Smoke II is the second instalment of the highly popular drum series Smoke (duh). This time around, we created four new drum categories to make this one more modern and versatile: boom bap, trap, EDM and trailer.
Look... I'm a 90's cat. Back then, if your drums weren't on some other level, you didn't really stand a chance. At least, that's how I felt about the game. Obviously, Dr. Dre has always been the King of the mountain when it came to huge drums. Not only in the mixing department but in the layering techniques he used as well. The Smoke series is an ode to my idol, my way of paying tribute to the master.
Smoke I was all about the famed Dr. Dre and DJ Khalil drum sounds made popular in songs such as "Lost Ones" by Jay-Z or "Imagine" by Snoop Dogg. For Smoke II, we had to reinvent an incredibly popular formula, which was no easy task. Our first move was to give you even more of the same goodness. So yes, you do get even more boom bap ready drums. But we also wanted the library to stand the test of time so we introduced heavy trap and EDM layered drums. Finally, you get my favourite of the four categories, the trailer drums. This sound design-ish collection of drums is like nothing out there. The biggest, grittiest and meanest single hits drums out there. Period.
Give them a try. At less than $20, this is a steal (John Stockton style).
