Does electro house have meodies or chords?

Some electro house sounds like they have just chords orjust melodies. Am i going crazy ? lol

Well, if you think about it, even hard techno uses melodies and even some chords progression, that’s somehow the essence of music, whatever genre it is. That said, in many electronic music productions, melodies and what feels like complex chords progression are often rather simple single notes melodies patterns, but when you start to layer instruments, modulate your synth sounds with filters, LFO and add effects like delays, chorus…etc, it will feel like much more complex musical arrangement to the listener.

But again, our ears & mind needs something memorable to really dig a song, melodic elements are therefore very important, even if very minimal like an arpeggio or pluck sound sequence in a track.

true , thank you.
