DJ Taye -- the alias of Chicago native Dante Sanders -- is a member of the revered Teklife crew, joining the influential collective of juke/footwork artists in 2010 at the age of 16. His head-spinning beats, booming bass, and frantically cut-up samples proudly exemplify Teklife's genre-defining sound, and have also captured the ears of British electronic producer Kode9 and his label Hyperdub Records, who will be releasing DJ Taye's next full-length album in early 2018. His exclusive guest DJ mix for Midnight in a Perfect World swiftly storms through nearly 30 high-energy juke tracks both new and old, with most coming from his Teklife family members, all mixed in seamless kinetic fashion.
