For his exclusive Midnight in a Perfect World guest DJ mix, Tilson pieced together a special Valentine's Day set dedicated to all the lovers in the world that blends together new and old soul favorites alongside some rare edits done by Seattle's own DJ DV-One. The mix also kicks off with one of Tilson XOXO's brand new solo songs that showcases his latest unique and exciting sonic direction.
