Joy Orbison and Overmono are back on XL recordings for another collaboratively produced single, featuring the unmistakable vocals of ABRA.

Diesel break Milan fashion week
Glenn Martens opened up Diesel’s Milan show to the public, shocking many in the industry who favour the fashion world’s inherent exclusivity. In our opinion, democratising the runway can only be a good thing going forward and we hope it’s an ethos many start to follow. The collection’s emphasis on distressed denim caught our eye and proved that we’re living in an era of Diesel revivalism.
