How do you celebrate when Fool’s Gold signs you for an EP release and Porter Robinson offers you an opening spot on his upcoming Worlds tour? If you’re Giraffage, you dish out a brilliant new take on R. Kelly’s classic Ignition Remix and give it away to fans as a free download.
San Francisco producer Charlie “Giraffage” Yin has been making waves for a few years now with his experimental dream pop sound and funky R&B remixes, but things are ramping up quickly for him in 2014. In his latest, Giraffage turns R. Kelly’s famous ballad into an enchanting dance number with a downtempo, trap-esque beat and a slew of bright keyboard notes and space-like synths.
Look out for Mr. Yin at a Worlds tour stop near you. And while you’re waiting for Giraffage’s EP release later this fall, grab his Ignition Remix remix as a free download here. Singing along is encouraged.
