[ELECTRONIC/DANCE] Maybe DJ Holographic’s biggest success so far is as a resident DJ for Bak Dør, a queer afterhours party held in her hometown of Detroit that bills itself as a party for “misfits who don’t want to be classified.” These, in this writer’s humble opinion, are the best types of parties. As DJ, Holographic spins a jackin’ mix of house, deep house, techno, nu-disco, and funk with a focus on connecting the dots and paying respects to those who’ve come before her. Her skills and taste—which she says she developed while listening to her parent’s Chaka Khan records as a kid—have set her on a journey that has expanded worldwide. Since November she has played many of the world’s most sacred house and techno meccas including Detroit, Chicago, New York, and Berlin and this Friday, February 16 she’ll make her way to the Gypsy Parlor on Buffalo’s West Side for an all nighter. The party is hosted by DJ Rufus Gibson who’ll open with a set of deep house and techno. So if what you seek is to #getmessyanddanceallnight, then you’ve come to the right place.
