It's a little bit trap, a great deal warped and an all around woozy dream for your senses. San Francisco based producer Giraffage dropped his newest mixtape, Needs parsing nostalgic cuts from Cathy Dennis, Ready for the World and other great love ballads into a nine track rhythm safari. Here his greatest traits are on display with standout numbers like "All That Matters" and "Close to Me" finely weaving vocals and instrumentals in an understated astral fashion. Giraffage is about to embark on the Step It Up Europe tour with folks like xxyyxx, Blackbird Blackbird, Slow Magic and Beat Culture. Check out his tour dates below and the Europe dates here.
