Midnight In A Perfect World: Raji Rags

Midnight In A Perfect World
Alex Ruder

The alias of London native Raj Chaudhuri, Raji Rags is widely considered one of the key tastemakers in his hometown both behind the scenes and in front of the decks. Throughout his multifaceted career, he's hosted a long-running residency on East London's revered NTS Radio, thrown clandestine underground raves as part of the Bubble Chamber collective, co-founded the now iconic hip-hop party and DJ collective Livin' Proof, served as A&R for R&S Records and Bleep, and played a massively influential role as Head of Music for Boiler Room. While he's a man of many talents, Raji feels most at home behind the turntables, where he is known for seamlessly exploring different genres and styles.

For his Midnight In A Perfect World guest DJ mix, Raji has fittingly put together an immaculate blend of "Instrumentals for late night listening." Stitching together iconic hip-hop instrumentals with visionary downtempo beats by electronic producers, Raji's mix is a beat lover's chilled-out paradise.
