Arlo Parks is an emerging Nigerian-French artist from West London who's been capturing ears with her poetic style of soulful R&B that's infused with a strong pop streak and brilliant touches of funk. Just recently turning 20 years old, her intimate and magnetic sound finds inspiration in the likes of King Krule, Frank Ocean, Earl Sweatshirt, and Portishead. Named as one of BBC's breakthrough acts of 2020 in their Sound of 2020 poll, she's been trickling out singles and EPs since debuting in 2018 and steadily building her fanbase along the way.
On her guest DJ mix for Midnight in a Perfect World, Arlo shares inspirational favorites and contemporary classics that carry a seductive nocturnal vibe that touches upon iconic trip-hop, sultry progressive R&B, game-changing post-dubstep, romantic dream-pop, pulsating house jams, and more.
