Wild City Premiere: Giraffage Minimix
12 February 2016
Diplo’s Mad Decent Block Party is all set to take place next week in Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore with performances by a host of acts we’re very excited to see here. Joining the ranks of Major Lazer, Big Gigantic and Gorgon City is ace American producer Giraffage (a.k.a. Charlie Yin) – who’s prepped a mini-mix to get you in the mood.
The California local and Fools Gold signee is known best for his collaborations with Porter Robinson and XXYYXX. But it’s his original production and larger-than-life live set up that really has us interested – Giraffage’s candy tinted R&B always has a sense of depth despite the maximalist beats and sweeping synth lines.
The producer has stitched together a great little mini-mix just ahead of his debut India performance at Diplo’s flagship Indian edition of the Mad Decent Block Party. The 15 minute long set is the perfect way to begin an evening out, with its high energy selection of maximalist, R&B and trap influenced electronic music.
