Identify this into genre Vol. 1

So I decided to start a thread for figuring out what genres certain pieces of music can be categorized to.

Reason, today I played with this musical ideal:
https://soundcloud.com/soundmodel/octtree

Which is maybe IDM, maybe industrial, maybe Autechre-like, ...

But what would be an appropriate designation for the style of this "track"?

Re: Identify this into genre Vol. 1

It's just a beat. I'd even go so far as to call it drums, considering all of the kicks, snares and a lack of melody.

Seriously, how is a drum track supposed to be a genre? I'm curious.

Re: Identify this into genre Vol. 1

I've always thought drum and bass was kind of a stupid genre name (even being one of my favorite kinds of music)...doesn't pretty much all dance music focus on drums and the low end/bass?

Re: Identify this into genre Vol. 1

It sucks, OP, it doesn't need a genre.

Btw. why would anyone actually need genres? What other purpose apart from telling people: "I'm listening to new-retro-wave-acid-idm-edm-faggotstep" do genres have?

is this a ploy to increase your Soundcloud play count? in the past pair threads you've started about Genre you keep linking like 1-2 minute "tracks" to use as a reference for some inane thread chatter.

you need some sort of tagging\classification to find what you want, i would be really pissed if youtube put blugrass, country and gangsta rap in suggested playlists

Yes, genres help identifying things that have things in common.

Genres are like cliques; they go away after high school. You don't have to worry about them anymore, it's pretty gnarly.

there is no line between insult and valuable statement, but a smooth gradient
