Wow! Didn't get a chance to comment on these tracks; they're extremely impressive. It's amazing how many different instruments and timbres are possible with mixing software nowadays, and how you've managed to juggle so many of them in each track so fluidly.
I'd love to know about the process that goes into making one of these tracks. How does it start? Do you have an idea of what each instrument will sound like, and how exactly that will translate to the software? How much of it is tinkering with melodic ideas, harmonies and chord progressions, and how much of it is listening to the same two seconds of music on loop a hundred times while fiddling with the sliders, getting it just right? I'd imagine it takes tons of patience to coordinate every little transition just perfectly in these huge ambitious soundscapes you're creating.
I must admit I don't listen to much high-production electronic dance music - I come from a classical music background, and I'm partial to the nice old fashioned style, where development of motifs and chord progressions is the primary focus of a song. But I have no doubt that there's a lot to learn from seeing how these kind of tracks are put together, and you've obviously put in a ton of work that has certainly paid off.
Good luck to you in the future - you seem to be doing well already
(From what I've heard, I'd vouch for you over Buzz if PQ needs any new soundtracks. In my opinion you seem to have a finer grasp of what kinds of voices sound good together.)

Thank very much for the detailed comments hPerks. All of my music is made in a software called FL Studio and on top of that I use a lot of synthesizer or FX plugins to help make my sounds better.
The creation process is often very random. I could have an idea in my head or gather some inspiration from a specific song to help me come up with something, or I could just be messing around with different sounds and melodies until I come up with something interesting. The process of listening to specific loops over and over again is usually the mixing stage which often takes the longest time. Getting a mix on a song to sound clean can be a very lengthy task and I sometimes find myself stuck on this stage. On average it takes me usually around 10 hours spent in the project file to finish a song.
Even it's not to my tastes.. DUDE, this is AMAZING!! You are definitely very talented with your producing. I haven't had time to listen to any of your other stuff, but I suppose now I should. This kind of stuff makes me wish I was little more experienced with producing... I'm sure I'll get there eventually.
Some of your D&B tracks remind me of the later Pendulum albums and their Knife Party spinoff too. I'm genuinely impressed.
You should seriously consider licensing these if you haven't already. Just looking at your activity on Soundcloud and the other comments here it's quite evident you've hit the right audience. Well done, mate!
