This event is all ages
With a robust early following and organic online buzz, Giraffage offers a fresh, sample-rich sound of dreamy pop beats, sensual synths and lush experimental electronica. The creation of 23 year-old Charlie Yin of San Francisco, Giraffage is an exciting new producer with an intuitive grasp of modern music manipulation, delivering beats that are dripping with vibes and accessible to all.
Early supporters of Giraffage’s screwed-down soundscapes, sample-based pop music and future R&B include such publications as Pitchfork, XLR8R, The Fader and Gorilla vs. Bear. After an extensive tour with the artist xxyyxx through Europe last year, Giraffage has big plans for 2013, with numerous upcoming performance dates including a Brooklyn Vegan showcase at SXSW and at Los Angeles’ world-renowned Low End Theory club night. Considered one to watch by industry insiders and the online underground, Giraffage’s newest release “Needs” is out for free February 26 on Alpha Pup Records.
"'Moments,' the first track from San Francisco producer and multi-instrumentalist Giraffage's forthcoming full-length album, is a glitchy slice of bedroom dream-pop lushly constructed with layers of samples, sundry instrumentation, and tight percussion. Comfort, his first LP and the follow-up to this year's Pretty Things EP, will continue the hazy romp through looping guitars, 808 thuds and clacks, and diced-up vocals when Giraffage (a.k.a. Charlie Yin) self-releases it." --XLR8R
