Virgil Abloh links with Boys Noize to deliver first official single, ‘Orvnge’
Virgil Abloh‘s moonlighting around electronic music has finally culminated in his official debut release, and he’s found the perfect collaborator for his first dip into the production game. Following up on their early 2017 OFF-WHITE MAYDAY collection, Abloh rejoins with Boys Noize for “Orvnge” and where last spring’s joint clothing project relied on the renown designer’s expertise, this time around the ball is firmly in Boys Noize court. Together they proctor a suspenseful, minimal rave tool, clearly inspired by the pair’s complementary aesthetics. The Illinois-bred multi-creative explains the track was,
“Birthed out of mutual admiration of our points of views in music and art alike, we made a track to score the moment,”
His Berlin-based counterpart drives the point home, suggesting that the BNR and OFF-WHITE camps will continue to collaborate in the future,
“This first track of ours sums up that awesome vibe we’ve shared in my studio in Berlin. It’s a club banger sui generis. And it’s the beginning.”
Abloh’s penchant for where dark and industrial meet electronic music first came through in his 2014 live tour concept for Flosstradamus. Now Abloh is behind the console, and Boysnoize Records could be a fitting home label for future releases.
