I've seen these DJs live many times: Tiesto, Deep Dish, Oakenfold, Roger Sanchez, Dekoze, Manzone & Strong, Armin van Buuren, Hed Kandi... and many smaller ones...

My favorite has been Deep Dish
Dekoze is very tribal and dark so you have to be in the mood for that, but he's very intense.
Oakenfold is just a great classic of course
Tiesto (I didn't like as much as I thought I would for some reason!)

If you like house music, there are some great annual music festivals to check out (if you haven't already) that I would highly recommend (there's one in Miami every March, and BPM in playa del carmen every January).

And if you're really ready for the complete experience, then head to Ibiza... Just be warned, in the larger clubs, bottles of water cost $20 US. LOL

Right back at ya Lunchbox man & Dancing_Doll.

I love Tiesto, Sanchez, Hernan Cattaneo, Paul Oakenfold, and a few of Aussies : Destyn Masiello, Bexta and Anthony Papa. But the greatest of them all is, in my opinion, the master : James Zabiela !

Zabiela's
Utilities is a masterpiece.

There are 3 festival shows I would love to catch...

Sensation white & black
Qlimax
Defcon.

I tend to gravitate towards Hardstyle and Hard Trance, However, My Top Djs are:
Tiesto
Van Dyk
Okenfold
Van Buuren
Gabriel and Dresden

When I can, I prefer to drive long distances rather than fly. I just love seeing what is. Last year I went out to Death Valley to hike form Shorty's well, -250 feet below sea level to telescope peak 11,049 feet above the valley. The drive was close to 1000 miles each way. I have satellite radio in my vehicle so I surf the musical landscpaes. I hit gold on this trip. I found dance/trance/electronic/etc.

The first think I heard was a Tiesto Sarah McLachlan remix that got me hooked. After hours of listening to different artists I became a convert.

I just love Tiesto, Oakenfold, Van Dyk, so much so I purchased loops for the garage band program I have on my iBook. Then intent is to create a trance background for my poetry. I don't know if it will work or not but what the hell it is worth a try. I suck at both right now, the jury is not in but I think eventually I will be able to do OK.

Chemical Brothers
Crystal Method
Tiesto
Doll turned me onto Dekoze last night in the chat room.
I favor Breaks, Big Beat, and Electro House.

Here are some links for online enjoyment, if you don't already have them. I like to start one up when I'm cruising Lush:

Now start filling up your profile with vids and playlists so we can share. thumbright

Rocco, check out www.myspace.com/djaddy when you get a chance. He's another amazing DJ from Toronto's extensive underground scene. He has a playlist of his mixes available there.

I checked playlist.com but unfortunately there is no way to upload your own music. Which is too bad, because I have a nice collection of CDs that can't be found anywhere on the net/stores from the likes of DJAddy, Dekoze, SydneyBlu, Manzone & Strong and DJ Undercover...

They have some great sounds!

yummy, a topic 4 me:)
I love electronic music. I even mix and broadcast sometimes (not lately as I had to sell my equipment when moving abroad:( )
Progressive, tech and electro are my faves and I could mention thousands of names along with the ones you just said. Maybe, just one I really really love. He is my local citizen, seen him zillion times, and he IS THE BEST. Nick Warren is the man.
btw I am going to Ibiza for the closing parties this year and I live on Di.fm.

OK... purists will probably hate this... but if you want to hear something different...

This guy is a very cool local talent (and friend) that plays in and around North America and has been very popular the last couple of years doing Spring Break shows in Cancun, Acapulco etc. He plays electric guitar and jams with well known house and trance tunes... He really brings down the house.. Kind of like synthesizing rock and house...
