Born in Zambia, raised in Botswana, and now based in Melbourne, Sampa The Great is a having a breakout year in 2019 thanks to her critically-acclaimed debut album -- 'The Return' -- that came out last month on Ninja Tune Records. She's been making waves and grabbing ears ever since her first release 'The Great Mixtape' dropped in 2015 as she brings a unique perspective to the hip-hop world through a diverse sound that's mixed with R&B, jazz, and various African influences. Her exclusive guest DJ mix for Midnight in a Perfect World is a fantastic display of those wide-ranging influences as she weaves together contemporary faves and influential songs that sway between hip-hop, Afro-beat, R&B, reggae, and more, while also sneaking in a few tracks from her brilliant new album along the way.
