This is  really good. Excellent sound design, multiple unique sections that attribute to a musical journey with smooth transitions that make everything feel interconnected.

As for hat genre of music, I don't know. Its unique, electronic music isn't more forte for subgenre identification. I want to say IDM without all the noodliness, because I consider IDM to be like the "Prog Rock" of electronic music. Another possibility is Psybient, a term coined by Shpongle. Their musical identity is defined by their use of psychedelic drugs but this carries a lot of the same elements as their music just minus the psychedelic aspect.

All in all, I added this one to my favorites and I'll be sure to keep an eye out for your future material wink

Yeah, Shpongle is the one I thought about for last few days after completion of this track. Mainly because I finally saw where I subconciously drew arrangement inspirations from. Also I feel like my tune has some movie soundtrack vibe to it and it isn't dance-able I guess, that's why I crossed IDM out of consideration. Although I know that defining music genre isn't always necessary I just need to do this in order to look for some labels. And I don't really listen to this type of music unless you call it Hypnotic Techno smile
Anyway thanks for stopping by, listening and trying to help!

Very spacious!  Compelling repetition and development, great sound design, as well!  I think I'd have to second "IDM without the noodliness"--you've got some enjoyable syncopated skittering in the drums, but it's not show-offy in the way that IDM can get.  Very nice work!

really cool sounds. i feel it is sort of a cross between ambient + jungle, or at least i hear those influences
