His exclusive guest DJ mix for Midnight in a Perfect World is a groovy journey through warm, soulful, and slightly psychedelic sounds ranging from dreamy synth-pop to lush house rhythms to textured R&B jams. Within the mix you'll also hear a pair of his own tracks alongside his recent remix for new NYC artist Miles Francis.
