Electronic music isn’t my absolute favorite, but I thought it would be a nice mental change from serious debates to a battle

Thank you bsh! <3
Yes he is a black Orthodox Jew. He grew up Christian, then converted to Islam, and now he’s an orthodox Jewish rapper. He’s an interesting fellow

I’ve only heard A&B’s remix of Let Go by Seven Lions, what other songs by them do you like?

Lol I figured you’d say that, given his history with me I think it’s fair to say that’s a bit of a stretch, but you’re the boss

Criterion Pro Tie Con Points
Winner 1 point
Reason:
So, I am going to vote based on my preferences for each round. In this first round, I strongly preferred Pro's to Con's in a relative sense, though, in an absolute sense, I was not super on board with either. There was something too ballady about it, which I don't like in my EDM. Said the Sky does some nice stuff, but this wasn't clicking for me. Also, I do strongly tend to prefer songs which are not solely instrumental.
In round two, I loved Pro's entry. It was literally just my style--it sounds at home in my spotify. Con's entry was better than last round, but still unimpressive. Also, is that a black Orthodox Jew? That's a new one.
In round three, for an instrumental, Pro's entry was okay, but it could occasionally come across as too hard-rocky. Con's entry had me until 0:40. The song had so much potential, but was just destroyed by the almost screamy noises that were interrupting the melody. Both songs had similar problems for me, but Pro's was less jarring overall.
In round four, I enjoyed Pro's entry. It didn't feel particularly special, but it was enjoyable, and I'll probably add it to my own playlist. Con, this is another situation where it's just too ballady for me. It's more overwrought than Abba, and just...no. The song itself is a gay anthem classic, but I am not even sure I would call this EDM.
In round five, I was just like "YASSSSS! WORK BITCH!" listening to Pro's entry. It's disco-inspired EDM, and that's perfection. I am here for it! Con, RIP Avicii. If this had been your R3 entry, you would have won that round. But, against Pro's R5 submission, it just sounds a bit dated. Levels has a lot of soul, but it's super repetitive musically.
I think Pro won all five rounds. Some rounds were close, some rounds weren't. But I think Pro's selections were far more to my taste, so that's how I will vote. Good debate, you guys!

Reason:
Rush over me:
above and beyond are one of my favourite EDM groups, this is a very similar style - and I really liked it as background, but didn’t have as much of a grabbing hook as I would have liked: 7
The zero point
(Not to be confused by point zero by li kwan lol).
Again, had a very A&B feel it it with a great drop. I preferred the layers to this one, much more than the first song: 8
Carbon:
Nice combination of an ashtrax type of sound, combined i with a more dubstep drop. I quite liked this as an easy listening track, but not enough to give it more than a 7.
First time:
Nice atmosphere to it, I felt it was let down by the drop, and the background drums on the build up. It’s kinda like the first two songs, but between the drops felt a bit awkward:5
Lost summer:
This is a generic dance track that played in literally every club I’ve ever been to at 12am - played as filler while everyone gets drunk/high and isn’t going to dance. Generic: 3
Total: 30
Bach synthesizer remix
Ugh! Noooo. This is terrible. There are so many classical music remixes to drop that your focus on this one was so bad. 1.
(You could have dropped barbers adagio by ferry corsten and I would have given you 10)
Mercy:
this didn’t feel like EDM, it was okay, but more middle of the road rapping: 3
Shrillex: sprites
Not my favourite skrillex song, but it’s passable: 6
Total eclipse:
Sorry virt: this is metal. Nice cover though.
Avici - levels.
Yes. My favourite avici song, on my current play lists - I love this very much. What I really like about this, is both the catchy hook, the counter balancing to that hook, the minimalistic feel, but one that has layers, but also the gaps and pauses in the music between some of the beats- it introduces a unique staccato feel that makes this song great for running, or for dancing. 10
Total: 20
Clear win to speed race.

I prefer Virt's songs but whether the "Total Eclipse" cover is electronic music is questionable. According to Google the sole genre of the cover is "metal". Great song though
