The distinctive sonic world created by Coco & Clair Clair (Taylor Nave and Claire Toothill) has been captivating ears since their debut single dropped in 2015 and the Atlanta duo have become cult favorites over the years with their cool and unpredictable sound. Quickly recording their breakthrough release POSH in 2017 ahead of Clair Clair leaving Atlanta for NYC, Coco & Clair Clair's music captures a playful, breezy, carefree spirit that defies simple categorizations. Following their 2020 stopgap EP Treat Like Gold, Coco & Clair Clair unveiled their official debut full-length album SEXY in November 2022 and confidently put their infectious blend of lo-fi bedroom pop, low-key brash cloud rap, sultry smooth R&B, and cinematic club beats on full display.

Perfectly describing their mix with the 3 words "crazy, sexy, cool," Coco & Clair Clair's exclusive guest DJ mix for Midnight In A Perfect World is an insightful showcase of their wide-ranging influences.
