  • Downloadable Kit Provides Blueprint For More Jay-Z Remixes

    Just a week after one online group protested EMI Music's clampdown on The Grey Album by organizing "Grey Tuesday," another group is providing fans with tools to make their own Jay-Z remix albums.

    The Jay-Z Construction Set was created by a pair of anonymous 23-year-olds to give people the tools to create their own Black Album remixes and to compare them with several other popular ones already circulating on the bootleg circuit. The kit includes Jay-Z's The Black Album a cappella vocals, hundreds of classic music samples and simple audio editing software that will allow users to make their own instrumentals.

    Also included are nine CDs' worth of The Black Album remixes — including The Grey Album from DJ Danger Mouse, The Brown Album from producer Kev Brown and The Black Remixes from producer Ninth Wonder (see "Remixers Turn Jay-Z's Black Album Grey, White And Brown") — and various hip-hop clipart images to construct a custom CD cover.

    The Jay-Z Construction Set was launched late Tuesday night by a pair of men going by the pseudonyms Claire Chanel and Scary Sherman. They're disseminating the toolkit via the peer-to-peer network BitTorrent. A preview of the kit and instructions on how to use BitTorrent are available at jayzconstructionset.com.

    "At no point will [that] site serve as a hub," Chanel told MTV News. "We launched the process off by getting a few CD-ROM copies into the hands of some people ... and by placing a copy on the BitTorrent network. We hope it will spread from there."

    Theoretically, a user will be able to create their own remix album and add it to the toolkit, which would then be hosted by their computer for another person to download. In its original form, the toolkit files total 649 MB.
