The journey continues! This time around I was travelling through the land of the Big 5: South Africa. I’m back with the 2nd instalment of the popular “Producers On The Run” drum kit series: “Vol. 2: The Safari Drum Kit”. Travelling across the country the goal was to capture at least a little piece of South Africa’s rich culture & nature. With this mindset I was facing plenty of opportunities to record & modulate new aspiring sounds. “Vol. 2: The Safari Drum Kit” features recordings of various percussionists, animal sounds (Elephants, Baboons, Gnus, etc.) & traditional rituals. If you’re looking for a bundle of crazy animal FX, wild percussion sounds, vocal chants & hard hitting drums/808’s, this drum kit is made for you!

Arriving in South Africa the journey started at Kruger National Park east of Johannesburg. At the very beginning of my trip I was getting invited to a small village in the middle of the south african bush. There I had the chance to be a part of a traditional ritual which I luckily recorded. I was amazed by the authentic sounding percussion drums, singing and chanting of the tribe. In the following days I joined several trips & game drives through Kruger Park to record all types of noises from different animals. All samples have been recorded with the Zoom h4n mobile recorder using its build-in microphones and have been processed with industry standard mixing techniques. The result is a high quality drum kit for producers with high expectations.
