Giraffage
Giraffage
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

Recently Sweater Beats offered his Cloud City EP for free download via LA imprint Huh What & Where, and supplied an official remix to Flume & Chet Faker's Drop the Game single.
Wingtip

Two-stepping between pop, indie, electro, and even a little disco, San Francisco-born and Brooklyn-based artist, multi-instrumentalist, and producer Wingtip—aka Nick Perloff-Giles keeps it classy and catchy at every turn. That’s why his breakout single “Rewind” quickly became a global smash in late 2016. In under three months, the track went from being featured on Spotify’s “Young & Free” playlist to amassing over 12.2 million streams and counting. In addition, it received praise from Billboard, Dancing Astronaut, Indie Shuffle, My Old Kentucky Blog, and Neon Gold who dubbed him, “The logical heir apparent to The Knocks’ New York disco throne.” It all stems from his hypnotic hybridization of natural instrumentation and expansive production.

Enrolling in Columbia University, he became a favorite at campus parties before releasing “Wonder” and “Keep You Warm” online. Prior to graduation, he recorded “Rewind” with Sophie Strauss—whom he met at a taping of The Daily Show—during just one hour of borrowed studio time. With its dance floor gloss, gliding guitar, funky bass, and unshakable croon, the track’s infectiousness is matched only by its immediacy. Signing to Republic Records at the top of 2017, Perloff continues to chart new territory and consistently engage audiences with his signature blend.
