Enter Apollo Brown:
The contemporary producer legend known for his gritty drums and meticulous sample flips, Apollo Brown has produced for the likes of OC, Ras Kass, Joell Ortiz, Ghostface Killah, Skyzoo, Danny Brown, MOP, Roc Marciano, Guilty Simpson, Planet Asia, and Westside Gunn just to name a few
Apollo states, “When I create music, I’m a firm believer in simplicity, especially when it comes to my drums. I’ve never wanted to take away from the feeling of the sample, so I’ve always kept my drum patterns at a minimum, while still remaining effective.
With that said, I love good dirty drum sounds, and I’ve been collecting drums for over 20 years. Although I’ve dug up, chopped, and collected thousands of drums, I’ve always found myself gravitating towards a select couple hundred hits that tend to work for me and my particular sound. I’ve decided to box’em up.
As I share with you this drum kit, I’m also sharing with you the very same drum sounds that I’ve used throughout my career; my personal drum stash that I still use on a day to day basis.
The only difference is, I’ve kept these hits raw and unprocessed in order for you, as a beat maker, to build them up in your own way.
There’s nothing flashy about this kit, there’s no gimmicks or reinvention of the wheel, just straight forward gritty drums for the common blue collar producer.
They’ve worked for me over the years, and hopefully they work for you too.”
