EDM Worship Music to start EDM stands for “electronic worship music”. An acronym that has developed into a global recognition and a full-fledged industry on its own. Christian EDM has become in high demand and is now a sub-genre of Christian dance music. The term ‘EDM’ is also commonly used to refer to Christian music, specifically underground or bootleg music. It is very popular in the Christian community and is growing in popularity among other Christian communities too.
Christian EDM has a sound that is uniquely Christian. However, it is no different from other forms of Christian music. Most forms of Christian music are centered around worship or praise with a refrain. Christian EDM however, is different because it is upbeat, futuristic, and has a futuristic sound to it. It has a thick bassline and heavy drums, just like the music played on rave buses and in clubs.
EDM stands for “electronic dance music”. Christian EDM emerged in the early 1990s as a distinct sub-genre from Christian music. Christian songs that are considered to be “free beat music” tend to be electronica based, rather than hard rock or heavy metal. Electronic dance music was first embraced by British church choirs who were traveling in search of new hymns. These choirs eventually developed their own styles of Christian songs and beats, which they played at services.
The most popular form of Christian music associated with EDM is “free beat music”. The main driving force behind this movement was the desire to create “danceable” gospel and Christian songs that were more “inline” with mainstream radio and entertainment. With the popularity of “break trance” and other similar EDM sub-genres, this idea became a success. Today, almost every major church group is using some form of EDM in its worship songs.
EDM stands for “effects meditation”. This concept is what gives EDM its unique appeal. EDM has a very high degree of trance-like qualities, which can make the listener go into a deep state of relaxation. Many people compare the sound of traditional Christian songs with that of a binaural beat or another form of sound manipulation, but with a much deeper quality of sound and emotion.
EDM subgenres are also varied. Technically, there are no subgenres of EDM, but rather there is EDM’s that complement each other. For instance, break trance is a genre of electronic dance that usually comes in the form of a rap song. But it can also be mixed with other genres such as hip hop and reggae. Rap and Hip hop are the most popular subgenres of Christian songs that have become immensely popular over the past decade.
EDM has evolved since it first came out. There are now many subgenres such as “playlists”, which are pre-planned playlists of EDM songs that can be played at specific times during worship. There are also private players who buy entire collections of EDM songs and create their own personal playlists for themselves and their friends. Another subgenre is known as ‘rap gospel’. This is closely related to the pop gospel but is done with a heavy dose of rap. This is definitely not your traditional Christian song but is very popular in today’s Christian society.
EDM continues to grow in popularity. The best thing about this subgenre is that it has always open doors for artists and Christian worshipers from all walks of life. The biggest challenge for these artists is convincing Christians that their subgenre, whether it is rap, Christian rock, or hip hop, is truly preaching to them on a level that is more powerful than secular music. Hopefully, this article has helped you understand the unique appeal of EDM.
