Yeah seattle is a great place for electronic music, its the place where i fell in love with dance music.A great place to start is with the free party scene. These are free events held outdoors in the city, or better yet, in the woods or on the beach. The people involved with this stuff are hardcore funloving party people. do a search on northwest raves or raverbooks.com. groovinkim has a site that is great for finding free parties. there are great record shops on broad st. and in the university district. In gastown is where you will find good record shops in vancouver B.C. a place you must visit at least once.so good luck to you.
