Virgil Abloh, of Been Trill/Pyrex Vision/DONDA fame, has been going on a DJ’ing spree around the world as of late. When he’s not traveling with Kanye or bringing Drake out for a DJ set, he’s likely to pop up in a different city under his new DJ moniker “Flat White” – probably a play on his new clothing line Off-White. (He also put together the stage visuals for Drake’s OVO Fest set this year.)
I caught him and Justin Saunders (JJJJound) holding it down as one-half of the Been Trill DJ collective at the Yeezus after-party earlier this year in Montreal. It was one of the better parties I’ve been to this year, Lunice even jumped on to play a set for a little while. The crowd was a little young but everyone was out and was having a good time. It was really a celebration of how far Montreal has come on the music scene (Lunice/TNGHT co-produced “Blood on the Leaves” on Yeezus).
Virgil recently made this first set available for stream/download (listen above) and on it was this one exclusive from Skepta over the “Chi-Raq” beat which I also included below.
