A producer with the resume of Ski Beatz needs very little introduction. The man’s produced classic records from Jay-Z‘s “Dead Presidents” and “Feelin’ It” off Reasonable Doubt, to Camp Lo‘s “Uptown Saturday Night.” Fast forward two decades later and Ski remains one of the most prolific and sought after beatsmiths in the genre, whose gone onto craft beats for the likes of AZ, Mos Def, Jay Electronica, Prodigy, Joell Ortiz, Curren$y, Talib Kweli, Jean Grae, Murs, and many more. That said, our producer following out there in internet land may be elated to know that he’s offering his own hand picked drum samples from his personal stash, for mass consumption, with his digital drum kit titled, The Karate School Kit: Drums For Ninjas. So.. in promotion for the kit which dropped earlier this week, the good people at HipHopDrumSamples.com have linked with yours truly for a rather dope contest that should come as a welcomed treat for both producers, collectors and savvy tech-heads alike. So starting today through Monday, we’ll be picking one lucky winner per day to receive a custom 16GB flash drive in the shape of the classic MPC2000XL, loaded with Ski’s Karate School Kit -AND- !llmind’s Blap Kit Vol. 3.. check out the details below.


To honor Ski’s chopping skills on the E-Mu SP-1200, we spent hours re-sampling the kit through our E-Mu SP-1200 to create a 12-Bit (Dirty) version for vintage analog flavor & grit. Forget the vintage mode button, these drums have authentic 12-Bit flavor that your Maschine or MPC Renaissance can’t replicate.


Kit Features:


• Hand picked & designed drums by legendary producer Ski Beatz


• 100 Sounds: 25 Kicks (Clean & 12-Bit), 25 Snares (Clean & 12-Bit), 25 Hi-Hats (Clean & 12-Bit) • 25 Live Percussions (Clean)


• E-Mu SP-1200 Vintage/Analog Flavor

Greg Grease – “Forward”



If you’ve managed to get this far during the week, you probably deserve a break. And what good timing to introduce Greg Grease‘s latest video for “Forward”, a stripped down, less-is-more banger that doesn’t need to be overdramatic to get it’s point across. Directed by Adam Dunn as a part of his #LABB (Lights and a Backdrop) series, the visuals are as minimalistic as it gets, allowing the Grease, his DJ and his turntable to play centre stage. Check it out and be sure to pick up Greg Grease’s Black King Cole EP if you don’t already own it.
