Visiting Sydney to receive his GQ Man of the Year award, and attend Supply Store’s ‘The Ten’ pop-up showcasing his Nike Collaboration footwear, SETTINGS˚ shocked the city with an eleventh hour announcement of Abloh’s headline DJ set; his only DJ set whilst in Australia.

 

Access to the event was on ‘first in best dressed’ basis. The line snaked around the block before doors had even opened.

Announcing his arrival in style, Abloh swung from the roof of the club above the 360 degree steel DJ booth stage and dovetailed into a selection of tracks from his famous friends Kanye West, Travis Scott and ASAP Rocky, mixed in with eclectic selections from Radiohead and Tame Impala.

I’ve found it… This is an amazing place.” Abloh would continue to cut the track numerous times to address the crowd.

 

Complete with a back to back with the SETTINGS˚ team, he concluded his set with an impromptu signing session, scrawling his iconic handwriting and personalised messages across a number of people’s sneakers.

 

In Abloh’s own words from the night – “Settings. Very rare settings.
