Hi Silenthill2006

I listened to Pusher. It doesn't sound like tech-house to me. It sound more progressive house/trance or even ambient/dreamhouse. The production sounds ok to me. The hats might be a little loud. Is it mixed? have you given it a mixdown? It sounds quite "raw" (maybe you'll understand me). Some nice fx and i like the pad.
I mean it doesn't sound like the tech-house i know, but maybe i'm a bit out of date, i know tech-house from about 1997 to 2005 then i haven't listened to the recent tech-house since it got more popular.

I appreciate you listening and thanks for the feedback! It is mixed but I know what you are saying. The hi hats were intentional like a Trap influence on it. The main reason I called it tech house was because I was looking at a Captain Plugins tutorial of how to make Tech House, but I guess I morphed it into it's own thing.

I listened to "Hero." It has a pretty melody. The mix was good.

I would describe the rhythm as plodding. I think it would be better if it were shorter and introduced new sounds in different sections.
