Montreal-based DJ and producer Patrick Holland, who performs as Project Pablo, has a knack for riding restrained grooves into a deep headspace, creating DJ sets that marry an insistent house-music pulse with traces of the music's atmospheric possibilities. Holland's original productions, like "Closer,” from 2016's Beaubien Dream EP, and "Tunstall," from this year's full-length Come To Canada You Will Like It, explore the same realm, one that's equally inviting for people who want to dance and people who just want to drift away in relaxed bliss. Holland is also donating proceeds from Bandcamp sales of Come To Canada to Coast Protectors, a movement of indigenous peoples fighting back against oil pipeline projects in Canada. Joining Project Pablo at this installment of Robinia Courtyard's Jams series is Rouse, a San Francisco DJ whose sets weave together everything from far-flung ambient passages to driving techno and industrial elements. Madisonians NLP, Evan Woodward, and Erik Kramer round out this DJ night with their own eclectic selections. —Scott Gordon
