Vagabond Superstar is the alias of Seattle-based, Chicago-raised DJ Devlin Jenkins, a member of the Board of Deacons DJ crew (alongside KEXP’s own DJ Riz!) and an affiliate of the Late Night Munchies label. He’s a veteran behind the decks who’s been rocking parties for over 20 years. His sets are often rooted in hip-hop and house, but he’s well-known for unpredictable dancefloor explorations that bridge the gap between multiple genres while keeping a distinct underground vibe. His exclusive guest DJ mix for Midnight in a Perfect World is a non-stop party that runs through funky house and groovy tech-house, while also sneaking in some nostalgic throwbacks along the way. Bonus points given to Vagabond Superstar for his clever intro and outro to the mix, adding a special personalized touch with his crafty bookends.
