Myself and a mate are both DJs and totally into our deep house & electro (See Justice, Simian Mobile Disco, SebastiAn).
We all know Paris is a hotbed for electronic dance music production lately BUT where is good to go in terms of gigs / clubs for this sort of music?
We'll be arriving in Amsterdam first so ideally a night out here would get the trip off to a good start.
Berghain/panorama bar in berlin is awesome. Panorama plays house and electro, while berghain plays more aggressive techno. Its in the same building.
Tresor in berlin is also great, plays house and electro every now and then, but mostly purist techno. Best club i've been to even though i dont really fancy techno all that much.
Ibiza is of course great, but you probably know that. When it comes to gigs and so on no place else can even compare.

Paris is of course great. I just moved from Aix en Provence in southern France and electo is all the rage there. some world class Dj's play in this smaller town because its a very hip, bourgeoise city that is very on top of all things cool. I would check out Studio 88, Mistral, PLIT, and Divino. La Maronaise in Marseille is a great place too, but it's only open during the summer season.

Yeah's recommendations in Berlin are defintely the place to go. Additionaly you could check out Watergate or 103, they often have great DJs playing there.
