The relationship between globally celebrated fashion designer/DJ Virgil Abloh and world-leading DJ brand Pioneer continues – and we are here for it!
In 2019, Louis Vuitton menswear artistic director collaborated with Pioneer DJ to envision and bring to life breathtakingly stunning transparent CDJs and a mixer – displayed at the Chicago Museum of Contemporary Art in an exhibition called: “FIGURES OF SPEECH.”
In that very same year, Pioneer DJ and Virgil Abloh collaborated on the Pioneer DJ c/o Virgil Abloh™ project, creating the “Orange” CDJ-2000NXS2, the “White” CDJ-2000NXS2, and the DDJ-1000-OW colouring of the bright fluorescent orange and matte white adopted in the “White” DJM-900NXS2.
Fast-forward two years and Pioneer have unleashed yet another collaboration with the highly sought after entrepreneur/tastemaker.
The DDJ-1000-OW is a special model with a unique collaborative design. The fluorescent orange and matt white asymmetrical colours and tagline printing bring a unique look to the DDJ-1000 DJ controller, which offers both high performance and portability. The controller inherits the layout of the CDJ-2000NXS2 & DJM-900NXS2 setup – which is widely regarded by professional DJs as the club standard for DJ gear.
In line with the release of the DDJ-1000-OW, Off-White™ has launched a “SOUND ENGINEERING” capsule collection of clothing, also in collaboration with Pioneer DJ.
The DDJ-1000-OW went on sale earlier this month via a raffle process at selected stores around the globe, so you will no doubt have to battle the sea of resale cowboys around the world if you want to get your hands on one. For those of you that were lucky enough to get your hands on one of the limited-edition units, we do not doubt that you are already having fun on one of the rarest pieces of DJ gear on the planet!
