Insomniac Launches New Underground Brand “Factory 93”


Debut Warehouse Show Takes Place in Downtown Los Angeles with Hot Since 82, Sante, Sidney Charles and Doc Martin

Insomniac announces a return to its underground roots with the launch of the new brand, Factory 93. The brand will be dedicated to nurturing techno, deep house, tech house and the unique vibe of warehouse culture in Los Angeles. Join us this May in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles for an incredible underground journey, created by the cultivators of the underground in the early 90’s.

“I’ve loved warehouse parties since the day I walked into one as a youngster,” said Pasquale Rotella, Founder and CEO of Insomniac. “The way the bass rattles the metal and reverberates through the walls, the condensation that forms on the ceiling from all the heat and energy in the room. Those experiences changed my life and made me want to devote my life to dance music. I couldn’t be more excited to go back to my roots with Factory 93. It’s a project the whole Insomniac crew is extremely passionate about.”

Factory 93 will debut May 21 with ‘Knee Deep in Los Angeles’, featuring Hot Since 82 (3-hour extended set), showcasing his Knee Deep label with Santé b2b Sidney Charles, and special guest Doc Martin. Tickets for the premiere show will go on sale Friday, April 8 at 12 PM PT at

“I love playing in LA, there’s such an exciting buzz around new underground music,” said Hot Since 82’s Daley Padley. “It’s an honor to host Knee Deep In Los Angeles at the opening of this new warehouse space downtown!”

The very first Insomniac event series began in 1993, aptly named “Insomniac.” Every Friday in Los Angeles, hundreds of people would come together to celebrate the underground; it’s rich culture and enthralling music. Factory 93 will channel the energy of Insomniac’s earliest gatherings for incredible experiences – centered by a true appreciation and understanding of the origins of the underground.
