Giraffage is a San Francisco-based producer and beat guru, by the name of Charlie Yin. His signature sound of electronic pop has won him praise from well known music outlets such as Pitchfork, FADER and XLR8R.
Yin first burst onto the music scene with his debut "Pretty Things" EP. It was immediately followed by his dreamy synth-pop debut album, Comfort" - which XLR8R called “[an] ebullient slice of electronic pop… [with] pleasantly ambient and sample-laden instrumentals.”
In February 2013, Yin released his lush "Need"s mixtape via Alpha Pup Records, showing his versatility as a producer and “omnivorous music lover,” as noted by Pitchfork.
Giraffage’s staying power was fully cemented when he remixed one the sexiest albums of the decade, The-Dream’s "Love/Hate," and turned it on its head. FADER backed the project saying, “Trying to remember a moment of anticipation right before hitting the play button as happy as the one I just experienced.”
He most recently dropped his debut LP "Too Real" just last week. To date Girraffage has toured with the likes of Phantogram, Flume, XXYYXX and served as the main support on Porter Robinson’s massive “Worlds Tour.”
He has also performed at staple music festivals such as Treasure Island, HARD Day of The Dead, Splash House, Lightning in a Bottle and Roskilde in Europe.
