New Heavy and Polyrhythmic Track On SoundCloud

If you give this new track a listen you may hear something I have not really used before, a cross-rhythm. There are parts of the song where a 4/4 drum loop joins the main 9/8 drum loop. The measures are the same length making it a cross-rhythm, which is a specific subset of polyrhythm. Polyrhythms are not rare, but what your ear (and brain) does with it is interesting, especially if you have never given it much thought before.
