Wilma Archer is the alias of London-based multi-instrumentalist and producer Will Archer. Originally emerging under the moniker Slime, he's been crafting lush music that blends soul, jazz, R&B, hip-hop, electronic, psychedelic rock, and pop styles with a rich, cinematic, orchestral touch. His excellent debut album titled A Western Circular featured guest appearances from MF Doom, Sam T. Herring of Future Islands, and Sudan Archives, and was released on Domino Records back in early April.
His exclusive guest DJ mix for Midnight In A Perfect World is a proper glimpse into his extremely diverse sonic world as he stitches together a vast array of styles, genres, and eras with a painterly stroke. While incredibly varied, it's all held together by his acute ear for the timeless, quirky, unique, and magical sounds that characterize his own music.
