Canblaster is the alias of veteran influential French electronic producer Cédric Steffens. Over the past 15 years, he's been a major yet discreet figure in the electronic music world, releasing stellar solo EPs on labels such as Pelican Fly, Marble, and Bromance, serving as a founding member of the electronic supergroup Club Cheval, and contributing official remixes for Charli XCX, A. G. Cook, Breakbot, Sinjin Hawke, Cashmere Cat, and more. Earlier this year he unveiled his latest visionary statement with LIBEROSIS, an 18-track journey released as three individual EPs that put his futuristic club aesthetic, cutting-edge sound design, and thrilling synth-pop talents on full display.

Canblaster's exclusive guest DJ mix for Midnight in a Perfect World wonderfully reflects his own adventurous music as it seamlessly journeys through a mesmerizing club/electronic landscape, often layering and blurring multiple tracks together in hypnotic, kinetic, and masterful fashion.
