kick are 4/4 yeah although nothing stops you putting (slightly lesser) kicks in between:


DUM DUM DUM d'Dum dum | DUM DUM DUM DUM

if you see what i mean

generally if you want more "aggressive" up-tempo sounding beats you'll achieve that by what you do with the rest of the drumtrack (snares, hats, percussion, rides, cymbals, etc)

he's a poet i guess but yeah also kinda and mc and has released his own music and done collaborations.

that one is from krust - coded language.

its a phenomal post-modern take on drumnbass/hiphop/modern breakbeat music and culture :wub:

"Whereas, breakbeats have been the missing link connecting the diasporic community to its drum woven past
Whereas the quantised drum has allowed the whirling mathematicians to calculate the ever changing distance between rock and stardom.
Whereas the velocity of spinning vinyl, cross-faded, spun backwards, and re-released at the same given moment of recorded history ,
yet at a different moment in time's continuum ,
has allowed history to catch up with the present,

We do hereby declare reality unkept by the changing standards of dialogue.
Statements, such as, 'keep it real', especially when punctuating or anticipating modes of ultra-violence inflicted psychologically
or physically
or depicting an unchanging rule of events will henceforth be seen as retro-active
and not representative of the individually determined is.

Furthermore,
as determined by
the collective consciousness of this state of being
and the lessened distance between thought patterns and their secular manifestations,
the role of men as listening receptacles is to be increased by a number no less than 70 percent of the current enlisted as vocal aggressors.

Motherf**kers better realize, now is the time to self-actualize
We have found evidence that hip hop's standard 85 rpm
when increased by a number as least half the rate of it's standard
or decreased to three-quarters of its speed
may be a determining factor in heightening consciousness.

Studies show that when a given norm is changed in the face of the unchanging,
the remaining contradictions will parallel the truth.

Equate rhyme with reason, Sun with season

Our cyclical relationship to phenomenon has encouraged scholars to erase the
centers of periods,
thus symbolizing the non-linear character of cause
and effect
Reject
mediocrity!

Your current frequencies of understanding outweigh that which as been given for you to understand.
The current standard is the equivalent of an adolescent
restricted to the diet of an infant.
The rapidly changing body would acquire dysfunctional and deformative symptoms
and could not properly mature on a diet of apple sauce
and crushed pears
Light years
are interchangeable with years of living in darkness.
The role of darkness is not to be seen as,
or equated with,
Ignorance, but
with the unknown,
and the mysteries of
the unseen.

Thus, in the name of:
ROBESON, GOD'S SON, HURSTON, AHKENATON, HATHSHEPUT, BLACKFOOT, HELEN, LENNON, KHALO, KALI, THE THREE MARIAS, TARA, LILITHE, LOURDE, WHITMAN, BALDWIN, GINSBERG, KAUFMAN, LUMUMBA, GHANDI, GIBRAN, SHABAZZ, SIDDHARTHA, MEDUSA, GUEVARA, GUARDSIEFF, RAND, WRIGHT, BANNEKER, TUBMAN, HAMER, HOLIDAY, DAVIS, COLTRANE, MORRISON, JOPLIN, DUBOIS, CLARKE, SHAKESPEARE, RACHMNINOV, ELLINGTON, CARTER, GAYE, HATHOWAY, HENDRIX, KUTL, DICKERSON, RIPPERTON, MARY, ISIS, THERESA, PLATH, RUMI, FELLINI, MICHAUX, NOSTRADAMUS, NEFERTITI, LA ROCK, SHIVA, GANESHA, YEMAJA, OSHUN, OBATALA, OGUN, KENNEDY, KING, FOUR LITTLE GIRLS, HIROSHIMA, NAGASAKI, KELLER, BIKO, PERONE, MARLEY, MAGDALENE, COSBY, SHAKUR,
THOSE WHO HAVE BURNED,
THOSE STILL AFLAME,
AND THE COUNTLESS UNNAMED

We claim the present
as the pre-sent,
as the hereafter.
We are unraveling our navels so that we may ingest the sun.
We are not afraid of the darkness,
we trust that the moon shall guide us.
We are determining the future at this very moment.
We now know that the heart is the philosophers' stone
Our music is our alchemy
We stand as the manifested equivalent of 3 buckets of water and a hand full of minerals, thus realizing that those very buckets turned upside down supply the percussive factor of forever.
If you must count to keep the beat then count.
Find your mantra and awaken your subconscious.
Curve your circles counterclockwise
Use your cipher,
to decipher,
Coded Language, man made laws.
Climb waterfalls and trees,
commune with nature, snakes and bees.
Let your children name themselves
and claim themselves
as the new day
for today
we are determined
to be
the channelers of these changing frequencies into songs, paintings, writings, dance, drama, photography, carpentry, crafts, love,
and
love.
We enlist every instrument: Acoustic, electronic.
Every so-called gender, race, sexual preference.
Every per-son as beings of sound to acknowledge their responsibility to uplift the consciousness of the ENTIRE. FUCKING. WORLD.

Any utterance un-aimed,
will be disclaimed,

not my transcription , i fixed a few errors but there may be some left... the best i can do :Grin: :o

the part from "Our music is our alchemy" through to "entire fucking world" is pretty much my personal equivalent of the ten commandents.
