We're down to 16 contenders!

 

2 matches last round were a tie. So I had to remove my own vote and declare the other topics the winner. So:

 

Intentionally losing the "one" in a track, and getting lost in an amorphous bath of buzzes, clicks, and clanks beat Obsessing over music from 20 years ago because it's "cutting edge".

 

and

 

Nominating Ulillillia every year until he wins beat Being shamed for listening to repetitive music.

 

So BOTH Ulillillia topics are still in.

 

Ordinary words that sound vaguely futuristic was one of the lower seeded teams, but it's still in the running, after beating The fact that we didn't award MOST IDM to the minipops kid, and Trying to figure out what time signature a dog is barking in.

 

Not being able to hold direct eye contact is also a lower seeded team, but it has beat Creating a flowchart to assess snare rush potential and Laying in bed with all your synths.

Didn`t "Wearing headphones without listening to anything" win over "Listening to podcasts and audiobooks at speeds so fast you can barely understand a single word spoken"?

If small but still normal-sized leg guy doesn't make it into the finals then this vote is clearly rigged by the lame-stream media and I will refuse to accept the result.

Most IDM has to be the Microsoft AI teen personified into the small-legged chap put in a MRI scan.

THAT'S MY IDM.

I'm not usually a fan of nominating a specific video or image, but small but still normal sized-leg man is an exception.

Go "a video of a dude with small but still within the range or normal-sized legs jamming in Southbank on synths that are powered by a car battery, while people walk by with angry expressions and a single old bearded drunk man dances gleefully"! You can do it!
