Time for some more drums
Today I’m checking out a new kit from blazinkits.com, whom I’ve been watching grow for years.
This time I’m taking a look at “Survival Drums” ……
So what is Survival Drums?
Like all the kits from blazin kits, this is a more “urban pop” collection…
mostly done in the style of Timbo, Pharrell, Swizz, etc.
They are big drums, drums that take up a lot of room in the track.
It’s a collection of 15 kicks and 15 snares.

How do they sound?
Like you would expect, they are BIG. These aren’t just punchy drums that cut through the mix, these drums are meant to be the start of the track.
Lot’s of layering and compression going on from what I can hear.
Sometimes the compression or “loudness” can be a bit too much to fit into your track, but again, it depends on what you’re going for.
If you want huge drums, they are definitely here.
Despite the drums being extremely big and loud, surprisingly I didn’t run into any clicks or pops at the end of the drums.
It seems they were edited properly so there are no undesired artifacts going on.
What’s the bottom line?
I like the kit, I’ve been a fan of blazin kits for a while now.
It seems that most of his kits have a similar style, mostly the big, spacious drums.
You can tell he is a fan of folks like timbo, pharrell, darkchild, swizz, bcox, etc…and it shows in the sound design.
I think it’s a good price-point for the number of sounds you get, pretty much gives you a quick fix when you want an instant dose of new sounds without being overwhelmed or breaking the bank.
I give this a 4 out of 5 subs, it’s really a good kit to have in your collection, for the price of the kits over there.
I’d say eventually you should own them all lol. You may find similar sounding drums in other kits but that’s because most are made in the same styles….but it’s a great collection to have.
No matter if you get one or end up with them all, I definitely suggest you checkout blazinkits.com
