    What does everyone think the best house music scenes are currently around the world? Let's say top 5 or 10 cities?

    Might have to plan some future travels around some recommendations. :)

    I don't know about that however electronic music is evolving towards improved song structure and composition. Instead of style. It could very well be a just an impressive song that starts off downtempo that builds up to a house style, or dancefloor that has electro break beat breakdowns and RNB back up vocal elements and a Beck feature with a guitar and harmonica. lol, don't forget your cowboy hat.

    i'm struggling with this question...what defines a "good" house scene? Is it the clubs? The residencies? The artists? There are many places where the "scene" is extraordinary only for a short-lived period of time. What kind of house are we talking about?

    Its all about the moment when it comes to house, I'm going back but I remember the house music that struck me at first in Toronto was when Matt C was spinning hiphouse, which had funky elements in it. That was around the same time that trip hop was doing really well...from there I ventured more into a garage style that then eventually turned into speed garage, which I'm sure a lot of the older guys remember. Then came in a more filtered style of disco house which evolved into electro house after the whole chicago booty and LA hard house period.

    while I didnt ask the original question...
    I'd define "good scene" as anywhere that actually has a scene with all 3 of the following: good clubs (and a variety to choose from), good dj's (not neccesarily residents, but headliners coming through on the regular), and attendance (lots of people who come to party and bring the "vibe").

    I wouldn't put Paris on that list
    For shoe-shopping yes
    For house music? Yes, there are the one offs, but a thriving ongoing variety? Not so much (plenty of crap music too).

    in no particular order (some from personal experience, some from hearsay):

    - NYC
    - London
    - Manchester
    - Tokyo
    - Bogota
    - Beirut
    - Dubai
    - Naples (Italy, not FL)
    - Singapore
    - Shanghai

    Toronto needs a mention just b/c we're so spoiled.
