Stefan Goldmann presents the first real innovation in the vinyl format in years! 144 locked grooves build a toolkit that breaks out of the limitation of one 4/4 cycle and brings unique possibilities to create complex polyrhythms just with two decks and a mixer. The Grand Hemiola loop toolkit overcomes the time restriction of locked grooves: one record contains loops in 4/4, the other in 3/4 (employing the time differences of the rotation rates 33 and 45 rpm). In the mix, they sum up to an extended cycle of 3x 4/4 or 4x 3/4 and enable building complex "3 over 4" polyrhythms ("Hemiolas"). You can mix loop into loop for hours without ever getting trapped. Additionally, the A & C sides contain a 6 full-track mini-album of haunted acoustics, haptic percussion and deep, rhythmic expression.
