Irregular Beat

I'd love to extend this but I'm looking for a collaborator who thinks they can handle rapping over some irregular time signatures. This is some completely unexplored ground here. If you want to give it a go I'll work with you just let me know.

Not sure if I'm counting this the same way you are but it does add up. I counted it like this:
7 8 7 8 4 7 8 8 7 8 7 8 4 7 8 8
Not sure if the 7 8 8 7 was supposed to show up in the count or if it's just syncopation.

I'll give you 4/5 stars for the originality, but the sad truth is the beat could be better. The rhythm isn't particularly catchy (in fact it barely makes sense, other than the recurring 7+8 alternating), but I think the real turn-off here is that it sounds too mild. I'm not a huge fan of dubstep, but I think some heavy industrial sounds would better fit the jerky irregularity of the beat. Chill syncopation sounds almost like an oxymoron to me.

I've been looking for something like this, though, so you can count on me to try writing a few bars for this.
