Adrian Quesada is a versatile, veteran, Grammy Award-winning musician who's a co-founding member of Black Pumas and a creative driving force behind the bands Brownout, Ocote Soul Sound, Spanish Gold, Echocentrics, and Grupo Fantasma. Born and raised in Laredo, Texas and currently based in Austin, Adrian's illustrious career has led to collaborations with the likes of Prince, Los Lobos, and GZA, and a deep catalog of vibrant sounds that reflects his love for music of all genres. This past June he released Boleros Psicodélicos, his first proper solo album under his own name that pays tribute to 1960s-’70s-era balada music and its signature blend of heartbreak, heavy grooves, smooth bossa nova, and art-pop orchestration.
Adrian's exclusive guest DJ mix for Midnight In A Perfect World is an eclectic journey through kaleidoscopic psychedelia, dusty soul, underground hip-hop, fuzzy Latin folk gems, nostalgic rock cuts, and more that jumps around genres and decades in joyful fashion.
