Seattle-based DJ Zarina Zumrad (aka N SO) has been a key figure in the local underground music community over the past 4 years, propelled by her dedication to creating a refreshing + dynamic club experience, as well as an affinity for thick bass lines + swinging rhythms. Her genre-spanning tastes + sharp ears have led to affiliations with the OMW crew, Heat Records, and TUF, and she's set the tone on shared stages with cutting-edge artists such as Machinedrum, Kastle, the Teklife crew, Suzi Analogue, Mumdance, Jimmy Edgar, and many more. With her moniker stemming from the Zen word ensō, a circle that is hand-drawn in one or two uninhibited brushstrokes to express a moment when the mind is free to let the body create, N SO strives to embody a feeling, rather than just serve as an identity. Her exclusive guest DJ mix for Midnight in a Perfect World is a vibrant journey through global club music, swiftly storming through underground dancehall, hip-hop, bass, R&B, reggaeton, and more.
