Plz post your non-4/4 tunes here

Hi fellow slutz and producers (as if I ever was one )

4/4 with a subdivision of 16 beats is doubtless the most favored meter in western music.Thus if you want to hear western music, especially dance music, in other parameters than 4/4, you have to dig deep to find these needles in the haystack.

Therefore I suggest this thread, where you are very welcome to post tunes in any genre that are not in straight ahead 4/4, eg. 6/8 or 5/4 or 7/4.

So NO traditional 4-to-the-floor, which leaves out a massive amount of tunes. HOWEVER, it is allowed to post a tune in straight 4/4 if you change parameter during the tune, e.g. from 4/4 to 3/4 and back again, which would amount to 7/4.

I am an electro-head and apologize on forehand for any suffering that my own contributions may cause but they are just here to illustrate the principle, really.

1) Here is a trippy exploration of 6/4 to begin with from my time on software:

2) Here is one in 5/4 that goes polyrhythmic with a psytrance lead in 4/4 in the beginning of the tune.

3) Here are some older taped workstation stuff from the prime 90s in 12/8. Lower your bass settings on "Yom Kippur", it is mixed like sht.

Hope you like the thread idea and will dig up contributions.

Best Regards

This track is 7/4 and 5/4. Actually much of that album is non-4/4. This one is 15/8.

Thanks for the contributions so far. Had thought I would find more examples around Gearslutz. Think there were more at KVR. However, they are all nice listenings, so thanks. I really need that break from 4/4 now and then. Otherwise music will eventually sound the same to me. I mean, just hear what some alternative parameters can do to psy-trance (Denstrow's posts). Familiar yet different, like it is adding a forth dimension to it.

It is cool, fellows.
