Straight from the Divided Souls Productions sound lab comes a collection of kicks, snares, and percussion that has been simmering in the cauldron, waiting to be released to the world in all of their 12-Bit glory. While many kits boldly claim to have their origin in the E-mu SP-1200, these elements were recorded directly from the vintage analog drum machine with minimal processing. Twelve Bit Soul offers the classic warmth and feeling that many of today’s filters and processors claim to capture, while still falling short of the genuine article.

This latest assortment embodies years of painstaking digging and editing to get the sound just right, with many of these hits being featured in sounds from David Banner, Stat Quo, Public Enemy and more. Within each folder, discover how the worlds of analog and digital can mesh with today’s production. Simply put: hard-hitting, analog drums are timeless, living on as trends come and go. Throughout Twelve Bit Soul, the kicks and snares deliver an essential foundational component, a certain sonic knock that can provide the extra push in your production.

Features 324 total 12-Bit // SP-1200 Sounds including:

  • 39 Hi-Hats & Percussion
  • 150 Kicks & Toms
  • 135 Snares & Claps

J-Zone Lunch Breaks – Video Interview

10 Nov


Redefinition Records sat down with the multi-talented J-Zone at his Queens NY studio for a conversation about his musical roots, why he started playing drums, and the ideas behind his latest project, “Lunch Breaks”
- -

Enter the world of J-Zone, the self-proclaimed jack of all trades / master of none (mc / producer / drummer / author). Truth be told, Zone is one of Hip Hop’s most underrated artists. The Queens NY native earned his stripes as an MC / producer with a string of unique and critically acclaimed albums in the late 90′s-2000′s on Fat Beats Records before taking a hiatus from music. Zone recently made an impact as an author, with his honest and humorous look at his experiences in the music biz in “Root For The Villain.” Since then, J has seemingly recharged his battery and jumped back into the music biz with more enthusiasm than ever, releasing a full-length album called “Peter Pan Syndrome” in 2013, and more recently, the thought provoking anti-hater anthem, “Map Rap” on 7″ vinyl. J has also been DJing popular parties from NY to Chicago including the NY nightlife staple, Mobile Mondays.

Redefinition Records & The Drum Broker are proud to bring you J-Zone’s ‘Lunch Breaks’ on vinyl & cassette formats. What is lunch breaks? It’s a compilation of original and familiar drum breaks performed and recorded by J-Zone. This break record/album is a must have for any drum aficionado, beatmaker, producer, or J-Zone fan. As a writer, producer, MC, and now Drummer, the “Chief Chinchilla” has earned himself a cult following that deserves nothing less than full attention.

These are must have drums, especially for sampling producers, DJs and production enthusiasts. Includes 9 bonus tracks not available on the digital version.
