Electronic effects can also be integrated with other musical instruments like piano, guitar or drums, etc. Nowadays, electronic music is one of the most popular forms of music played at party clubs around the globe.

Electronic music is typically composed using instruments like synthesisers and samplers instead of analogue musical instruments. It primarily comprises heavily rhythmic sounds and beats that are usually played in a loop over a fluctuating bass line. 

Music is an important and elemental part of our social lives. It deeply influences our mood and behaviour at a particular instant. Not only does listening to music bring us pleasure and joy, but it also helps us keep our creative juices flowing, as we pay attention to the details, making us more productive and creative. It also boosts our memory. Music strengthens our bond and connection with other people, especially the community, and helps us understand how we feel.

Electronic music is said to ‘touch the soul’. A point of fascination with electronic music that distinguishes it from other forms of music is the ability to induce emotions without vocals. Compared to vocal-based music like rap, rock, or pop, electronic music does not force any thoughts on you but rather allows you to feed your own emotion and imagination. 

Not all kinds of electronic music are the same. Like in every other genre of music, electronic music has some subgenres, which range from deep, emotional music to energetic explosive ones for every mood.

If you are new to the genre of electronic music altogether, it may get difficult for you to figure out the kind of music you would enjoy listening to. Some people enjoy tracks that have a deep beat of bass, while others relish the kind that includes higher notes and overall pitch. The best way for you to figure out the electronic music that suits you is to explore as much as you can.
