Seattle DJ Wesley Holmes has been an influential figure in the Pacific Northwest's DJ and dance community for the past 25 years. As part of a core group of DJs, artists, and promoters that pioneered the house music scene in the Seattle region, he's help put on thousands of nightlife shows and parties. This includes his long-standing residency at Flammable, Seattle's legendary house music weekly that goes down every Sunday night at Re-Bar. Not only a force behind the decks, Wesley is heavily involved in pushing the community forward by inspiring growth in new local artists, bringing innovative acts to Seattle, and on-going efforts to support diversity and strengthen the LGBT presence within the industry. His exclusive DJ mix for Midnight in a Perfect World is a seamless and beautiful journey through dancefloor jams both new and old, kicking off with a trio of iconic 1980s songs before gliding through contemporary-heavy selections that carry a similar uplifting and infectious spirit.
