Chicago was probably the ultimate city for the dance music I liked 10 years ago (think Eurodance/trance). Think DJ Markski.

Depends what you mean by electronic music though. My girlfriend's brother is a big EDM fan and he goes to concerts and shows literally every weekend. And on holidays NYC has several big shows with big name stars in that music genre. I can't see any other city in the US with that big of a scene, because basically EVERY artist foreign or domestic plays in NY. Just FYI, I'd say most EDM concerts are actually in Brooklyn nowadays, not in Manhattan. I'd say its a 70/30 split. If you are talking about techno and stuff I can see LA or Miami having better scene than NYC.

If you mean downtempo, electronica, and trip-hop, I would have to go with Washington DC, the hometown of Thievery Corporation, Thunderball, and the ESL record label!
This.

Moombahton and Moombahcore (subgenre of Moombahton) have garnered an impressive international following since they've been created from DC around 2009/2010. Moombahton is a House fusion subgenre that blends the styles of Electro House, Reggaeton, and Trap (Hip Hop subgenre).

It's off-shoot subgenre Moombahcore incorporates elements of Dutch House, Gabber, Breakbeat, Techstep, Dubstep, and Wobble Bass along with the elements that form the backbone of its mother sound, Moombahton.

Here's an example of the two House music subgenres respectively:

Great mix I actually listen to the first one video during my workouts. I'm a new fan of the Moombah genre.
