Mykki Blanco is a trailblazing LA-based transgender artist known for pushing hip-hop to some of its most untethered bounds, while also forging a uniquely subversive path within a genre historically entangled in a problematic ideological web of misogyny, homophobia, and transphobia. Over the past decade, Mykki has paved their own genre-blurring path on their solo releases while also collaborating with a vast array of artists including Basement Jaxx, Kathleen Hanna, Kanye West, and Matrixxman. Last month Mykki unveiled 'Broken Hearts & Beauty Sleep,' an expansive mini-album produced mainly by NYC electronic producer FaltyDL that explores a hip-hop sound infused with R&B, house, bossa nova, and more.

Mykki's guest DJ mix for Midnight In A Perfect World is a truly eclectic journey through their wide-ranging influences, sneaking in a couple unreleased collaborations with FaltyDL before exploring timeless jams from all over the musical spectrum.
