Midnight In A Perfect World: Sotomayor

Midnight In A Perfect World

Alex Ruder

Sotomayor is the music project of Mexico City-based siblings Paulina and Raul. Featuring Paulina on vocals and Raul handling production, their music is a rich fusion of Afro-Latin rhythms and progressive electronic beats that touches upon cumbia, Afro-beat, dancehall, Peruvian “chicha” and merengue styles. Earlier this year on Valentine's Day they released their third full-length album titled Orígenes on Wonderwheel Recordings, their long-time Brooklyn-based label that's home to fellow KEXP favorites such as Populous, Nickodemus, Chancha Vía Circuito, and Novalima. Their exclusive guest DJ mix for Midnight In A Perfect World is a vibrant, colorful, and transportive journey through infectious global flavors that taps into the diverse styles that influence their own music. Along the way they also sneakin a couple unreleased gems, their own remix of IMS and a new original tune by moombahton pioneer Dave Nada.
