Somehow, in between artistic directing Louis Vuitton menswear, helming his own Off-White brand, and DJing around the world, Virgil Abloh has managed to remix Tiga and The Martinez Brothers’ “Blessed.” Hot off collaborating with Pioneer on his version of industry standard DJ gear, Alboh has served up a “Future Jazz” version of the track, and we’ve got the exclusive premiere. Listen to it below.
While Montréal legend and Turbo Recordings founder Tiga describes the original “Blessed” as a “baby born of friendship” created with scene fixtures The Martinez Brothers, Virgil Abloh’s spin on the tech house thumper takes it to a dreamier place, with tripped-out percussion and ear-pleasing synth lines galore.
The digital version of the remix, also featuring Ricardo Villalobos’ remix of “Cleopatra,” officially drops this Friday, May 31 with the vinyl edition already available. Pre-order and pre-save it right here.
