British musician, producer, and songwriter Nathan Jenkins is the artist behind Bullion. Originally bursting onto the scene in 2007 with Pet Sounds: In The Key Of Dee, a magnetic beat tape that blended a deep love for The Beach Boys with J Dilla into an influential cult favorite, Bullion's versatile and winding path through the music world has led to work with Carly Rae Jepsen, Nilüfer Yanya, Avalon Emerson, Westerman, Charlotte Adigéry, Panda Bear, and more, in addition to his own riveting solo works. He released his latest critically-acclaimed full-length album Affection via Ghostly International on April 26th.

For his exclusive guest DJ mix for Midnight in a Perfect World, Bullion takes the listener on a beautiful journey through his deep record collection, sharing obscure gem after obscure gem that tap into an eclectic yet cohesive sound touching upon pop, ambient, folk, new wave, and more.
