For more than a decade Alchemist watched “Alchemist Drum Kits” floating around the Internet. Having nothing to do with these joints, Alchemist says “They probably just snipped a few open snares and kicks here and there”.The drums sounded close, but were never officially from The Alchemist.
Enter The Official Alchemist Drum Kit – The Alchemist ‘Secret Sauce’
“Recently my man DJ Skizz and Marco Polo came though the lab and Marco gave me the idea to do an official drum kit and go back to the old beats from the ASR-10 that people might recognize and give them drum patterns and sounds from the classics.”, says Alchemist.
Inspired by this unique approach to creating a drum kit, Alchemist went back to his old ASR-10 disks, solo’ed the drums, recorded 4 bars , then solo’ed each drum sound. “It gives people a chance to find the samples that accompany the drums and remake the classic beats or use them on new beats”, says Alchemist.
Alchemist Secret Sauce features the drums from these classics:
Tick Tock, Different Worlds, Mobb Niggaz, Air It Out, For The Record, Desire, Living The Life, NB, Latin Thug, Of Rhymes, Stuck To You, Crushed Linen, Luce, Worst to Worst, Lose Ya Life, Pointer, Neighborhood Watch, On Stage, Definition, Craze, Essence, Professional, D Elite, Feel Me, Still Feel Me
Plus a bonus folder of sounds from Alchemist personal drum stash & ASR-10 including Kicks, Snares, Hats, & FX.
