First off, there are some nice elements in this track that I enjoyed.

Unfortunately, the polyrhythm you went with didn't sit well with me. If you remove that, I will like this track a ton more lol. With that said, keep experimenting with polyrhythms, its something I am working on too and I think they can add a ton of dynamic to your rhythm sections.

Other than that, the rest of the elements I liked :)

Cool man, thanks for checking!

Yeah the rhythm is a bit special.. I liked that about it though. It's cool for a track, but I don't think it'll become a signature move anytime soon.

I'm just experimenting with drums as well.. I'm trying to move away from the 4x4 kick with the off beat hat to give it a bit of tempo.
This isn't actually a polyrhytm, I applied a timeshaper to the kick and shuffled the mid and highs about with it. That speeding up and slowing down creates the unstable feel. Polyrhythms are cool too, but that would make it harder to mix I imagine.. and my DJ skills being what they are, not sure how that would work.

Liking this alot

I didnt even notice the polyrythm but then I am a big Autechre fan

I guess only 4 to the floor kids will be scratching their heads

If you remove it the track will be just another boom tick tune

Thanks man. I love me some Autechre as well, big influence.
More stuff coming soon (I'm building a label around this kind of stuff)!
