The votes have been tallied.

And the result was a tie!

But there can't be a tie. This is Nur Ein. Only One. So, I made a call. Not just a judgment call but a call...

I reached out to an impartial third party, someone who had never heard Stacking Theory or Vom Vorton before and gave them the songs and asked which they liked more.

Who was this impartial 3rd party? I was very fortunate to get the amazing St. Lenox to take a little time out of his busy schedule (see, this Rolling Stone article: https://www.rollingstone.com/music/musi ... w-1193339/) to listen to the final two songs and give his vote.

Andrew commends both artists, finding it "impressive" that you made those songs in 7 days.

In the end, there can only be one. And the winner of this year's Nur Ein, the closest contest yet is...

VOM VORTON

Congratulations on being the winner of the 17th Nur Ein!!!!!!
