Midnight In A Perfect World
Alex Ruder

mega cat are a Seattle-based trio composed of husband/wife duo and Smokey Brights members Ryan Devlin and Kim West alongside drummer/guitarist Aaron Benson, formerly a member of mid/late 2000s local band Siberian. The three artists recently shared their self-titled debut album, a colorful, vibrant, and enthusiastic instrumental affair that taps into an eclectic funk palette injected with global, jazz, psych, and hip-hop flavors that has quickly become a KEXP favorite.

In regards to their eclectic, ecstatic, and funky exclusive guest DJ mix for Midnight in a Perfect World, mega cat had these insightful words to share: "This mix grows from our roots in the Pacific Northwest, spreads its branches across the globe, and blooms into the cosmos. Many of these artists are our heroes, our guiding stars in our pursuit of new sounds and energies in mega cat, and we're honored to share this playlist with the KEXP community."
