While Virgil Abloh has been the artistic director of Louis Vuitton’s men’s collection since March of this year, he blesses the people with some fine tunes for the summer. The fashion designer recently unleashed an hour-long DJ mix including everyone from DJ Koze and Pearson Sound to Cardi B and Drake.

The exclusive Solid Steel Radio Show mix was filmed in London. Abloh states, “Deejaying in London is always a great time because I like to create a contemporary dialogue with the audience but also root it in vast history of the many sub-genres that makes London super unique.”His first taste in music includes producing on Boys Noize‘s recent collaborative three-track EP titled Orvnge.

From runways to radio airwaves, Louis Vuitton’s Artistic Director has a new design in mind.

On June 18, Virgil Abloh will host the introductory episode of his very own Beats 1 radio show on Apple Music from Louis Vuitton’s atelier in Paris. Entitled “Televised Radio,” the channel will act as an “audio mood board,” fusing new releases with time honored classics, while peppering musical selections with surprise guests who will join Abloh to discuss not only music, but art, design, and fashion.

“Music has an amazing ability to bring people together, and I couldn’t think of a better format to catalog all the multidisciplinary work I do under one umbrella,” Abloh said of the venture. “I’m using the two hours every so often to discuss various design projects and the rationale around them . . . in an effort to highlight my friends that make up my creative world. Apple’s design legacy and consideration of fostering art and design made it a perfect partnership.”

Those interested can tune in at 10 AM PST to catch Abloh’s inaugural episode.
