A major difference between most EDM and popular music is the structure. EDM is typically formulated so that it can be used in a long continuous mix, or rather, each track is constructed to act as a fragment or sting of a much larger song or audio “journey” that is collaged together by a DJ in the mix. While pop songs, on the other hand, are complete stories in an of themselves, like a movie or a photograph. However, in recent years Pop vocals and structure are beginning to find their way into EDM. As a result, EDM becomes yet another stylistic direction that any Pop music can be infused with. This has opened the floodgates for all kinds of collaborations and remixes, some more corny than others. Big name EDM artists are now looking to cash in on the new bridges that have been formed, Christmas music is no exception. Like bad Christmas sweaters, I have tracked down some comedic Christmas EDM for your merry making needs. Merry Xmas!
