Moonchild are a Los Angeles outfit comprised of Amber Navran, Andris Mattson, and Max Bryk. Over the course of four studio albums, the trio have put their expansive multi-instrumentalist talents on full display through their dreamy organic neo-soul and jazzy R&B music that's further enhanced by Amber's silky vocals. Fresh off the release of their new album Little Ghosts, and just ahead of their Seattle show at Neumo's on Saturday, November 9th, Moonchild deliver a supremely smooth and laid-back guest DJ mix for Midnight in a Perfect World that features a few songs off their new record while also spotlighting the contemporary neo-soul, jazz, R&B, and hip-hop artists that have influenced and inspired their own late-night sound.
