Counterpoint in Edm

Do not forget counterpoint I know counterpoint is overlooked in edm but ,if done right is quite effective as you will see from my example below. Basically all you need to do to get started is to write 2 melodies going in two different directions in the same key basically  contrary motion. Do not worry about falling on the same pitch or anything just experiment until you get something that gels then bounce off it. For instance start your song with 2 melodies in 2 instruments playing the same time,then bring in your main instrument in a new melody in same key new instrument but later on in this melody bring back one of the earlier melodies to bring back the counter point.
