DJ Pain1 “Damn That Hurt Drums” Review
Imagine you’re a veteran producer/ drum kit designer browsing some beats on SoundCloud late one night for some inspiration. While searching, you come across a super-catchy beat, filled with a set of drums that instantly make your head nod. Once you listen to the entire song, you reach out to the producer and find out he/she only paid 13 dollars for all of the drums! Knowing the current price of drum kits, and how they sound, you can’t help but say to yourself, “Damn that hurts”.
What up world! D-nast here, with my thoughts and feelings on a hot new drum kit from the elite DJ Pain 1, titled “Damn That Hurt Drums”. DJ Pain 1, for those who don’t know, has produced for heavy hitters such as 50 Cent and Young Jeezy, and is also known for his “Unfinished Friday” sample giveaways weekly through his facebook page (www.facebook.com/djpainone). When it comes to drums, Pain 1 is always known for hard-hitting drums that instantly grab the listeners’ attention. “Damn That Hurts Drums” is a collection of over 70 original drum sounds, for less than the low price of 13 dollars- that’s right people! Seventy plus samples for less than most spend on lunch each day! But enough about the price, let’s see what DJ Pain 1 has blessed us with this time.
Once I started exploring “Damn That Hurts Drums”, I came to the conclusion that there isn’t a more appropriate title for this kit! Every single sound included in this kit sounds new and original, and with such a low price tag, this is going to leave a lot of kit designers’ feelings “hurt”. One particular section that really stood out to me was the selection of drum loops. This group of loops includes three different filtered drum loops, which provide the perfect build for an intro; these were lots of fun to chop up and will be getting some very heavy usage from anyone who purchases them.
Another portion of this kit, that, in my opinion, exceeds the total value of the kit, would be the selection of snares, claps and snaps. This incredible selection of 25 snares not only sounds insanely good, but are also the same sounds featured in productions by DJ Pain 1 himself! When laid out on a beat, these samples are equivalent to a fast jab thrown in the final round of a boxing match for the comeback that claims you the victor; DING, DING, DING “Damn That Hurt”!
To wrap things up, this kit is a definite must-have for any producer. With everybody and their family producing drum kits left and right nowadays, not only does “Damn That Hurts Drums” provide you with a multitude of samples for a low price, they all sound unique too! For less than $13, this drum kit is of great value to anyone who purchases and should definitely not be slept on. It will be one of the best decisions you have made all year!
