I was going to make Divinci's post yesterday. Haha.

Basically, it can be counted as 4/4 with accents at the appropriate places.

I don't remember the song, to be honest, but it's very likely that certain elements are in different time signatures and they meet up due to the number of times they're repeated.

This happens in prog rock a lot (King Crimson, Tool, as examples) where you have a drummer riding on a 4/4 beat with accents and everyone else playing in some crazy time signature.

Yeah - I'd call it 6/8. Technically, the only difference between 3/4 and 6/8 would be if the music was notated or if a conductor was conducting it. The reason I would call it 6/8 is because, due to the fast tempo, if a conductor was going to conduct it, they would most likely make a motion on the first beat per 'triplet', instead of every note of the 'triplet' (triplet is in quotes because in 3/4 or 6/8, it's not a true triplet notation-wise, it would just be notated as a quarter note). So, it's definitely not a waltz tempo, which is why I wouldn't call it 3/4.

But, programming-wise, the tracks were composed in 3/4 because it was just to make it easy to snap to the timeline. I'm not even sure the software I used has 6/8 on it as an option.

Was the beat made first, before you heard the raps or the other way around? I wonder if it was harder for Prolyphic to flip it in a different time, or if you had to match his rhythm.

His verse was originally in 4/4 and then I put the 6/8 beat behind it. I thought it worked as-is, but then he re-did the verses to go more with the 6/8 triplet feel.

Actually, it was easy re working the verse to fit the 3/4 6/8 tempo.

Dick and Jane has grown to be one of my favorite songs on the album, for many reasons.

Until I started studying music last year I had no idea what 6/8 or say, 12/8 were... I always thought rhythms like this were just 3/4. But yeah it all still has that basic 4/4 pulse in there... I really like this track, I love hearing beats do things like that.

I'll read this interview in full later today, I wanna give it some proper time. Thanks for the heads up!
