DJ Holographic is a funky force of joy. Born Ariel Corley in Detroit, she is a leading woman of the next generation of the dance music underground, and carries that potent energy with her. When she steps behind the decks, you feel her love as she channels the energy of the crowd and the seasons, curating a soundtrack of house, funk, techno and beyond.
Corley has filled many a hallowed space with her resonant sound for the past 13 years. Since cutting her teeth in the certified underground of Detroit’s warehouses, she’s played four Movements and become a regular DJ at the famed Panorama Bar. 2022 was a banner year with many firsts, including an Australia tour and Coachella debut. Swedish House Mafia tapped her to open seven of their stadium shows, and she toured North America and Europe several times over.
Techno forefather Carl Craig tapped her to curate Detroit Love Vol. 5 in 2021, the compilation album series on his iconic label Planet E Communications. It got a nod from DJ Mag for 2022 Best Compilation and came with a funky DJ Holographic original, “Faith in My Cup” featuring Apropos. Her first release came in 2020, a playful three-track EP, Parallel Shifting. Corley is excited to share new music in 2023. The time to enter the world of DJ Holographic—a joyfully soundtracked, ever-expanding, creative, heart-centered glittering disco ball of possibility—is now.
