Re match time! Let’s start with an Israeli EDM song called “Mishpacha Shel Simcha.” For those interested, I have provided the translation for you 




I heard that you're having a party without me
No one does it better than me
Hey, let's put the troubles behind
I'm not leaving until everyone's crazed
 
Hey, I heard you've started without me
No one does it better than me
Hey, the head spins already, everybody's high
We won't stop until everyone's crazed
 
Give me a hit song
give me a kick, the beat is getting hotter
 
A revolution of joy
Cause we're all a family
And we'll dance like crazy
Cause it's time to fly
From now on only joy
From dusk to dawn
We're gone insane, guilty
If you drink you do dance**
 
God, God,
Guard the dancing
Hug the lovers
So we could always be happy
 
Soldier, bring the crowd up
They're not dancing at all
People, put your hands up
 
A revolution of joy
Cause we're all a family
And we'll dance like crazy
Cause it's time to fly
From now on only joy
From dusk to dawn
We're gone insane, guilty
If you drink you do dance**
 
People demand Eastern beat...***
 
All the party people
Let me see you move

As a child, the way you characterize the songs is a little unsettling lol (taboo?) but I’m glad we have similar tastes in music, when I first heard Nevada I just listened to it over and over and over I loooove that song

Criterion Pro Tie Con Points
Winner 1 point
Reason:
Ray of hope:
Nice hard edge, not too dubstep. Not super catchy but a pretty decent song:7
Synchronize.
This sounds like a pretty middle of the road summer dance track, while it was passable, it was mostly forgettable: 5
In flames:
So, this song was okay, I thought the drop was pretty good, but that’s mostly all there was, not enough catchiness or variation for me: 6
Ride or die: boom! Love this track, catchy hook, nice drop: I would have liked it a bit faster but I felt enjoyed this one, though a bit less than would warrant a ten: 9
Vicetone: now this is a ten. This has hints of Avicii at his prime, loved the bounced, loved the hook. Could not fault this at all: 10
Total 37
Mishpacha Shel Simch:
This has an edge of europium, rather than explicitly EDM, without the intrinsic catchiness of Dragostea din tei: 3
Panic at the disco:
I actually loved this track! Catchy hook made better by a pretty decent drop. It’s not my favourite type of EDM, but a great work out track: 7
Without me:
Drop was too short, but the build up was amazing. I particularly loved the layers on the build up. I was a little disappointed until the later half where disjoint sound seemed to add to the track rather than making it feel like something was left out: 7
Harder better faster longer.
I love this song for the subtle variations it uses throughout! Not my fave DF track, but I do like really it: 8
Save the world:
I really like this track too: and SHM in general, this is not my favourite of theirs: but it’s on the catchy side with a decent drop: 8.
Total: 35
Pro wins 37-35.
Quality was really high on both sides imo - and unfortunately 35 would have probably won you every other EDM battle from my memory. Good job both.

Reason:
So, will judge this debate based on the balance of round (i.e. who "won" the most rounds). In the first round, I liked Pro's entry. While I definitely don't prefer instrumental-only music, this wasn't bad as those kinds of tracks go. It did get a bit heavy-handed at the end. Before I even listened to Con's, I was thinking to myself, "this is going to be super religious...oh god." BUT PARTY!!! Some nice electro house...It's making me think about lots of hot guys wearing almost nothing at all, dancing and sweaty at some beach club in Mykonos, and I am LIVING for it! So, when I read the lyrics, there are some boner-killing references to god, but I still liked this song best for this round.
In round two, OMG...from the first sung notes I am all in with Pro's choice. Beautiful, gentle, ethereal...When the beat drops, I'm not sure I like what follows. It's a bit too repetitive, but the rest of it is great. That voice could serenade me any day. Con's entry...Panic! At the Disco is always hit or miss for me. This was okay until about 1:02. I just think there are too many competing layers here--take it to church lyrics with a kind of dreamlike music and a clashing thunder after the beat drops. It's trying to be soul, that delicate kind of butterfly EDM, and a banger all at once and it's just not working for me. This round goes to Pro.
In round three, it took me awhile to warm up to Pro's entry, but I did. I like it, but I don't think it's anything special. I am liking the music a lot, but the vocals just are doing it for me. I wanted a falsetto or a more assertive approach or something...It was nice, but not great. Con's entry started with a great base. I'm a boy with luv for Halsey! And the beat drop was great--none of the clashy clashy nonsense. But, for a remix, it didn't feel like it remixed much--I think there was more room for it to go crazy on the song. Kinda got blueballs there...Still, Con's entry was more my style. I love that thing they do when they take snippets of the singers voice to create sounds...No idea what it's called, but I like it.
In round four, Pro's song title here is aggressive. Not sure if we're talking assertive smooth, or leather gang sex party yet...But I end up getting neither. Soft vocals with an edgy beat drop...I like it. I could rock to this...and it's growing on me. And now I'm thinking about double entendres...edge...growing... Yeah, definitely like this. So, Con's entry is a classic...but it is soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo, so REPETITIVE! I mean, like if this came on, of course I'd do the gay robot to it, because you have to, ya know? But I don't think I would choose to play it myself. Though, I will give it kudos for more double entrendes, and the groovy sound, OMG...That's why it's a classic. Funky. But Pro's choice is still better this round. Con's entry, had it been in Round 2, might have won him that round, but not this one.
Finally, in round five, Pro literally chose a song that's in my own Spotify. YOU GO SPOCK! Mind-reading ftw! THIS SONG IS FIRE!! WORK! Literally...this song is the aural version of fire...Hot and intense, but totally sexy. Con chooses a song I used to own on iTunes back when I used it, so I guess mind-reading x2...? Unfortunately for Con, my tastes have changed since high school. There is something overwrought and almost hollow about this song. It's trying to be a banger, but its too overdramatic to really hit the mark. This round goes to Pro.
By my count, that's 3 for Pro, 2 for Con. Much closer race than last round, but still a Pro victory. Every judge has their own style, and I'm more in sync with what Pro's offering this debate.
