This track is a single off the album Entroducing…. (1996) by America’s DJ Shadow. The album is unique in that it was the first of its kind to be assembled entirely out of samples. DJ Shadow‘s use of sampling materials, ranging from television interviews to upbeat hip hop, enabled him to create a visionary piece of work new to the world of music. When listening to “Midnight in a Perfect World,” the title pretty much says it all. I like to envision how all the samples fit together to create this gorgeous track, as it’s a masterpiece of creative precision and musical genius.
