to see another BLAP KIT drop. As such here drops Blap Kit Vol 5.
This kit features more drum rolls, percussion, vocal samples and breaks. Illmind even went vintage on this one with that classic Akai S-20 (the poor man’s MPC from the late 90s – my first drum machine I might add).
- Over 130 NEW drum sounds (kicks, snares, hi-hats, claps, various percussion, weird stuff & drum-rolls) in 16-bit/44 WAV format.
- Compatible with ALL DAW systems (Logic, Reason, Ableton, FL Studio, Protools, etc)
- 6 EXCLUSIVE drum-break loops played by !llmind and created from actual drums, eq’d and processed.
- All drum sounds were sampled into an Ensoniq ASR-10 AND Akai S-20 at 33khz/12-bit for maximum warmth + punch!
- All drum sounds carefully multi-layered & molded by !llmind to create truly, never before heard drums.
- NO saturation/flat “pancake” sounds.
- Carefully mastered just “under-zero”. NO nasty “digital-clipping”.
- All drum sounds were hand-picked, created, and stripped by !llmind himself from his personal drum stash.
- BONUS !llmind custom made digital “sweepers”, never before heard.
- Also includes 5 heavy “sub-bass” tones, to create basslines and/or your own 808 kick drums.
