Drum kit demo: Polyrhythmic snare 3 against 4 over fast jazz swing 8 bars

This is a drum kit demonstration. A polyrhythm is when you can discern while listening more than one main beat tempos and that these do not sub divide into each other by multiples of 2. So a beat which contains tempos like 50, 100 and 200 is not a polyrhythm, but if you can hear tempos like 50, 75 and 80 all at once, then what you have there may very well be described as a polyrhythm. Mathematically speaking the tempo numbers make up the odd order fractions: thirds, fifths, sixths, sevenths, but not eighths or twelves if that makes sense. The even order ones are debatable in my opinion.


However polyrhythms are not tuples, which in this case means to say a “three against four” polyrhythm does not involve any triplets. Or that a “five against four” rhythm does not involve any pentuplets. This video shows a polyrhythm of 3/4 which means for each 4 quarter notes in the 4/4 measure, there is going to be exactly 3 snares or exactly an average of 0.75 snares per beat (which makes no sense) but you get the point. Hopefully. 🙂

The Commodore – Original Funk Review Feat. Ron La Pread

7 days ago last Thursday I jammed with a living legend, original bass player from 70s funk mega-group The Commodores and in my opinion composer of most the best, nastiest and funkiest tracks by the band such as Brick House, Easy, I Feel Sanctified, Young Girls are My Weakness, Too Hot Ta Trot, and the steaming mad with funk hit: Look What You’ve Done To Me Baby!

Ron La Pread is his name, still going strong, and all going to plan we will form a Commodores official review band and do some touring and hopefully also recording upcoming…

…hopefully my next email will be with dates for our first gig.

Tomachi Anthology Torrent 2018 :: My life’s work in audio over 200 tracks

Tomachi Anthology Torrent

Tomachi Anthology Torrent

Surprise! Nearly 17 hours of audio via 218 songs using 5 Gigabytes, here is every decent tune I ever did:

> > > > >
5 GB zip 218 Songs

Note from Tom:

I put this archive together for a few reasons. One was that, since most of my drives are encrypted, there is less chance for anybody to compile anything about who I was if i were to suddenly pass away. Or if a meteor hits my house and deletes the files. This is a decent backup.

The actual reason was to promote my music and increases it’s reach in a way that would be less likely effective a song at a time or even an album or artist anthology at a time. By combining all my work into a single volume enables greater “audio cross pollination” for want of a better way of describing the music discovery process.

How do people discover music these days anyhow? Odd that the “file” is becoming extinct – with the uptake of streaming services many people I know now do not maintain music collections.

A lot of the tracks are previously released and available for sale already. A lot is unreleased, and mite never have been. I forgot to add the Queens of the Stone Age track to the file, so for that, click download from the Soundcloud on desktop. (this page permalink) (the torrent)

Planned for the 2019 version: video , tracks by other smaller artists that weren’t a big thing (session gigs), for example: PHD Hip Hop, the UK Breaks Co-op version of “A place for you”, maybe some more Dam Native from the archives, and my new groups featuring Bryson Campbell (BLKMAN) and Ron LaPread (The Commodores) all going to plan! Don’t want to speak to soon though huh? Well at least I managed to get this release out. Darn I just realised I should have called this thing a Discography, Anthology is for books! Doh!!!!!

Living Colour – up close ‘n personal at Park West Chicago 2014

Here is an edit of my footage from this concert. Presently you can’t find this on Youtube or anywhere else. AMU ‘sclusive’.

Psyrulean Moon 30 March 20 minutes from Kerikeri, NZ

DJ Tomachi

I just scored my first producer set at a festival!!! It’s gonna be billed as “Tomachi” laptop and synth show. Will be at 11am on the Saturday. Normally I’m getting up to play drums but this time its just my laptop and Arturia Microbrute mono-synth. The synth will receive MIDI and I’ll twiddle the knobs. Extreme.

I love how this festival you gotta do a bank transfer to get a ticket: just $80 get in there!!!!

NO GLASS POLICY!! pretty simple.. try to find alternatives to bringing glass bottles. There will be a light search at the gate and we just prefer you to find alternatives to glass. Any glass bottles found will be confiscated and dealt with later.
If you drop glass in a quarry it will not bounce or land softly on grass,
it will become lots of little bits of glass
and that prevents some of us hippies walking around in bare feet
and earthing out with mother nature.
if you drop glass in a stone quarry it will break.
So please, it’s a small request that has the best interests of everybody at heart.

had a test run for getting pegs in the ground yesterday – it was a complete and utter fail, so if your tent NEEDS pegs to stay up/hold it’s shape, I would suggest looking at other options. If your tent does not need pegs to hold it’s shape, you will be fine as it is a quarry and there are moonbeams of rocks you can utilise to anchor your tent, just tie your guy ropes to a rock, done, easy

Our stance on bringing kids is as follows… We love psytrance culture and psy family, which does of course includes psy kids. Our concern is that this setting does include some danger areas that at times will even be closed off to adults. We are happy for you to bring your children and make a fam time of it and so many aspects of it make it pefect to do so! The water hole, the music, the lights the atmosphere… what’s not to love! But your safety is also our concern. And especially the safety of younger ones who love to run and be free. If you do decide to bring young kids, please be aware it is your resonsibitlity to be looking out for them and to make sure they are keeping within safe zones. ***Any failure to do so will mean removal from the site with no refund*** Stay within the boundries of the camping zone and the dance zone, do not let your little ones run free and unattended, purely for their safety. In future events on this site we hope to make things easier and more accommodating. As it is you are entirely resonsible for your children and no second measure will be taken for anything outside of that. If this post comes across as long and crass it’s beacause we really really do give a shit.

PHD supporting Atmosphere with brother Ali @Powerstation this saturday

PHD has scored another international support at Powerstation – this time Atmosphere and Brother Ali from Minnesota!!!

Medley of Atmosphere tracks tour promo:

PHDs support T-Pain at sold-out Studio:

PHDs full live band at Powerstation 2016 supporting TechN9ne:




A solid musical alliance, these two unique acts helped to define Minnesota hip-hop, reaching global heights with combined legacies spanning over 20 albums and 30 years. Both have been a driving force in alternative hip-hop, inspiring generations with stories of social justice, individualism and the human condition.

Headed by popular lyricist Slug alongside DJ/producer Ant, Atmosphere visit for the first time since 2012, performing hits like ‘Trying to Find A Balance’, ‘Sunshine’, ‘Yesterday’ and ‘The Best Day’ as well as songs from their new album Fishing Blues.

Returning after a hugely influential keynote address at Australia’s BIGSOUND conference Brother Ali joins the tour and is sure to get hands in the air with bouncing beats ‘Forest Whitiker’ and ‘Uncle Sam Goddamn’.

Atmosphere and Brother Ali have long been at the forefront of the independent hip-hop scene, continually pushing the boundaries of the genre and making music unlike anything heard in the commercial sphere.

Buzzing reviews are rolling in for their current US shows, boasting crowds awash with old and new generations of fans. At a time when the power of words are more important than ever, this is sure to be an inspiring alliance of live lyricism.


“It was all about hands in the air and bouncing beats” – Beat Magazine

“the crowd buzzing off what they had just been part of” – Skiddle


“it was soon clear that Slug’s onstage performance strongly outweighs his pre-recorded sound.” –

“When Atmosphere takes the stage, the crowd is deafening. They are ready to bust out every lyric of every song.” – BandsInTown


“The audience were taken aback by the complete openness that Ali displayed in his words” – Cease Fire Magazine

“The crowd was shouting amen when he threw up his hands in a justified rage.” – KRUI FM
