Amelia Holt is such a mainstay of the Brooklyn circuit, she’s practically part of the furniture. A prime example of what good can come from the blending of cultures, the Mexico-born, New York-based DJ is very much a product of her environment – the fusion of Latin rhythm and fiercely forward-facing electronic tropes heard in her DJing is indicative of the melting pot where she cut her teeth. In a city as linguistically and culturally diverse as you’re likely to find, Holt wields music as a unifying force.

Holt’s mix is a transportive listen, offering portals to imagined vistas. Beatific soothers, off-kilter rhythmic experiments, shape-shifting IDM and trance-inducing dancefloor prog coalesce into something preternaturally dreamlike and strangely familiar.
