OLAN is the alias of rising Atlanta-based electronic producer, vocalist, and versatile musician Luzana Flores. Steadily bubbling up since making her debut in 2019, OLAN notably featured on Mat Zo's addictive 2020 single "Colours" and contributed to Ari Lennox's 2020 single "BUSSIT" while evolving her own distinctive sound. Last month she stepped more prominently into the spotlight with her debut album Contra released via Anjunadeep Records. Influenced by the likes of Maribou State, Little Dragon, and Bonobo, the album pairs her evocative production talents with dynamic songwriting and personal lyrics that touch upon her experiences as a queer woman of color.

OLAN's exclusive guest DJ mix for Midnight In A Perfect World is a seamless journey that cruises through addictive melodic tech-house grooves before switching things up to sprinkle in some jazzy downtempo beats and atmospheric drum & bass rhythms to close things out.
