Join us as we celebrate 21 years of Holocene! We're throwing a dance party to mark the occasion, featuring some of our favorite genre-bending, forward-thinking, and fun as heck DJs/producers from near and far: TDJ (Montreal), Chrissy (San Francisco), and Sappho (PDX). Plus immersive live visuals all night by Misha @isopodarmour


In the ethereal realm of dance music, TDJ emerges as a luminary, crafting a sonic universe that marries melancholy with bittersweet euphoria. Geneviève Ryan-Martel, aka TDJ, blends years of composing guitar ballads and experimenting with electronic production; influenced by the trance classics as well as the raw emotion of emo, TDJ’s artistry transcends genres.

 Her first EP “TDJ001” released on 2020 on Montreal’s label Collection Disques Durs, while critical acclaim quickly follows with the release of “TDJ002”, an explosive Eurodance EP featuring standout tracks like “Lalala (Want Somebody)” and “Open Air”, garnering praise from Trax Magazine and Tsugi, and remixes from artists like X-COAST, Panteros666 and DJ HEARTSTRING.

In 2022, TDJ unveiled her debut mixtape “TDJ123”, a meticulous blend of hits from her earlier works and exclusive compositions. Following up in 2023 with her EP “BACK TO 123”, TDJ delves deeper into her influences, an intoxicating world of electronic music that is enticingly and uniquely her own.

Chrissy is a genre-bending DJ/producer with releases on Hooversound Recordings, Sorry Records, Classic Music Company, 17 Steps, Dansu Discs, Pets Recordings, and more. He’s known for his friendly demeanor, big smile, and unwavering support for new artists and marginalized communities in our scene—traits that shine through in his expansive, multi-genre DJ sets. His selections often center on rave music, Chicago house, and disco, but his multi-decade career has ranged from jungle to footwork to freestyle. This unique form of story-telling has brought him to venues such as Panorama Bar and Fabric, as well as prior residencies at Smartbar in Chicago, and San Francisco’s oldest and most storied queer club, The Stud.

Also known as a well-regarded voice on dance music history, Chrissy ran the popular “My Year of Mixtapes” blog, posting original genre-focused DJ mixes every week for a year. He wrote the liner notes for Hardcore Traxx: Dance Mania Records 1986-1997, compiled the forthcoming Montreal disco retrospective Move Up Energize for Unidisc Music, and has written on dance music history, queer history, and advice for young musicians in Mixmag, Beatportal, DJ Mag, Red Bull Music Academy, XLR8R, and Electronic Beats.

Chrissy is also a mainstay of dance music radio, hosting the monthly Maximum Airtime program on Dublab, and dropping in for regular guest mixes on BBC 6 Music, NTS, Rinse FM, and The Lot Radio. 

Sappho is a DJ, musical artist, event producer and co-owner of Koritsi Komma Records based out of Portland, Oregon. Currently, they are a resident DJ at Underground SF in San Francisco, Bottom Forty based on the West Coast, and the following nightclubs and party series in Portland, OR: No Request, NoFOMO, Opal Underground, and The Eagle PDX. In addition to their work in nightlife, they are a DJ for the Rose City Roller Derby. A prominent figure in the music scene in Portland, Sappho is a highly respected DJ and producer known for their eclectic and diverse musical style. Sappho has made significant contributions to the LGBTQ+ community through their music and activism.
