What should I do with this?

So I have a big library of sounds like these I made, and although this one and (too many) others sound like they are multiple tracks (at one point they were), they are the result of mashing the sounds together. The problem with this approach is I have no control over the individual sounds, so what I will do, is chop them up into individual sounds, but it seems I have this habit of mashing them together again and then deleting the others (OCD I guess). I guess your guys first advice would probably be to keep all the tracks rather than deleting them when I mash them together. I just find with a these kinds of sounds, I am unsure where to go with them because I feel I am doing something I don't really know (I am not trying to go for any particular genre. Just whatever feels right)

Note, I have no education on how to EQ etc, but I wanted to ask what you guys think of my eqing. Am I going in the right direction? I guess there is no right. EIther way, what do you think of these tracks and what artist do you think is similar, and what genre do you think this is. Do you have any advice?

Wow nice sound design! I don't know why, the sounds reminds me the album ISAM by Amon Tobin. I think the EQ is ok, but I'm no expert. Also, don't overthink it, if it sounds right, it's right, whatever the workflow (but if it doesn't sounds right to you that's another problem...).

Let us know when you have tracks coming out of this!
