    Interesting idea. But what about hustle? Three major steps to a regular 4/4 measure?

    maybe it should start in france:

    the french audience is clapping on the down beat, so harry connick jr adds a beat so that the french audience, which doesn't change, is subsequently clapping on the off-beat.

    as god (and harry connick jr) intended.

    old school hustle music (disco) kept a constant accent on every beat so it wasn't an issue. as such, i would maintain that a DJ that picks music that has onbeat/offbeat feel has merely chosen a bad song to play for hustle.
