On the release, Parris explains: “Crimson Kano started out as an idea in exploring polyrhythms and time signatures. I saw Ben UFO mention this idea when describing using different polyrhythms to swap tempo seamlessly in a DJ set and I wanted to try to write a tool that explored this idea explicitly where it kinda leaves you like ‘wtf, how did I get here’.”
“I’ve written a few tunes in 3/4 but never at 160 so wanted to show how you can explore two different rhythms at once at the same time, to make something sound fast and slow simultaneously. I expected the idea to align at a different tempo to the one it ended up at in the final part of the tune: but that’s the fun part with ideas like this, sometimes things don’t end up as you expect them to!”
