The solo alias of Berlin-via-London electronic producer Robin Braum, Athlete Whippet has been making steady waves in the underground electronic scene over the past 7 years. Originally a collaborative project alongside co-founding member Avi Barath, Athlete Whippet began their journey in the mid 2010s with standout singles on their own imprint, Squareglass Records. The last few years have seen the project breakthrough into new territory with Robin carrying the Athlete Whippet torch and dropping top-notch releases for premier labels like Aus Music and Toy Tonics, the latter recently serving as the homebase for the addictive 4-track EP U Never Listen.

Athlete Whippet's exclusive guest DJ mix for Midnight in a Perfect World is an infectious and celebratory affair full of joyful house anthems that highlights some of the amazing music that his friends and family are putting out there in the world.
