I dunno.... gonna take a

I dunno.... gonna take a cheap stab (no pun intended ha!) at it........ Sounds kind of like a downtempo-progrock-trance-triphop beat.... you, sir, have created your own electronic genre.

Like this song. I would place

Like this song. I would place it under EBM (electronic body music), or maybe even better it's offshoot electro-industrial.

http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electronic_body_music#section_2

Still a broad genre, but several bands I heard incorporate trancelike elements. They often have more interesting beats than the typical four-to-the-floor, which I'm hearing here as well (a more interesting beat I mean).

Or maybe call it ITM (intelligent trance music). Also a new genre I think.

Hmmm

That's a tough one. I think I'd just define it as electronic? Great work BTW. I like the progression & it has a movie soundtrack-type vibe.

I suck at defining all the different electronic sub-genre's... like, you know how some people- hipsters mostly- will break it down to some sub-sub-genre with all their expertise... something like "Oh, well lately I've gotten really into prog-garage scream-o" :D

I love that shit. But seriously I can label electronic music as House, Industrial, Trance, Breakbeat, Progressive house/trance, Drum & bass, Electro, Goa (I still don't know what the hell that really is), Ambient, Chilled, Trip-hop, Downtempo etc. etc. and some crossings of the above. I may be out of certain loops.

ITM is just something I made

ITM is just something I made up, sort of a 'cheap stab' at the term IDM (always disliked that term).

Think I have to mostly agree with Andy Bones. IMO labels are just something for catalogues, it can help guide listeners. But the amount of genres and subgenres can get absurd. Maybe for an artist it can also limit creativity. I don't really see myself as an artist, but when I try and make something I'm not working within a genre, I'm just doing whatever, otherwise I may have to take stuff like 'genre conventions' into account (those will probably give me a headache).
