Dj Holographic



DJ Holographic is a one-woman funk machine born and raised on Detroit Music. Her mission is to serve a mix of musical cuisine that contains consuming house beats, passionate R&B, and unreserved nu-disco. Join her as she concocts her next rhythmic dish.

Surrounded by members of the Detroit DJ community such as Golf Clap and SuperDre, DJ Holographic was inspired and her curiosity got the better of her. She’s had appearances in the underground scene around Detroit at places such as The Grenadier, Tangent Gallery, Grasshopper Underground, The Whiskey Parlor, and many more. Her mixes will put you in a mystic groove long before you leave your 9 to 5 and keep you satisfied until the sun comes up. Her DJ sets have always come to life when the crowd hangs up their responsibilities for the day and feels the truth within themselves.

DJ Holographic is currently a resident DJ for Norway Detroit, which presents the popular weekly after hours party BAK DØR. This partnership will be expanding this summer to create events in Detroit and beyond. As their fans say, “So hot, please take me to the top”.


Rebecca Goldberg



Back when radio ruled and the boombox gave us mixtapes, live broadcasts were the very essence of the Detroit club music scene. Technology was turning cassettes into CDs and Rebecca’s frequent trips to Harmony House fueled her music collection. She poured over the cherished tunes that were spun on Saturday nights at the State Theatre’s legendary “Club X”. Inspired by Stacey “Hotwaxx” Hale, the Godmother of House Music, who was reigning over the airwaves, it was only a matter of time before Rebecca would satiate her musical appetite as a disc jockey.

Rebecca is now a seasoned radio DJ, having mixed on WDET 101.9’s Sunday Sessions show, 89.3 WHFR out of Dearborn, as well as various internet radio stations hosted in Detroit and worldwide. She is a resident DJ of Nevermore Tuesdays at the Grasshopper Underground, Monday Night Lights at Northern Lights Lounge and a regular player in the house music party scene.

After 5 years of DJing, Rebecca took a more serious pursuit in expressing herself with sound by learning tools and techniques of electronic Music Production. In January 2016, Rebecca independently released her first EP, A Trip to the Moon. The 5-track suite is a collection inspired by and intended to serve as a score to Georges Méliès’ 1902 silent film, Le Voyage Dans La Lune. With performances in Detroit and Paris to promote the project, Rebecca has gained momentum as not only a DJ, but also an emerging producer and performance artist.

Marshall Applewhite



Detroit-based producer/DJ Marshall Applewhite has set himself off on a journey of sonic terror reaching out to the late night, early morning, ears of exotic dance music fans around the globe. His sound, albeit jarring at times, encompasses the gritty nature of the city he was brought up in. Co-heading the sludge movement with The Friend, Applewhite has brought new life into the techno world. Slow, acrid, low-frequency soundscapes are all a part of what makes Applewhite unique in an overpopulated world of generic music. With a slew of releases out on Detroit Underground, How To Kill, Clan Destine, Senseless Neon and his own YoSucka! Music, Marshall is showing no sign of slowing down.




Moving to Detroit at the age 18, Lauren Vellucci has begun to make her mark in the Detroit techno scene.

The DJ has also begun to produce her own music and exploring the wide realm of analog gear, which she says has opened many new doors to ideas, and projects for the future.
