NEXUS NEW YEARS EVE EXTRAVAGANZA
dec 31st New Years Eve
6 years ago in the unlikely location of an upstairs warehouse turned boxing ring, a tradition began. That tradition is one family, love, music, and celebration. From that humble origin, Nexus has evolved into an event that incorporates the best in music, art, and expression that Los Angeles has to offer.
This year, the tradition continues as Ninja Skillz Music, Project Alma, and The Cruz Coalition team up to bring you one of the most exciting events that we have ever put together. Those of you who remember the Nexus location from 2 years ago know exactly what we are talking about. Fully permitted till 4am, full bar, an amazing lineup, and YOU. Because lets face it, YOU are the ones that make this a tradition. So join us once again as we cast out the old and welcome the new with the open heart that makes our community great and with the love that makes Nexus a tradition.

The Return of Flammable Liquid
L.A.’s Original After Hours Party
Saturday, September 24th, 2011
This Saturday night, September 24th, is the 20 year regathering of the legendary Flammable Liquid, which was the first of its kind L.A. underground after hours party during the early 1990s. Read more about my personal experiences from those early years below.
A little history about Flammable Liquid:
Flam was born in early 1991 during the nascent L.A. underground party scene. Being an insider from the starting gate, I was fortunate to have been able to contribute to the formation of the local underground scene in some small way (which ultimately ended up leading me to become the L.A. Burning Man regional director years later). The experience was extraordinary and changed my life forever.
The Underground as Secret Society:
In those early years, being part of the underground was kind of like being a member of a secret society. Not many people knew about it, but enough to ensure that there were enough bodies to make it fantastic. The underground was the only place where you could find the kind of electronic dance and house music which is now ubiquitous and seemingly inescapable. There was no electronic dance music available at the record stores. You couldn’t find it on any radio station. It’s as though it didn’t exist. Except it did. Big time. But only within this hidden, secret world. If felt incredibly special and unique to be involved in this vibrant, exciting, hedonistic underworld, raging right under the noses of an unsuspecting mainstream, commercialized world. In discovering this world, I had found my people…
Dance Floor Catharsis:
Of all the events in those early years that I was either directly or indirectly involved with, or simply a party-goer, Flammable Liquid was one of the most memorable. Flam was the first of its kind after hours party in Los Angeles. It started at 3:00am on Sunday morning and went until people left, sometimes well into Sunday afternoon. It was epic. People were tribal dancing with streams of tears running down their faces. Total catharsis on the dance floor and good, good vibes. Always held in a new location almost every Sunday. Usually totally illegal (almost all underground parties in the early years were illegal). No permits. No authorization. Complete renegade party production. Living on the edge and living large. It was an exciting way to live. Without Flammable Liquid’s early influence on things to come, the Los Angeles After Hours Party Scene might not have been as cool as it was.
Flammable Liquid went on from early in 1991, and ended in September 1992. Years that I will never forget.
Now… flash-forward 20 years…. Baba Lou (who is the founder of Flammable, who was only 20 years old when he started it) and co-founder DJ Doc Martin, have gotten back together with their old colleagues to have one more raging one-off. The 20 year regathering of Flammable Liquid.
Kick Ass DJ Line Up!

David Starfire is a producer, composer, multi-instrumentalist and DJ based in Los Angeles and San Francisco. His production style is eclectic, fusing world music with dance and hip hop and everything in between. He’s signed to Six Degrees records (The Orb, Michael Franti) and has performed at major festivals across North America.

* EL PAPACHANGO *
Half papa, half monkey, really means Universe! Diego Novoa aka El Papachango grew up in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where he began his career as sound engineer and dj, tinkering around with speakers and amps at the ripe age of fifteen.
They call him El Papachango because he mixes from a diverse palette of electro, ragga, breaks, and hip-hop, creating a musical journey that has Universal appeal: sassy, playful, suave, and sometimes downright naughty, but always with a spicy Latin flavor.
* SAQI *
The Portland-based artist saQi is a classically trained composer, producer and trumpet player. Drawing his name from the Sufi title for a mystic muse, saQi creates eclectic electronica that maintains a balance between organic and synthesized sound. His live sets rock the dance floor while maintaining a grace and musical depth to engage the listener. The music is never limited by genre, tempo or any other stylistic elements. Allegiance to the creative flow and its truest expression thereof is saQi’s manifesto.
