Fashion design is a creative task involving the shaping, bending, and breaking of codes- archetypes, memes, and references from the past are re-mapped into something novel. Techno production has a similar relationship to it's past, present, and future, as one mines the genre's legacy in order to navigate new territory. Creative polymath Virgil Abloh is most widely known for his fashion work, but it's no surprise his track Orvnge with Boys Noize is a powerfully executed exercise in the shared practice of finding the memetic, fractal base that forms the skeleton for a myriad of patterns that inevitably follow. This is coding at it's best- when something simple set in motion gives rise to unexpectedly beautiful complexity. Virgil Abloh and Boys Noize certainly are masters of their respective codes, and Orvnge is a club weapon serving as a robust beginning for the further possibilities of their collaboration yet to unfold.
