Postby Camer138; Sat Mar 01, 2014 3:43 pm Electronic buffs, what sub genre is my song?

I am quite new to electronic music and am completely lost when it comes to sub genres. Could you guys please let me know what sub genre my song falls into? I feel like it is closest to drum and bass but I really have no clue.

To some this doesn't matter, but I just want to label my song correctly on Soundcloud.

Also, any feedback would be greatly appreciated!

I don't know to much about genres too, but the song rocks!

I'd probably say this is closer to a faster tempo techno than DnB.

Probably fine to label it as electronica. It doesn't have much in common with drum 'n bass or techno imo. Sounds quite cinematic and soundtrack like to me. I would simply go with 'electronica' if it was me. Interesting and creative tune btw :)

thanks for the compliments and suggestions.. I ended up changing it to orchestral electronica as I had someone else say something very similar to me.

Sweet track. Bassline reminds me vaguely of Squarepusher and his brother a bit. I tend to call music like this "progressive" as it tends to revolve around arrangements and have different sections. So I'd go with Progressive Electronica. But just Electronica is fine (if a bit of a blanket genre).
