San Francisco producer Charlie Yin has made quite a name for himself turning bedroom beats into dance floor staples as Giraffage. His beloved R&B remixes and vibe-laden solo tracks have won early praise from Pitchfork, The Fader, XLR8R and other tastemakers, all while he seals the deal live with lush, bass-driven performances at Low End Theory, Boiler Room and gigs around the globe.
Giraffage is poised for even bigger things with an expansive new EP out later this year on Fool's Gold, and he'll be showcasing these brand-new tracks and more on Porter Robinson's "Worlds" tour of North America.
Seducing the world via his own brand of dream-soaked pop and lushed out r&b, Antonio Cuna, aka Sweater Beats, is a force to be reckoned with. Since the release of his single "MLLN DLLR" on Bondax's Justus Recordings in 2012, Cuna has garnered support from tastemakers like Diplo and Annie Mac, and has delivered standout mixes for Boiler Room and Diplo and Friends. His debut EP for Symbols ("That Feel") sees Antonio implementing more organic instrumentation, as well as original vocals, and the finished product is a strong vision of the future of Pop and R&B. Sweater Beats' sophomore Cloud City EP is due this Fall on LA imprint and long-time affiliate Huh, What & Where.
Wingtip is the moniker of rising Brooklyn (via San Francisco) producer Nick Perloff-Giles. Perloff-Giles introduced the new disco project in 2015 with early fan favorites including "Wonder" and "Keep You Warm." Following a steady stream of releases throughout 2016, he released his most critically acclaimed track to date "Rewind" via Billboard while amassing over seven million streams on the song over its first two months. With strong releases and a growing tour schedule, Wingtip has quickly become an artist to watch in 2017, with Neon Gold crowning Wingtip as "the logical heir apparent to The Knocks' New York disco throne."
