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 include DJ Holographic’s brand new single released today, ‘Faith In My Cup’. The track features luscious vocals from Detroit gospel choir and trained singer/songwriter Apropos who recreates the lyrics from an unreleased Father John Misty song which holds huge sentimental weight for Ariel.
