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, the Brooklyn-based label home to Danny Brown, Duck Sauce and other indie heroes. He’ll be showcasing these brand-new tracks and more on Porter Robinson’s “Worlds” tour of North America, kicking off August 28th in Vancouver and stretching through October 18th in Miami.
For a taste of what’s in store, check out Giraffage’s ecstatic re-imagination of R. Kelly’s classic summer jam “Ignition (Remix)” on the Fool’s Gold Soundcloud.
