Ever thought about, or tried, working with more obscure timesigs? 9/4, 15/16, 7/8? ...7/5??? Do you think it's even possible to 'groove' and 'dance' such preposterous beats? You know you want to...

My remix of Shpongle's '...Tea Daze' was done in 7/8 or something and I think it grooves ok. A lot of the music I listen to is written in ridiculous time signatures but I rarely feel the urge to recreate the effect.

I don't set out to avoid time signatures which deviate from fours and eights but I don't naturally gravitate to them. I think I have a fear of trying to appear clever for its own sake.
