EDM Worship Music also is known as Electronic music or ‘EDM’ as it is also known, is an increasingly popular form of worship that blends many musical styles into one. EDM usually includes elements from hip hop, jazz, break dancing, bodybuilding, and several other popular styles of dance. The most popular Christian EDM tends to fall into one of the following three main sub-genres of EDM: Classic, Progressive, and Reggae. Let’s take a look at each one.
Classic EDM has been around since the early 80s. It consists of smooth sounding, smooth vocals with no instruments to really identify it as EDM. Some classic Christian EDM includes “Where Have All The Flowers Gone” by Clan II, “I am in Love With the Way You Lie” by AWOL, “Come As You Are” by AC/DC, “Wanted Dead Or Alive” by Def Leppard, “Love is a Ball by David Bowie, “Xxplosive” by raveriders and many others. Classic Christian EDM usually revolves around soulful vocals over hard-hitting beats.
Progressive EDM is another form of Christian song and dance that was created during the 80s. The artists creating these tracks were originally from the Caribbean and Latin America but were brought to worldwide fame through supergroups such as Akon, Fatboy Slim, and the Notwist group. Many Christian songs that fall into this sub-genre are uplifting, motivational, or message-based. Some examples of popular progressive EDM worship music include “Who’s Your Daddy 911”, “Love is a Ball”, “Hang In My Love”, and “Haitian Divorce” to name a few.
Hip hop is fast becoming a major force in the electronic, Christian music scene. Artists such as Big Daddy Kane and Rakim are making hit songs that are requested by countless people in the church community. Common requests for new upbeat Christian songs include “I’m Forever Blowing Bubbles” and “I Want To Break Free”.
Dubstep is another form of electronic Christian music that has become popular through the years. Known for its heavy bass and drum programming, this particular genre of Christian music is great for dance sets and church congregations. Many new Christian rappers are also creating their own versions of old classic dubstep songs with heavy bass and catchy lyrics. Dubstep is definitely one of the most requested free-beat music available on the internet today.
Dance or hip-hop is another of the many popular genres of electronic Christian music that is requested on a daily basis. Many churches have replaced the traditional instrumental CDs and DVDs with more contemporary styles of Christian music such as hip-hop and dance. Hip-hop and dance can easily be integrated into almost any worship service. Adding a few new upbeat EDM Worship music and Christian songs to an already successful electronic dance music set can make all the difference in the world. As many of us know, uplifting and motivating songs are an integral part of any spiritual assembly, so adding a few new upbeat Christian songs to your weekly church services can have a powerful effect on people.
Even though there are so many popular forms of Christian music available on the market today, Christian songs are still among the most requested. This is because people want to be able to enjoy the beauty of God while celebrating their faith with fellow believers. It is because of this basic premise that Christian songs are always open for debate among Christians. Christian fundamentalists are always battling with those who use non-biblical methods in worship or who make submissions to Biblical truths in order to share God’s love.
So who is really making the most requests for Christian songwriters? Surprisingly, it is young people. They typically are not older, but they are usually very talented and intelligent individuals. Many are very excited about starting a new career or have found an opportunity that they feel will give them the joy and fulfillment they’ve always hoped for. So, if you have someone who wants to write Christian EDM Worship songs, why not let them give it a try? There’s no shortage of great Christian musicians out there!
