Few bands have stayed as consistently fresh and funky throughout the 21st century as NYC-based outfit !!!. Formed by Nic Offer in Sacramento in the late 1990s, !!! have managed to tinker and reveal new shades to their infectious dancefloor-primed sound over a deep catalog of unmissable singles, EPs, and albums. Last month they unveiled their 9th full-length album Let It Be Blue for their longtime label Warp Records, adding another colorful entry into their discography that finds them sprinkling in acoustic folk-pop ballads, Balearic dance-pop, and reggaeton amidst a steady supply of thumping house jams and New Wave-influenced funk.
Compiled and mixed together by the band's ringleader Nic Offer, !!!'s exclusive guest DJ mix for Midnight In A Perfect World is a brilliant journey through timeless global funk grooves. Nic has this to share about the mix: "Music Madness from all over the world. I'm in love with funky music. Simple melodies make me smile. C'est bon. C'est bon. C'est bon."
