Midnight In A Perfect World: Sam Gellaitry

Midnight In A Perfect World
Alex Ruder

Sam Gellaitry is a prodigious Scottish electronic musician who quickly turned heads as a teenager with Short Stories, his 2015 debut EP that first put his visionary future club beats on full display. Subsequently signed by XL Recordings, Sam showcased his evolving talents over the course of his Escapism EP trilogy for the revered UK label. This year Sam returned with his 4th EP, the aptly-titled IV, that finds him prominently adding his own vocals into the mix for a colorful and futuristic synth-pop sound that blends his production wizardry with a magnetic pop sensibility.

Sam's exclusive guest DJ mix for Midnight In A Perfect World is a whirlwind journey through his myriad of influences within the disco, pop, electronic, funk, and rap realms. Between kicking off with a Michael Jackson classic and closing out with his own futuristic synth-pop song, Sam storms through nearly 40 tracks within 60 minutes sprinkling in a treasure trove of infectious cuts along the way.
