Our clubs, if they play electronic, will either play commercialized stuff like Cascada or maybe House.
I'm not really into hardcore myself, but yeah, lots of great artists. But there are a lot of great american DJs too, Markus Schulz, Larry Tee, Sandy Rivera, Erick Morillo, Steve Aoki, Armand van Helden and I think Tiga is american too (or maybe canadian). And there are some very good festivals in Miami. But I guess we're spoiled here.

Yeah we've got Breakfast, DJ Eco, Sean Tyas (before he moved to Sweden), Redstar, Avenger, & George Acosta BUT you have tons and tons more. I kinda like it to be underground over here. If it got to be popular then everyone would listen to it and it just wouldn't be the same.

Uhuh, that's what killed house over here. It's so mainstream now that nothing original gets released and every party is the same with the same annoying crowd.

House tunes are immense. not so popular here. its mostly HTID, masters of hardcore etc over here. so Electro, techno, trance, house (my favourites) are really not that popular

Can I ask, what do you like about techno? It always sounds so monotonous and boring to me..

I actually hate the term techno. It makes it sound kind of nerdy. I prefer electronica, but even that covers a genre of music with hundreds of subgenres. I think you just need to explore it a little bit and you will find something you like. THIS thread is about trance...a kind of electronica that is monotonous to, well, put you in a trance. Go out to a club with an awesome dj, get some drinks in ya, and then tell me you don't like it. Usually that is when people are converted.

On the other side of electronica, listen to the album Campfire Headphase by Boards of Canada. It is experimental electronic, and it is quite honestly breathtakingly beautiful music. Check it out, there is really a lot to this kind of music.

No, no, no. You misunderstand. I know what electronica is, and I love it. People think Techno is a substitute for electronica when it is actually a subgenre. Richie Hawtin, Ricardo Villalobos, Dave Clarke, that kind of thing. And I'm trying to understand what people like about this particular subgenre. Btw, I think trance is the least monotonous electronica, the big buildups, the climaxes, I always see it as electronic classical music.
