Rone is the alias of French electronic musician and filmmaker Erwan Castex. He's spent the past decade consistently evolving a melody-driven, cheerful, and cinematic style of electronic music that was recently put on full display on his 5th album Room With A View for his longtime label, InFiné Records. Outside of his studio albums, he's collaborated closely with revered French icons Michel Gondry and Jean-Michel Jarre, contributed music to the short film titled 'Nature Now' starring Greta Thunberg, and wrote the score to Frédéric Farrucci’s 2019 film titled 'La nuit venue'.

His exclusive guest DJ mix for Midnight In A Perfect World taps into the whimsical widescreen nature of his own music as he stitches together a beautiful assortment of ambient passages, synth-accented neo-classical arrangements, IDM explorations, and other transportive electronic sounds while also seamlessly including the sublime jazz of Yusef Lateef and the classic pop of The Stranglers along the way.
