    What type of house/techno am i making

    Hi all,

    Thanks for taking the time to have a look at my query.
    I recently started making music on my phone on an android app called Rd4.

    I dont know what catergory to put my music into? Could somebody please take a listen and let me know what you think it is?

    The drums are kinda break beat-ish but the sound is more atari video game 12-bit strangeness.

    Please keep in mind i have just started so any CONSTRUCTIVE critism is welcome as well as a point in the way of any such related forums or communities.

    I recently purchased a roland tr-8s drum machine for my drums but not sure what synth to get to get this kind of 12-bit sound but cleaner.

    Below are 4 samples of what im currently making excuse the rough mixes

    First of all, not bad man and second of all sounds techno ish but cant tell you which sub genre precisely... Feedback vise keep experimenting maybe to working on making some variations to the tracks (but these are just rough drafts so...), add some cool atmosphere and maybe when you decide to finish these try separating some sounds in the stereo field as well as use some panning.

    acid techno?
    retro technio?
    experimental techno?

    sounds a bit like patrick cowleys early experiments to me, in a good way.
    bored, curious, deaf or just bad taste in music?
    finally a mix by me
    and what's this, another shoddy mix...another dull mix

    Sounds like early minimal to me. I like it

    The production is very minimal - drum machine one or two synth lines and a couple of samples.

    Sounds a bit like some early detroit stuff in places.

    A lot of these guys used (obviously) the Roland TB303 for acid patterns, but also the Roland SH101 which was a nice little performance analogue synth.

    Behringer brought out a clone of this recently which looks awesome.
