All the best.
Just would have said the same, but because of the limited budget a pair of AX5 might be fine.
And yes, the ADAM's ARE valid for electronic music (more than most others) because of their extreme high frequency emphasis. With electronic music, digital noise will occur and this is best recognized by such precise high frequency speakers used in the ADAM's (and the EVE's too
Honestly the ADAM's have their problems too of course, and for dance they should (with AX5 "must") be accompaigned by a sub woover with precise bass monitoring. For some guys headphones are another help.
If you have the money, look for the ADAM A77X. It will meet most cases of mixing without a sub woofer, because of it's second bass driver. Best and loved are the S3X. No woofer needed and best bass image is available.
