Gilles Peterson with Virgil Abloh // 17-01-2019
“Parties have to have hip people in it. There has to be a relationship between music and fashion. It can’t be a crowd devoid of each other” - Virgil Abloh
Across two hours on Thursday evening (GMT), Virgil Abloh (Off White / Louis Vuitton) shares exclusive music from a project dropping in Spring 2019, as well as his favourite cuts from artists like The Roots, Matty and Octavian. In conversation with Gilles Peterson in the legendary Brownswood Basement, he discusses dropping Radiohead in the club, championing Dizzee Rascal in the States, and the intersections between music and fashion. Virgil closes the show with an eclectic mix of old and new influences, featuring the likes of Frankie Knuckles, James Blake, BadBadNotGood and more.
