      MIXED BY Giraffage

      August 5, 2013 10:00 PM

      I'm crushing on Giraffage for a number of reasons. It's not just 'cause he's a cute Asian boy who smokes blunts and hides behind a giraffe mask. Although that probably has something to do with the number of hearts I've just doodled all over my screensaver of him. 

      The 23-year-old San Franciscan is also quite good at making gorgeous dream-pop for dancefloors. He started out as a bedroom producer before earning his stripes on a European tour with fellow musical prodigy XXYYXX last year. After returning stateside, he released his mixtape Needs in February on Alpha Pup—also home to his musical brethren and fellow Californians Nosaj Thing, Teebs and SAMIYAM. Giraffage's mix for THUMP takes us through contorted R&B, far-out 4x4, and timeless classics like Canblaster's 2011 hit "Clockworks." Pop some Skittles, close your eyes and pretend you're puffing some medical shit at a Low End Theory club night. 

      You can catch Giraffage on tour across Australia, Europe, Canada, and the US through the end of October, 2013. Check below the tracklist for tour dates.
