i think you are a good producer. I just think your aesthetic will make it hard to get noticed. IF you don't have melody, sound production and the use of those sounds is really the only way to make your mark. I never tried to copy the guys I loved because I could never even come close.
Before this, I was in a punk band about to get signed to fat record until my brother fucked off and went to university. I was used to that soCal nofx strung out type stuff so things tended to end up like well a guy in to metal and punk doing trance. So like I just kinda jumped into dance. But by the end , i had about 500 records i bought from online stores and this old school dj who retired and sold me his collection of 5000 records for 1000. Like every club track you could imagine from 1990. Like there was all this house , like that west coast house i couldn't stand but i bet people would die for them. I think i sold them for like 200 because my parents wanted them out of the house and I decided to pursue other things so didn't see the point of holding on to them.
everyone always says i have potential, but to act out and fully develop is another story, wish i could say i will do it but thats not reality.
i see traits in your tracks from other tracks i probably heard, influences for sure at least, like scot project(ruh roh).
interesting bit about the hardware, i can somewhat relate. i dont use any vsts, i use a closed system (reason) i have to do much of the sound design myself, ofcourse its not the same, its way easier.
i want to see you make a track today, or this year rather, will you do that? im sure if you pour even 1000 bucks into your album/single/ep promotion you will be talk of the town.
the way i see it, its pretty much impossible to make it without finanical backing, and i dont have that so i just emulate tracks i love, going on a progressive house spree, it makes me dance in my room and im happy.
