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, and 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 (dates after the jump). For a taste of what’s in store, check out Giraffage’s ecstatic rework of R. Kelly’s classic summer jam “Ignition (Remix),” as premiered on This Song Is Sick.

Non Phixion tagged their name in the hip-hop history books with the drippy marker of an underground classic that is 2002’s The Future Is Now.

Come to our Brooklyn store from 5-7pm to meet Ill Bill and DJ Eclipse and get your signed copy of The Future Is Now. Fool’s Gold is the ONLY physical retail store to carry the premium edition, and we’ll also be running a raffle to purchase one of 10 commercially-unavailable clear vinyl copies. Don’t miss it!
