What’s the music scene like in Paris?

There is an incredible scene here in Paris nowadays; Very classy and underground. In Paris, people follow the clubs reputation more than the actual parties. By the way, a new club called The Key is opening this weekend, it is anticipated to be the greatest hot spot for underground house music. I’m throwing my first party there next weekend called Hood Trip.
