Dragon Lounge: future jungle birthday party
DJ Arkon celebrates his birthday with a U.K. invasion at the Kava Lounge.
Dragon Lounge, one of San Diego’s longest-running electronic dance music monthlies held at the Kava Lounge, garnered international attention over the last year for their future jungle showcases.
“This sub-genre is a combination of break beats and jungle that resurrects the old school ‘90s vibe, but also introduces the future sounds of the post-dubstep era. You will hear jungle or trance anthem samples that are nostalgic from the days of underground warehouses before the evolution of drum n bass. Some producers rely on sampling the traditional side of reggae or ragga dubs, while others infuse the rolling bass lines with more of an Amen progressive feel,” says DJ and Dragon Lounge curator Aaron 'Arkon' Hastings.
On Sunday, April 28, Arkon celebrates his birthday with a British invasion featuring three massive headliners on the Bad Habit Muzik Tour.
Bad Habit - UK/ Label boss of Bad Habit Muzik / DJ / Producer
Digitally Mashed - UK/ Bad Habit & Top Drawer Digital DJ
