02 OCTOBER 2020 (TORONTO, ON) - US designer, entrepreneur and DJ Virgil Abloh has shared his remix of Michael Kiwanuka’s "Solid Ground."
Abloh founded the renowned Off-White fashion label and has been the artistic director for menswear at Louis Vuitton since 2018. Outside his fashion credentials, Abloh is a DJ, dropping remixes in collaboration with the likes of Boys Noize and Tiga & The Martinez Brothers.
Earlier this year, Abloh selected Michael’s "Solid Ground" to introduce his Louis Vuitton Fall/Winter 2020 Paris Fashion Week Show, and has extended his appreciation of the track with the remix which launches today.

The original version of "Solid Ground" features on Michael’s acclaimed third album, KIWANUKA. The album won the Mercury Prize last week, introducing it to a broader global audience and subsequently pushing it right back up the UK album charts, peaking at two in the midweeks which is where it entered back in November 2019.
Watch Michael and a string orchestra perform "Solid Ground" at London’s V&A earlier this month here. Watch the video for Michael’s current single, ‘‘Light (edit)’ BELOW.
