let's try to keep the shitposting to a minimum, please? (tho wow, those two songs are so similar in form and sound design i thought they were the same track at first)

this is definitely in the deep house or future house range, though tbh i don't really think there's too much of a difference between the two.

If you're getting caught up in the genre, try categorizing your songs by how they feel. Assign arbitrary descriptions and start putting things in that sound similar enough so that when you start DJing, you can transition between genres more easily by following their common elements.

guess im not sure if youre saying my post is shitpost

yes thats why i thought it was a newer genre so i can classify it that way

do you use rekordbox to classify yours or what

I was referring to the other people posting unhelpful answers, not you. don't worry!

And I personally use iTunes as my music managing software. It can be a bit risky, but I prefer it over organizing my songs within my DJ software. I use Traktor and rekordbox, so I focus on building smart playlists inside iTunes based on key and genre/style as well as whatever other tags I can think of, then I either import songs one by one into rekordbox or just play off the smart playlists through Traktor.
