Carl Craig has announced Detroit native and hotly-tipped selector DJ Holographic is next in-line for his prestigious ‘Detroit Love’ mix compilation series dropping on Planet E Communications. Following in the footsteps of predecessors like Stacey Pullen and Wajeed, being invited to mix vol.05 of the series is testament to DJ Holographic being one of Detroit’s most anticipated breakthrough DJ’s.
Born and raised in the Motor City’s deep musical legacy, Ariel Corley aka DJ Holographic is an ambassador for Detroit through and through. Having cut her teeth as a DJ in the local scene over the past decade DJ Holographic is admired for her versatility, eclecticism and impeccable taste. Ariel has firmly established herself as a staple of Detroit’s modern underground scene, a core member of the city’s LGBQT+ community and a devoted activist for local humanitarian causes – love for Detroit underpins every element of Ariel Corley’s life.
Released 16th April via Planet E and K7!, Detroit Love Vol.05 is packed to the brim with exclusive tracks hand-picked by DJ Holographic who takes the listener through a vibrant and flawlessly-mixed showcase of breakthrough artists, ones to watch, and long-established artists Ariel has a personal affiliation to. The mix was curated by DJ Holographic at the artist creative hub below Submerge Records in Detroit – home to labels such as Underground Resistance, Transmat, Red Planet, and Distorted Soul.
DJ Holographic’s ‘Detroit Love’ is a plunge pool of funkadelic dancefloor exploration gliding seamlessly through juiced-up vocal tracks and percussive club rattlers. Corley draws and releases energy with expert precision throughout, blending minimalistic acid-techno elements into astral electro-infused rhythm which provides luscious escapism and eyes-closed introspection.
Standout moments of aforementioned euphoria include DJ Holographic’s brand new single released today, ‘Faith In My Cup’. The track features luscious vocals from Detroit gospel choir trained singer/songwriter Apropos who recreates the lyrics from an unreleased Father John Misty song which holds huge sentimental weight for Ariel.
‘Faith In My Cup’ resonates with the listener on a deeper level and transports to the misty moments of peak time club elation we’ve all been yearning for – placing Apropos’ soul-bursting vocals on a pedestal of lucidity and ornate palette of house music decadence.
DJ Holographic’s career is rapidly gaining momentum in equal measure as an international DJ, producer and label-head. Last year Corley released her ‘Parallel Shifting’ EP with Alex Wilcox on her newly launched Detroit based imprint Hitchhiker which is going from strength to strength. Having already played some of the world’s most esteemed clubs and festivals on line-ups with Detroit heroes like Moodyman, DJ Stingray, Seth Troxler and Robert Hood – toured North America with The Blessed Madonna on her We Still Believe Tour, and laid down her first Resident Advisor Podcast, Detroit Love Vol.05 is the next milestone from one of the Motor City’s brightest future stars.
