Sudan Archives is the alias of Cincinnati-bred, LA-based singer, songwriter, violinist, and producer Brittney Denise Parks. Recently releasing her self-titled debut EP this past summer on Stones Throw Records, her mesmerizing blend of Sudanese and West African influences with R&B and electronic production has made her one of the standout new artists of 2017. Her exclusive guest DJ mix for Midnight in a Perfect World is a wonderful stroll through her diverse influences and all-time favorite songs, coolly jumping between top-tier selections that span hip-hop, R&B, soul, rock, reggae, and more. It's a magnetic sonic journey.
