ill be the first to admit that montreal has the better vibe & friendlier people (& possibly better clubbing drugs)...but thats not what the scene is all about...theres loads of factors that make a scene as a whole.
1. perhaps the main one, i feel the djs in toronto are some of the best, & in my eyes, its not even close...this is no disrespect to the djs there...there are some great ones including brad, sultan, miche etc...but in general & in numbers...no competition. toronto wins hands down in practically every genre of music.
2. the different genres of music we have isnt even close...almost nowhere in north america can u go where there are breaks parties, prog parties, garage parties, dnb parties, techno parties, etc, etc, all in one night & all busy. this simply doesnt happen in other cities.
3. music outlets (although im biased) are not even close. the record shops here are much better than the record shops there from my experience...as a whole, u can get any type of music here & it will be cutting edge...good luck finding that in montreal. & better music helps equate to better djs...simple.
the list goes on & on but i think ill leave it at that. but my point is, a scene is revolved around more than just drugs & vibe.
