Beat Dissected: 5/4 Drum and Bass Inspired By Machinedrum Using Loopcloud

If jazz led you to electronic music, then you’ve most likely stumbled upon Dave Brubeck’s ‘Take Five’, which is the perfect example of how 4/5 started to gain popularity. As time signatures started to get tweaked more regularly, it opened the door for electronic music to explore beyond 4/4.
