Description

1 per Round song, voters vote which they liked best, can talk a bit about the song if we want to but it's not as much a debate as a gamble on taste of voters.

2 Rules:
Not more than 1 by same artist per debater (both debaters can use same artist as other, once but not more).
There should be at least 1 song in the 5 that's a different branch or subgenre within EDM than the others, hybrid EDM poppy tracks can count as the breakaway.

Round 1
Pro
#1
Song Name: Turn Left

Artists:
Snavs
WiDE AWAKE

Genre/Subgenre: Trap EDM (tribal trap lean in my opinion)


Con
#2
Song name: Internet Friends 

Artist: Knife Party

Just for the starter I thought, this song would be appropriate due to you blocking me.
Enjoy!

Round 2
Pro
#3
Song Name: Heads or Tails

Artists:
QUIX
Amba Shepherd

Genre/Subgenre: Trap with Wave vibe (melodic trap or even 'pure trap' it has no strong leaning). Wave refers to the softer, melodic vibe of it where the synths overpower the percussion on the drops.

Epilsepsy Warning The YT vid has lightning and such effects, not direct strobing but it could be a concern. You can just play and look away from screen.

Con
#4
Song Name: Killin' It

Artist: Krewella

Round 3
Pro
#5
Song Name: Bombay Dreams

Artists:
KSHMR
Lost Stories

Genre/Subgenre:  Hybrid EDM fused with folk music of India, Electro is the most prominent subgenre within it.

The Indian folk music style is much more North Indian than South Indian, I think it's in particular influenced by the region of Rajasthan.

#6
Song Name: Breathe

Artist: Mark The Beast

This one’s a head banger 

Round 4
Pro

Apologies, I forgot to accredict Kavita Seth for the vocals in the previous Round's song.

==

Song Name: In Your Bones (Chiefs Remix)

Artists:
Crooked Colours
Chiefs

Genre/Subgenre: Trap with Wave vibe. This is a more chill end of the Wave spectrum whereas my Round 2 is a more intense variant of Wave-vibe Trap.


The genres from Pro have been:

Hybrid of Electro and Dubstep EDM with 'robostep' lean (Round 1)
Hybrid of Dubstep and Drum n Bass (AKA drumstep) (Round 2)
Classic Dubstep with very harsh pace/vibe. (Round 3) 

Ultimately all three so far are the same overarching subgenre of EDM known as Dubstep, I request 1 song from him that is not fundamentally dubstep as per the rules of the debate.

Song: 
Now You're Gone

Artist:
Basshunter

Genre/Subgenre: electro house.

This is an old school throwback.

Good match, looking forward to the votes.

Time to slap you with the kind of dubstep I can get behind.
