Every November we celebrate 2 anniversaries…
This Sat we mark 6 years of ATLAS at Holocene.
When we started ATLAS in 2003 we knew we wanted to create a night where all of our diverse influences came together.
ATLAS is dedicated to presenting the gritty urban music whose production and traditions are not limited by American borders.
“Global beats” (a phrase that still makes us cringe) is commonly mentioned by many a DJ.
ATLAS is the crew that knows their history & does the research.
Marketing teams & less informed individuals continue to feed the masses what can be easily digested as “Third World,” “Orientalist” & “Downtempo ethnotechno.”
ATLAS exists to give you a lesson in dance geography & urban beats from the global diaspora.
As we continue to resist sonic mono culture, we’d like to thank you for supporting us…
