Midnight In A Perfect World: Michael Manahan

Midnight In A Perfect World
Alex Ruder

Seattle's Michael Manahan has been a critical figure in the local electronic music community over the past two decades, playing a major role in Starborne Shows/Starborne Sound, Cascadia, and Decibel Festival, as well as through the iconic Seattle nightclub Re-Bar. The driving force behind the new Chance of Rain Festival that launches this year and runs from September 28th through October 2nd, Manahan is also no stranger behind the decks, frequently spinning at both festivals and shows around town. His exclusive guest DJ mix for Midnight in a Perfect World is a smooth, seamless, and cerebral blend of top-tier tech-house grooves to get your mind and body ready for this year's Chance of Rain Festival.
