To Danny: Wow, looks like things are going well for the Texas cities with all the growth and the relatively good economy, becoming more liberal/democratic, more urban amenities related things etc. Thats good!

So you are originally from Chicago, lived in Singapore as a kid, and are going to college in Austin, Texas currently?

Seattle's weather can be great most of the time. Since I was here in February 2010, the only time I didnt like/enjoy the weather was Late May-Early June, and some of Late June-Early July but most of the time I enjoy the weather here. I dont think its as bas as some people say it is, and there actually are plenty of Seattle weather lovers that exist. I think Im somewhere in the middle with that. I like the weather here a lot of the time but like NYC-Boston weather, San Francisco bay area, and Hawaii weather more.

Its interesting how you never visited Seattle but seem to know so much about it. Thats how I feel about Chicago, Texas cities, etc. I never visited those places but feel like I know them well.

Boys Noize - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Houston also has spawned artists like Henry Chow who have wrecked havoc on the world wide Techno circuit.

RA: Henry Chow
I cant see how Houston can possibly touch Dallas' techno scene. Its not bad, but Dallas is one of the best in techno. That should be indisputable.

I live in Chicago, Houston, & Austin relatively through out the year.

Heres my schedule (factored with the traveling to other places):
August: Chicago (for the first half of the month) Austin (for the second half of the month, Going back home to Houston for every other weekend)
September: Austin (Going back home to Houston for every other weekend)
October: Austin (Going back home to Houston for every other weekend)
November: Austin (Going back home to Houston for every other weekend/Traveling to Bay Area, California for Thanksgiving with my parents)
December: Austin/Houston (When schools out, back to Houston, then family vacation after a few days to go to some other city in the country for Winter time)
January: Austin/Houston (First half of the month I am traveling with parents to other cities or something)
February: Austin (Going back home to Houston for every other weekend)
March: Austin (Going back home to Houston for every other weekend, Spring Break I normally travel to a place that friends and I can agree on visiting, normally we vote on it)
April: Austin (Going back home to Houston for every other weekend)
May: Chicago
June: Chicago
July: This is the month of the year that I do road trips with friends, otherwise Chicago

Austin = School, I live in downtown Austin
Houston = Home, I live in suburban Houston (Sugar Land)
Chicago = Home, I live in downtown Chicago

Dallas, San Antonio, & Fort Worth are all easy drives for me, so I put those into my schedule randomly on random weekends. In fact the weekend after next weekend my roommates and I are going to DFW, just to visit it again.

Yes they are becoming more politically liberal by the day.

My parents have been to Seattle twice, everyone in my family has, even my siblings have, but I haven't because I was in Chicago during the summer. Normally in the summer May-Early August when I'm in Chicago I'm without my family, they're in Houston at the time.

My parents like to travel, mostly because they have to do plenty of it for work, as consultants, so when an opportunity to see a new place comes up they want to take me and my brothers with them and get to see new places. Which is why I've seen as many places as I have, I guess traveling in general is something my family really loves doing.

Seattle tops my list of places I want to see, another being Minneapolis as well.

Seattle is becoming larger too, its developing quite fast, and its gaining more recognition for a west coast city, especially since their port activity has exponentially increased.

Please add your social security number, your mom's maiden name, your grandmother's maiden name, and where your parents were born?

It would also be nice if we can have some credit card numbers And a debit card number WITH your PIN. Thanks!

To this thread topic; the trance scene in BOTH LA and SF have been invaded by teeny boppers, so I don't go to many raves anymore. I was once into them when I was between 14-18, but the last rave I went to here in LA was TAO during New Years, and I felt weird being amongst kids who thought it was super cool to pop pills (and eventually overdose) and generally bother me.

Loveparade is in SF this October, but I don't think I'll go. I'd rather buy a 40 and listen to Mac Dre instead

It really depends on what type of scene you are into. I'm more of a hardstyle (IE DJ Luna from the Netherlands) and hardcore (IE Scott Brown) type of person nowadays, since I think I have some form of ADD which makes it impossible for me to listen to softer music. However, at EDC this year, many of my favorite artists were there (but I didn't go due to the reason above).

So I'd be the worst person to ask. Yeah.

Name me one Dallas Techno DJ who has broke out onto the national or international scene.

Answer: There is none.

I highly suggest you give Henry Chow from Houston a listen if you're into true UK Techno. He doesn't disappoint.

Maybe you're confusing EDM as a whole genre with Techno specifically? When I think Techno I automatically think of artists like Carl Cox & Joey Beltram.

I play guitar, bass, piano and a bit of drums.

Trance isn't music. It is electronic noise regardless of geography.

I'm not sure if the OP was speaking about the top 10 best and worst based on exposure or not, but I would say best (in no particular order):

Miami
New York
Chicago
Los Angeles
Seattle
Las Vegas
San Francisco
Dallas
Houston
Phoenix
DC
Austin
