Run The Jewels' Meow The Jewels project continues to throw up gems. Following the release of the cat-heavy remix album of last year's Run The Jewels 2 album, producer Just Blaze has made good on his promise of not only contributing to the project but also releasing a collection of drum samples used during 2001 to 2005; a pinnacle period where he worked with the likes of Jay Z, Kanye West, Cam'ron and the Diplomats, Fabolous and many more. The collection is appropriately titled Meow The Drums and it's available as a free download.

In a statement, Just Blaze said: "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!!"
