Founder of streetwear giant Off-White, Kanye West’s former creative director, and more recently, the menswear artistic director at Louis Vuitton – is there anything the man can’t do? Well, the answer is a deafening and resounding no, because Virgil Abloh has released music for the first time ever with German producer and DJ, Boys Noize.
The three-track EP, “Orvnge”, was recorded at the Berlin studio of Alex Ridha (Boys Noize) and although initially limited to a vinyl release, is now available to stream online. The result? Surging, pinging, tightly-wound industrial techno.
This isn’t to say that this is Abloh’s first rodeo, with DJing being a known side-passion of the Chicago-born taste-maker (he’s done Boiler Room sets and had a residency in Las Vegas).
