Midnight in a Perfect World: Austin Robertson

Midnight In A Perfect World
Alex Ruder

Austin Robertson is a Seattle-via-SoCal DJ and event promoter who's the driving force behind Routine, a monthly event held at Ballard's Substation venue that's quickly become a destination for "dance music for the adventurous." Fueled by his love of underground music, DJ'ing, and uplifting the electronic and DJ community both locally and internationally, Routine has hosted some of the biggest underground names to come through Seattle over the past year and shows no signs of slowing down in 2024. A tireless supporter of the Seattle DJ community, Austin also supports and showcases the abundant talent Seattle has to offer through his mix series Routine Radio.

Austin's exclusive guest DJ mix for Midnight in a Perfect World finds him roaming the "slower" 100-110bpm tempos that he doesn't typically to share in the club as he nimbly dives into magnetic trip-hop, techno, bass, dub, reggaeton, and other styles that's more ideal for late-night drives and headphone listening sessions.
