Electronic Dance Music – EDM Worship Music
Electronic music that is created especially for worship services is called EDM. Electronic music as it is commonly known is a generic term for any kind of music that is made primarily for the purpose of entertainment and is used for churches, worship services, concerts, and other musical events. The term Christian electronic dance music is somewhat misleading as it is also a generic term for any kind of music that has been created especially for worship and is used for such events. It is not Christian dance music but a generic term that can apply to any kind of music that falls under this broad category.
EDM Worship music has become very popular in the past few years. Christian worship music is becoming more popular all the time with more churches including the music in their worship services. Christian electronic dance music is quickly growing in popularity among Christians and non-Christians alike. It is no surprise that Christian EDM is also growing in popularity.
Electronic dance music such as Christian trance music has gained in popularity over the past decade. Trance music is fast paced and includes a variety of musical instruments such as keyboards, samplers, and drum machines. In trance music, artists use special instruments and have drum solos. This type of music was popularized by artists such as John Digweed, whose songs were chart-topping hits.
Today, there are many types of trance music. Some forms are chill out, world fusion, and progressive trance music. For the Christian market, Christian EDM has evolved and now includes requests for songs that have a slower tempo and are generally uplifting or Catholic in nature. For the non-religious market, Christian EDM requests include requests for upbeat tracks that are commonly used in dance mixes such as salsa, reggaeton, ballroom, and hip-hop.
While requests for Christian EDM are growing among Christians, requests for non-Christian EDM are increasing at an alarming rate. This is because the types of upbeat music that are very popular in Christian trance music have become mainstream favorites, especially on the radio. These popular songs have been programmed into popular dance mixes by top recording artists. In addition, some of these popular tunes are available for free download from the internet. Many times, these non-Christian EDM requests are made by non-Christians who have found the rhythm of uplifting Christian trance music to be similar to their own personal favorite dance tune.
As a result, non-Christians often request Christian electronic dance music on the radio or in clubs. They hope to duplicate the Christian beat that is so relaxing. However, some Christians do not feel comfortable giving out their copyright protected compositions to non-believers. Some even place a ban on Christian, electronic dance music websites altogether.
As a result of this ongoing war between Christians and non-Christians, the number of available non-Christian EDM has significantly increased. Christian EDM websites are now competing against non-Christian EDM websites for hits. This gives the consumer more options. Even though most of the Christian trance music available on the market today is uplifting and encouraging, there is still a lot of original, unique, and meaningful Christian dance-oriented electronic music available to the consumer today. It just takes a little more effort to find it.
Finding this good Christian electronic music has become easier than ever since the advent of the internet. Many websites offer searchable directories that list popular Christian trance, pop, rock, and heavy metal music. They also offer a directory of upcoming Christian worship concerts and events. For many years Christian worship was looked down upon in the secular world and now it is gaining ground and popularity as an acceptable form of worship for people of every faith.
