Midnight In A Perfect World: Christian Rich

Midnight In A Perfect World
Alex Ruder

Christian Rich is the project of Kehinde and Taiwo Hassan, Chicago-born, Nigeria-raised twin brothers who are an in-demand Grammy-nominated production duo behind some of hip-hop's biggest hits of the past decade. With credits dating back to the early 2000s, they've been consistently churning out top-shelf beats for a who's who in the hip-hop community — Drake, Vince Staples, Childish Gambino, Earl Sweatshirt, J. Cole, Vic Mensa, Mac Miller (RIP), Lizzo, and more. Their eclectic range has also led to collaborations with artists outside of the hip-hop landscape like Little Dragon, Snoh Aalegra, and Marshmello, and their expanding sonic palette is on full display on their new singles "pretty" and "cactus flowers."

Their guest DJ mix for Midnight In A Perfect World is a whirlwind journey through hip-hop, R&B, jazz, funk, and more. that packs plenty of surprises, adventurous transitions, and cleverly connects the dots between deep cuts and the the songs that went on to sample them.
