NYC-via-Philadelphia electronic producer Michael Baltra has been delivering high-quality dance music for nearly a decade now under his simplified moniker Baltra. A chameleonic dancefloor producer that nimbly blends house, techno, breaks, and electro flavors with flourishes of jungle, jazz, and post-dubstep, his discography is filled with magnetic tracks rich on romance and melancholy. Since making his debut in 2014, his music has landed on premier labels such as Local Action, Shall Not Fade, Lost Palms, and his own label 96 And Forever Records.

Baltra's exclusive guest DJ mix for Midnight in a Perfect World is – in his own words – a "moody, groovy, and juicy" set that seamlessly segues through underground electronic flavors with moments of ethereal ambient bliss sprinkled into his cerebral, kinetic, immersive rhythms that also sneaks in a few of his own unreleased tracks.
