A pivotal artist on Paris' iconic label Ed Banger Records, French DJ and electronic producer SebastiAn has been a captivating solo artist, highly-coveted remixer, and in-demand collaborator since he made his debut in 2005. His cutting-edge electro sound led to big-time remixes for Daft Punk, Mylo, The Kills, Bloc Party, and more early in his career, and he's since gone on to collaborate closely with Frank Ocean, Charlotte Gainsbourg, and Kavinsky. A couple months removed from the release of his long-awaited, genre-blurring, star-studded sophomore album Thirst, his exclusive guest DJ mix for Midnight in a Perfect World is a brilliant whirlwind through 30+ tracks that spotlight his unique fusion of electro, pop, R&B, funk, and hip-hop that includes a handful of his own songs alongside tracks from influential favorites like Daft Punk and Prince as well as top-notch selections from talented contemporaries.
