Minnesota United’s DJ Taylor Joins the Urban Pitch Podcast

Our latest podcast episode features our very first MLS guest — none other than Minnesota United defender DJ Taylor. We discuss his acclimation to the league, his Venci clothing brand, and his eclectic pregame playlist.

DJ Taylor wants you to know that his skills extend beyond the pitch. The 24-year-old Minnesota United defender has shown promise since joining the club last season, but he also has his own clothing label, Venci, which he has big plans for in the near future.

We’ve previously spoken to Taylor about the inspirations behind Venci, but even in the few months since that discussion, the brand has evolved. A shift from high end athletic wear to becoming a full on luxury label is in the works, and Taylor came by the podcast to discuss his vision for his upstart label.

In addition, he shares some insight into his growth as a player from his days as a teenager in Spain, to his time with North Carolina FC, to getting more playing time in MLS. And you know we had to talk about his love for Drake, as well as Spanish artists like Bad Bunny and Ozuna.

You can watch the entire podcast on YouTube, or listen to the audio on streaming services including Apple and Spotify.
