This style of music can usually be heard at large live events, festivals, some churches, or on specific internet radio stations such as ‘Radio U Fusion: EDM’, ‘GLOW’ and ‘URLive’.
Christian EDM is not entirely different to mainstream EDM in that both styles use electronic instruments and share a similar dance-friendly beat.
The main difference between Christian and mainstream EDM is in the tracks that contain lyrics.
Though not all EDM tracks will have lyrics in them, the Christian EDM lyrics vocalise Christian messages such as God’s love and grace or are remixes of popular Christian songs, like for King and Country’s ‘God Only Knows’.
Mainstream EDM tracks with lyrics ill at times will refer to more controversial issues such as drug use and other themes that do not align with Christian values.
This calls into question the legitimacy of Christian EDM musicians and the genre itself by some vocal Christian influencers.
