Ibibio Sound Machine is a British band led by London-based, Nigerian vocalist Eno Williams. Beginning with their self-titled debut album in 2014, they've showcased their vibrant and energetic fusion of West African funk, highlife, disco, and post-punk. They've also become well-known for their brilliant live performances, recently displayed earlier this year during KEXP's International Clash Day broadcast in London.
Their guest DJ mix for Midnight In A Perfect World arrives in celebration of their third album 'Doko Mien' which comes out March 22nd on Merge Records and it's a brilliant high-energy set of funky jams from all over the world that beautifully captures the spirit of their own genre-blurring sound.
