Saturday, June 30th 2012 the most anticipated event of the summer is here “No-Doz”! It’s time to break out your old-school dancing gear, dig through your DJ mix tape collection, and revisit where it all began for the L.A. underground warehouse scene. No-Doz, the legendary L.A. underground after-hours is returning once again, celebrating its 20 Year Anniversary. This will be an unforgettable evening, featuring all the resident & guest DJ’s who used to tear-up the turntables every single weekend until the sun came up. For those of you who were there back in 1992, you already know what to expect from this event and for the newer generation this will be an enlightening history lesson.
No-Doz was originally created by Ron D Core & Dr. Freecloud’s back in 1992. A weekly after-hours giving the scene another option going from the larger events and extending everyone’s night of partying until sunrise. Small secret warehouses, lofts, and discrete nightclubs were used and pocket sized photocopied flyers were handed out at all the parties. Offering no more than a phone number to call which gave you a map point to check in and then proceed to the party. Ron D Core, DJ Dan & all the rest of the DJ’s showed up at random times to spin records for a jam packed warehouse full of sweaty partygoers.

Fast forward to the present, all the original DJ’s that played back in 1992 for No-Doz will be playing together once again!! Dr. Freecloud’s is excited to bring you the No-Doz 20 Year Reunion on June 30th at the fully restored and remodeled Fox Theater in Pomona. The DJ’s performing are: Ron D Core, DJ Dan, Barry Weaver, R.A.W., DJ Robin, Mellinfunk, Fester, E-Zone, Oscar Da Grouch, Machete, CRS?, Mordrum, APX-1, Slyten & Remo. All DJ’s will be spinning 100% vinyl sets playing all your favorite early 1990’s jams! We look forward to seeing everyone from the oldschool to the new generation at No-Doz, it’s time to be a part of EDM history!
