i' glad my talk of polyrhythms had some effect, thanks plaster !!
i've based my whole style around polyrhythms since my first actual techno vinyl release ( Nutmeg by 3000003, Roost Records 1994 )
i was using 5 TB303's, hence the name 3000003, 3 live and 2 overdubbed, each one running in a different timesignature 4/4, 3/4, 5/4, 6/8, 7/8.
its easy on a 303, because of the step function.
lots of early techno was using polyrhythms, check out Richie Hawtins remix of Alpha Wave by Sysytem 7, or anything by Hardfloor, and lots of stuff from Detroit,
polyrhythms are what trip you out, and they also make your body move in different ways.
they are the basis of all good rhythmic music, this is why ive been so frustrated with minimal techno for the last 5 or so years, because people just dont seem to use them, everything is in 4/4 loops. thats so one-dimensional.
i do hear polyrhythms more these days, but quite often in a very obvious way. if you use a 5/4 and 4/4 pattern together, your brain very quickly begins to recognise that relationship, and it quickly becomes as normal to you as a simple 4/4 pattern.
so obvious polyrhythms are really boring to me now, because i've been using them for so long. so now i have to go much deeper to create interesting rhythms, polyrythms are just the starting point. however the more you use together, the more interesting it gets.
every track i ever released is based on polyrhythms, so if anyone wants to hear various examples, check out the mindtours website for sound -bytes.
some of the tracks are more polyrhythmic than others, so try a few different ones.
my album 'Rogue Patterns and Rogue Patterns vol2 are very polyrhythmic.
