Tomu DJ is an American producer and DJ who has recently emerged as one of the standout new electronic artists of 2021 with her transcendent, uplifting, and euphoric sound. Quietly introducing her music via self-released Bandcamp offerings beginning in the spring of 2020, her leftfield approach to house, techno, juke, downtempo, ambient, breaks, and other styles was on full display throughout her breakout debut album FEMINISTA that was released this past August to critical acclaim. She quickly followed up her debut album with two EPs this past October that were created in collaboration with her close friend kimdollars1.

Tomu DJ's guest DJ set for Midnight In A Perfect World is a unique mixture of her all-time nostalgic R&B/soul favorites, a few previews of her upcoming record that nod to her adventurous genre-blurring productions, and a smattering of unexpected surprises.
