however, it still has an intro and outro in 4/4 to make mixing possible, only the main part of the track is 3/4.
most producers will just coerce a non-4/4 theme into 4/4 to make it work. it's not exactly EDM, but an example of how to do that is the "mission impossible" theme. the original from the old tv series is 5/4, but the remake for the movie is 4/4:
thanks a bunch for clearing that up!
how'd you ever find out that bit about the Mission Impossible theme song
i dunno, isn't it obvious? you can hear right away that the original is 5/4 and the remake isn't... can't you?
i can give you many more examples of popular songs with an "irreglar" beat, 5/4 or 7/8 or whatever, just none of them have had a remake into 4/4 that i know of

there's two simple reasons why not to do it: it's gonna be unmixable, unless you have an intro and outro that's still 4/4, and people won't know how to keep track of the beat and thus won't know how to dance to it, therefore killing the flow.
I don't know how to describe the first.. the kick doesn't come where you expect it, thats how I recognized..
New concept: mixing as many EDM genres in one mix as possible, to obliterate narrowmindedness Borders within Genres vanguish, check out my mix consisting of DnB, Dubstep, Hardstyle, House and of course TRANCE!
dfx: i can hear the difference in time signatures im just curious as to why you would youtube both theme songs
i wouldn't i've always known the mission impossible theme was 5/4, long before they made that movie. when the movie came out, i was kinda disappointed to hear they made the theme into a "simpler" 4/4 beat. and that kinda got stuck in my head
