Seattle's Megan "Emecks" Xaybanha is a triple threat as a musician, DJ and professional dancer and may be best known as a core member of the wildly fun and genre-smashing local group Don't Talk To The Cops! In addition to her work in DTTTC! (be on the lookout for their new album, Forevers, dropping later this year!), she can be found DJ'ing with her partner djblesOne at the popular Real Love 90$ Jam$ night every Tuesday at Havana, spinning nothing but the freshest in feel-good 90s hip-hop and R&B. Her mix for Midnight In A Perfect World proudly reveals her inner R&B junkie while storming through 90s favorites, a handful of contemporary dancefloor jams, and a selection of slick 80s boogie/disco grooves.
