Midnight In A Perfect World: Pachyman

Midnight In A Perfect World
Alex Ruder

Pachyman is the alias of Los Angeles-based Puerto Rican musician Pachy Garcia. Inspired by a deep love for the raw and gritty sounds of old Jamaican dub records, Pachyman creates transportive dub rhythms and nostalgia-tinted reggae gems. His third album The Return Of Pachyman came out this past August on ATO Records and it finds Pachyman tapping into the influential vision of King Tubby for an "x-ray" of reggae music that masterfully breaks down the genre to its bare bones.

Pachyman's exclusive guest DJ mix for Midnight In A Perfect World is an all-vinyl set that spotlights eclectic gems from his record collection that perfectly fit the "midnight" vibe. Featuring some of his personal favorite tracks that he doesn't typically get to spin during DJ sets, Pachyman takes the listener on a relaxing nightcap journey over this hour-long mix.
