I roll with house, trance, eurodance, and synthpop as my favorites.

I couldn't say. It all depends on my mood really.

For me it's all about chillout and psytrance. Though I have been enjoying me some electro-house lately. I never really got into hardcore or gabber or a lot of types of electronic music really, I'm way more into psychedelic and experimental electronic stuff.

Techno, though I pretty much have no idea how to define most EDM.

I've been digging Dubstep and Drum & Bass lately.

I love Balearic Chillout- Afterlife, Chris Coco and Jose Padilla etc but then I do love Funky House when I'm in the mood but there are only great tracks and not outstanding artists.

Drum N Bass is one of my favourite genres but again the lack of pure quality albums limits the genre. You hear the odd outstanding track but rarely a full album. Calyx and Teebee released Anatomy a couple of years back which was decent Drum N Bass and the master LTJ Bukem has some great tracks out there but I haven't heard a top quality DnB album for a long while.

Danny Byrd's 'Weird Science' album is solid enough but very commercial too.

I would kill for a decent Breakbeat album and the only team that float my boat these days (apart from Prodigy) are Stanton Warriors and they have been quite lately.

I hear ya on all that.
Best you'll get most of the time are albums that are actually just DJ mixes from the artist.
That's typical with Drum & Bass and Breaks though, considering the market it's aimed at. I personally don't really mind not having albums of either genre. Having a catalog of bangin' singles from the artist is just as good.

It's taking me awhile to get used to finding music by the track, vice the album. But that seems to be how most of the best electronic tracks are released, so I'm ok with it.

For awhile it was just the opposite for me! That's probably why I rarely scrobble whole albums. I tend to just go by song.

Although the upside to electronic music is that there a lot of free download sites dedicated to it so finding brand, brand new music is quite easy. A lot of the sites like Beatport and Trackitdown have a good portion, but not everything.
