Description
~ 735 / 5,000

Each round, the debater will select and post a link to an EDM (Electronic Dance Music) song. They may not use songs already used in the debate, either by themselves or their opponent. Debaters may use songs from other debates for no more than two rounds. No more than one link (i.e. one song) per debater per round. Judges have two weeks to render their decisions, and the time for posting rounds is 48 hours.

Debaters are free to post up to 75 characters explaining their choice of song in rounds 1-4, and up to 150 characters in round 5 to explain their choice of song and to summarize the debate. As always, be polite, and may the best songs win! Thanks in advance to the chosen judges for their assistance in determining a victor!

Round 1
Pro
Thanks to Speedrace for this debate! I look forward to a fun exchange of music.

My first song is "Ocean" by Martin Garrix featuring Khalid. It's filled with beautifully soft beats and some truly heartfelt lyrics. I hope you like it.




Con
Thanks to bsh1 for this debate!

I was originally going to do a different song, but I couldn't resist this opportunity to do Ocean as well! This one is by Seven Lions and Jason Ross, featuring Jonathan Mendelsohn. This song features soft vocals over a melodic beat that reaches a crescendo into a layered beat for the chorus. I hope y'all like it!
Round 2
Pro
Thanks to Speed for his submission.

My next song is "Free" by Party Ghost and Restless Modern. It brings a gloriously fresh feeling to a well-trod topic (getting wiser/older)--there's a lot of artistry there. I hope you enjoy it!

Con
As noted in the debate description, we are allowed to use two "road-tested" songs from previous debates, but only in two rounds. I'll be using one of those now.

Nevada by Vicetone, featuring Cozi Zuehlsdorff

This EDM is beautifully mixed with an almost rock-type sound, and it is both feel-good and catchy.
Round 3
Pro
Thanks to Speed for his submission.

To go in a bit more conceptual direction, my next song is "Years from Now," by Rameses B. It interpolates dialogue from the movie Tea and Sympathy into a wondrously haunting piece. I hope you love it!

Con
Running Away by Taska Black and DROELOE, featuring CUT_

This EDM song cleverly blends violin with digital sounds and intermittent yet strong vocals.
Round 4
Pro
Thanks to Speed for his submission.

My penultimate song is "The Little Things," by Big Gigantic, the Kasbo remix. This song is food for the soul (not to mention soulful). It's simply, elegantly beautiful. I hope it speaks to you in the way it does to me.
Con
Cataclysm by Au5 and Crystal Skies

This songs starts out slow but reaches blended EDM beat that is reminiscent of some rock sounds, but yet still sounds like a classic EDM beat.
Round 5
Pro
Thanks to Speed for a debate.

My final song is "Put Me Back Together" by Cheat Codes, featuring Kiiara. It's a romantic whisper put to melody. This debate, I chose songs which were individually strong and which jibe as a collection. Graceful, soft, wistful--beautiful. I hope you love this song and the whole collection. 

Thanks to the judges for listening to my songs. Please vote Pro! Thank you.

Con
Ride Or Die by The Knocks, featuring Foster The People - Vicetone Remix

I hope you guys enjoyed all of my songs! Thank you to bsh1, and thank you to the judges. Please vote Con!
