Seria Star - Saturday in San Diego

Sep 18 2014 12:00 am

Hey Ninjas (and pirates, gypsies, clowns, and other freaky folk out there). It's been awhile! I took a trip down to Spain and Portugal this summer and have come back reinvigorated and re-inspired. Both Ibiza and the Boom Festival were awesome, and its great to see how people across the pond do things.

So, I am totally stoked to play in San Diego again after a bit of a hiatus! Seria Star is always a fun night full of belly dance and awesome beats, so come on out, dust yourself off and bring your friends!

-Mark Zabala

As we wave goodbye to the beautiful summer and welcome back travelers and their tales of amazing adventures, Seria Star is bringing in some stellar talent to amplify the night!! New talent is going to be seen early in the night as we have some musical masters showcasing different style, as well as beautiful dancers bringing new fusion. Mark Zabala, Adia Break and Shakti Bliss create a lineup that will help you own the groove... and groove matters.

TBTN and BurnLA present: The Plunge ~ A Sweaty Summer Kickoff

Jun 28 2013 9:00 pm

TBTN Productions and BurnLA proudly present:

(A sweaty summer kickoff)

TBTN is back with its first installment of the summer. We're teaming up with BurnLA to kick off the season with a prime selection of your favorite selectors representing Chi City, the Bay, and of course all over LA.

On the bill for the night are:

J*LABS (The Good Vibe, Black 22s, LA)
J*Labs’ propensity to “get bored easily” means that she’s constantly digging around looking for new tracks. She’s quickly made her mark on the electronic music scene in LA and has been venturing further and further away from home as poor under-shaken booties everywhere in need of liberation beckon her forth. No two sets are the same and you never know what might happen. One thing that you can definitely count on is that the room is gonna be moving! She’s also a member of Black 22s, a dynamic new tag team project consisting of herself and Lou E. Bagels. BLACK 22S @ LIB THIS YEAR!

KIMBA (Opel, Delta Nine, SF)
Kimba is a fresh face behind the decks and has been bringing a storm of energy to her DJ career since it took flight in 2010. Kimba has graced the decks with her warrior-like presence throughout California from her home in San Francisco to San Diego, Los Angeles, Seattle, Lake Tahoe and Reno. Kimba brings a sound best described as Elegant Warrior Breaks, Drum&Bass & Techno ~ a fusion of Sweet and Heavy sounds programmed to take you on a journey through every mix. She brings deep dark basslines intertwined with melodic and musical themes to touch a cord in every dancer.

CRINGER (Dubfront Records, LA/Chicago)
As the Dubfront Records Banner-man and Chicago Dubstep representative, Cringer has been lacing beats for over 14 years. With music ranging from Deep & Dark to Ghetto Anthems to straight Boogie Tunes, Cringer steps up with a fat sack of dubplate pressure and sub-cabinet assaulting original work. With banging releases on his own Dubfront Records imprint as well as forthcoming releases on Rogue Dubs and Adversion Recordings, It's no wonder Cringer has been top-billing parties nationwide like LA's premiere dubstep weekly "Pure Filth" and the dubstep vs. ragga jungle soundclash "Bring tha Ruckus". Come catch The Cringer in action and learn the true definition of "Bass-Pressure"

ORA (Chicks with Decks, LA)
Ora, part of Chicks with Decks, has been rocking beats all over LA for many years. Her sexy breaks blend with her dubbed out breakdowns to take you on a sonic journey of grimey and bassed out aural bliss.

HYJYNX (BurnLA, NinjaSkillz, LA)
HYJYNX has been moving souls and blowing minds for over the past decade as a founding member of Ninja Skillz Music in Los Angeles. His style is an ever evolving blend of uplifting “swing” house, progressive breaks, dirty electro, techno/tech house, and some dub/bass on occasion. This Buckeye native has performed at events ranging from Ohio to Black Rock City and all the way down to Mexico; at festivals all over Southern California; and in countless warehouses, lofts, art galleries, and clubs. With HYJYNX at the helm, every set is an epic adventure across the globe, bridging the gap between the past and the future!

BK WILLY (TBTN Productions, LA)
BK Willy is the founder and front man of Take Back the Night Productions.
His slamming breakbeats, liquid drum and bass, and funky glitch hop sets will leave any dancer sweaty and satisfied.



Unique Sequence

Grinzy (House of Hooligans)

The Rebirth of AREA 33


We’re back and we are on a mission.

To create a private membership cultural community center for intelligent gatherings of Nuvos, the growing intellectual class of conscious creatives who are dedicated to creating the new.

Yep, we’re talking about you.
We want to give you critical information on how to become a member of the first Nuvo High Concept Event Space For Intelligent Nightlife, the new AREA 33.

To give you your first contact with this new form of intelligent nightlife, we are touching down for one night only at:

5176 Santa Monica Blvd. Hollywood, CA 90029

Consider this your first acclimation of what’s to come.
Something alien to the earthly party scene and the beginning of something truly transcendent.

So welcome home Nuvos.
Join us for this evolutionary event and celebrate this exciting first step towards a legal after hours private membership cultural community center for intelligent nightlife.

Already on board to play for you in 2 music areas are:

Ticket Link:


Now that Agua Dulce is experiencing wildfires, and the fire danger is rated as "extreme", we and the authorities both feel that it would be too dangerous to host our event at our original location.

We have chosen to move our event to tribal lands in Apple Valley.

Our new location is 100 percent confirmed and contracted. We have camping for at least 1500 people and have two areas for sound, with music extended to 3am. We are pleased to now have the ability to host fire performers. There is also a quiet camping option, and the site features multiple faucets with spring fed water.

BOOMTOWN is now a family friendly event -- kids under 12 are free, minors 13-17 must be accompanied by an adult and purchase a regular ticket.

Apple Valley is located 90 minutes northeast of Los Angeles, conveniently located off the 15 freeway.

Alcohol is permitted, but will not be sold on site.
