The AI Drum Kit,
by Twenty9 and SonyCSL - Paris

Twenty9 is a platinum producer who has worked with artists such as SCH, Dinos, Maes, Lacrim, Angèle, Rilès, Yseult, Swing, Tsew The Kid, among others. At the beginning of 2020, he started collaborating with the music team in Sony Computer Science Laboratories – Paris.


As a hip-hop beatmaker, he’s used to digging into countless kits, scrolling into endless drum sample lists, so as to get a distinctive sound. This habit came in handy when he started using Sony CSL – Paris drum-generating plugins in order to create drum samples both ahead of their time and to the point. These top-notch drums make the most of a futuristic essence modeled by a timeless process.
