it's based on the timing of the rotations of the record. ask Lawrie Immersion about it sometime... he is a pressing god. He once pressed a track inside another track so depending where you dropped the needle you got 1 of 2 songs on that side of the record. he also does plenty of lockd grooves on his records.
dunno why since i've never heard him use any that i can think of in a set....
but... i didnt read the whole thread so i'm sure someone already answered this question.

and do I make it that speed or does the masterer/cutter
do that???? if so, how do i do that? i mean the programs i use
won't allow a .33333333 speed...

that track within a track double groove thing is done on alot of Detroit records that came out of NSC. Ok well not alot, but more-so than most other genres (that I know of). I believe it was NSC that also pioneered the Locked Groove..I could be wrong about that though.

you need to record your tracks at 133.33 bpms.
also I dont know if you can do that on a 10 inch you need to find out....
also techno on 10 inch records are not recommended...
the grooves are to small to keep the needle from bouncing out of the groove you need a wider plane like a 12 inch to handel all the bass...
