I'm not a producer, but that drum beat seems very quiet and relaxing than the Techno one and talking about the atmosphere, the background, it seems more like Ambient even if there are a lot of different melodies, according to my listening experience. Maybe this could be Ambient Techno or something else, I don't know. By the way, I like it, good job! :)

Great work with the atmosphere and the instrumentation. The thick texture of synth patterns and quirky, upbeat mood really help sell this piece. I think mixing and mastering should be a major focus of yours going forward. Not only is the mix quite quiet, but there are several points where the texture sounds really distorted (:45, for example). This is probably because of a combination of excessive reverb, a poor balance of frequencies (i.e., too much bass), and a lack of filtering work (equalization, high-passing, etc.). I'd strongly suggest looking up how to use equalizers and compressors in whatever DAW you have. It'll really help your tracks sound a lot cleaner. Besides that, I also took issue with a couple sudden transitions (like at 1:25) and the seemingly meandering structure. There is some structural repetition, but for the most part the piece had a constant energy which needed more shape and contrast. I guess I'm trying to say this: the piece has too much variation in the melodic riffs and harmonies, and not enough variation in the dynamics, intensity, etc. Overall, though, the composition is strong and the mixing needs work. Hope this helps! Keep at it, man. ;)

I really dig this. Good work
