I'm asking this, because I've gone to visit a few times (my sister lives on the outskirts), and that's what I've chosen to do as a career, but up here in hicktown, there's hardly any opportunity to get noticed. My sister has offered to act as liaison, but would it be best if I just left here for the city and get set up down there, maybe live with sis for the first couple years? Or should I just stick up here and try to get noticed where I am now?

Default When you say "do as a career"

What do you mean? DJ? Musician? Club owner?

I have to say that I'm "too old" to like Electronica but I still do. Because of that age, I don't know the scene. Suggestion: go to meetup.com and investigate/join NYC-based groups around that as an interest.

Honestly trance/techno died in the city after the 90s. There's people who still listen, and many of those who are into electronica have moved past trance, most are on house now, I'm into DnB, Jungle and Dubstep, and it seems these days that the big names are either in Europe (particularly Britain and France) or on the west cost, particularly L.A.

go to Rhythmism.com and go to the forums. Best resource for EDM in NYC. And the scene is very healthy and vibrant here til this day.

There is still a Trance/techno scene in nyc but its not as big as it use to be espicially with all sorts of British, Spaniards and other Europeans that move and live in this city, I assumed that the Trance scene should have been huge but its not. Lots of New Yorkers club to throwback music such as freestyle and house music and dance to remixed pop music such as lasko and dj sammy, and lets not also forget hip hop. THe Trance scene is pretty big in UK, Spain, France, Holland and Germany, if your into Trance Europe is the place to be. I so wanna go to Ibiza. Dont worry Tiesto and Armin Van Buren always spin in NYC from time to time!

I don't think Trance music goes well with NYC. The sound just doesn't go well with the roughness and pace of NYC. It has to die. However, House fits nicely with the concrete environment.

I have been into trance since 1999 and it's still very strong in LA and SF until I move to NYC a couple of years ago, and it's dead. I remembered God's Kitchen and Crobar back into 2003. Good ole days in NYC.

Tiesto and PVD spin there every year, so there are some really hardcore fans still.

I've always wondered what the trance/techno/electronic/house music scene is like in NY.

Seems like the centers of that scene in the US are in Miami, NY, San Francisco, and Los Angeles.
