Hi!
I dont know much about electronic music and wondndering about how you will describe this stuff.

Is this something like break beat, dubstep and drum and bass?

(1) Did you make the music from scratch or are they loops from other people?
(2) If you made them, they can be whatever genre you want to call them so long as the name fits. If you didn't make them, they can be whatever genre the originator wants to call them--if they are into identifying snippets of songs as being in specific genres.

Help me out here, why are people asking "what genre is this?" I have seen three such questions today and I am wondering why some people have the desire to identity musical genres.

It's a way to categorize and put into regional and chronological context. I'm willing to bet these tracks were not made by the OP. Asking "why do people want to identify musical genres?" is like asking "why does language have adjectives?" It's a way of talking about a thing.
