The alias of Los Angeles-based DJ/producer Charlie Wilder, Captain Planet has been a steady force on the global music scene with his vibrant blend of African, Caribbean, South American, and Middle Eastern influences with funk, hip-hop, reggae, dancehall, and house styles. Earlier this summer he released his 5th full-length album No Visa on his longtime label, Brooklyn's Bastard Jazz Records.
In true spirit to his namesake and his own music, Captain Planet's guest DJ mix for Midnight In A Perfect World feels like a groovy trip around the world, as he spotlights fresh beats and hypnotic rhythms from different pockets of the world and connects them all together in seamless fashion.
