Insomniac Presents: Nova SD (formerly Omnia)

Insomniac Events announced that they are acquiring the formerly known Omnia Night Club in the historic Gaslamp district in downtown San Diego. The venue is set to re open this month as NOVA SD and already has a slew of talent lined up for the grand opening.

The venue which consists of a 22,000 square foot dance floor will feature an expanded main dance floor along with expansion to the already immaculate sound and visual production. With more room to dance, the venue addressed one of its previous owners main problems that existed at Omnia. If you’ve been there before, then you know exactly what I’m talking about. Hopefully Pascuale addresses some of the other issues that existed the venue previously too. The venue does (or at least did) have an amazing rooftop to enjoy the San Diego nights.

Pasquale Rotella, CEO of Insomniac has a minority partner with the Tao Group Hospitality so you know they are going to be doing some cool things inside the venue. The grand opening weekend is set for February 25th/26th and it features RL Grime and Deadmau5 respectively.

NovaSD will be an interesting splash in the San Diego electronic music pond. It’s the first time that Insomniac has expanded to owning a venue and it will be interesting to see how this affects the rest of the scene. A scene might I add that has been thriving for years with out them and one that has thrived through the pandemic era. San Diego has one of the most abundant cities if you are interested in electronic music. From clubs, to festivals, to undergrounds, local events & true raves, there is something for everyone.

None the less, it will be very exciting when the venue opens later this month.

The current schedule of NOVA SD events include:

● Friday, February 25 – RL Grime
● Saturday, February 26 – deadmau5
● Friday, March 4 – Jauz
● Saturday, March 5 – Tiësto
● Friday, March 11 – Illenium

Rezz – Something Wrong Here EP

If you have never had a chance to listen to Rezz, then you are truly about to discover one of the future stars of the dance music community. I use the term future, but realistically she has already made a big splash on the scene. I got my first taste of Rezz discovering new music before Shambhala music festival in Canada.

Her new EP, “Something Wrong Here,” has just been released on Deadmau5’s record label Mau5trap. Dubbed as Deadmau5’s prodigy, she has been storming the scene over the last year playing various clubs & festivals. Her mid tempo, bass driven style makes you want to move to her beat no matter what space you are in. If you get a chance to go see Rezz play, I highly recommend it.
