One thing is clear from even a cursory tour of Southland nightclubs: The vast majority of DJs are dudes, not ladies. To Clay Young, a DJ who spins records at UC Irvine's KUCI as well as at parties and small clubs, that was an injustice. In January, he and a group of Orange County women took action and created "The Night of the All-Girl DJ," a monthly Saturday club at Costa Mesa's Detroit Bar. "Because every night is an all-male DJ night," says Young, 33.

It sounds like a movie script. Nearly 10,000 dance music fans overrun the Westin Bonaventure Hotel, turning the downtown L.A. locale into a giant nightclub on New Year's Eve. Inside the enormous California Ballroom, DJ Paul Oakenfold spins his signature trance grooves for a few thousand fans. In the lobby, video screens show Oakey's performance to the overflow while lasers flash overhead. It is not a scene from the latest rave flick, though.

Halfway through his set at Saturday's Audiotistic show, rapper Nas led the crowd in an anti-President Bush chant. Whatever your feelings about his politics, you have to respect the fact that at least the New Yorker had something to say beyond "where my ladies at?" But one wouldn't expect anything less at Audiotistic, the self-proclaimed "future sound festival."

Prior to Saturday's well-organized Electric Daisy Carnival, an 11 1/2-hour event at Hansen Dam Recreation Park, promoters wondered how local ravers would respond to an afternoon event. Some of the biggest names for Electric Daisy Carnival, including Carl Craig, Mark Farina, Christopher Lawrence, Donald Glaude and the Dub Pistols (playing live), were scheduled to go on after dusk. But the vast majority of the show, which began at noon, would be under the sun.

A set of new blue doors on Hollywood Boulevard opens to Tinseltown's largest nightclub, a New York-meets-Miami-style dance hall where revelers can party in a soaring loft interior with exposed red brick and steel -- or retreat to cozy, blue-glass towers or a sexy orange room for intimacy and seclusion.

And clubs cater to the whim of a film industry more concerned with the guest list than the playlist. L.A. does have dance music leaders--record labels (Quango, Moonshine), media (Groove Radio, 103.
