At this point, Charlie Yin seems unstoppable. After spending most of 2015 touring the world and performing at major U.S. music festivals like Outside Lands, Electric Daisy Carnival and Life Is Beautiful, the man behind Giraffage has no time to rest.
As a hybrid of pop and trap music blended with some 8-bit Nintendo nostalgia, Yin has found a unique sound in an increasingly bland landscape of electronic music producers. In fact, his remixes of popular R&B songs and solo tracks have gained critical acclaim from music media outlets over the past few years.
Since graduating from UC Berkeley with a degree in political economics, Yin has turned his focus to music, releasing two full-length albums — 2011’s Comfort and 2013’s Needs — along with a couple of EPs, most recently No Reason in 2014. Last year, the San Jose native worked with fellow electronic artists Viceroy and Patrick Baker on his single “Impression of You” in addition to dropping remixes of ODESZA and Tinashe.
With his arsenal of samples and two-step beats, Giraffage will return to 1015 Folsom for a headlining show with support from Wingtip, Bollywood Life and a few other special guests. Tickets are available for $25, or you could win a pair of tickets by submitting your full name and email below.
