Giraffage announcess debut album “Too Real”/Hear “Slowly” +Tour

Last week, San Francisco producer Giraffage announced his debut album, “Too Real”, slated for release October 20 via Counter Records. In celebration, he shares his dazzling new track from the project, ‘Slowly’; featuring New York-based producer Matosic. Created over the span of two years and recorded entirely in his bedroom in San Francisco, the album chronicles the producers personal journey of self healing, with each song representing a different period in his life. It’s lined with his unique blend of kaleidoscopic beats, dreamy synth-pop and R&B melodies, and features artists Japanese Breakfast, Body Language’s Angelica Bess and more. It’s available for pre-order now. In addition, he will jumping on the road across North America for his 30-date “Too Real” Tour that kicks off on October 25th in Washington, DC and wraps on December 14th in Atlanta.

The son of Taiwanese immigrants, Giraffage thrust himself into music at an early age, a stark deviation from his cultural expectations. He quickly skyrocketed from just being a household name amongst blogs to playing some the world’s biggest music festivals with his signature remixes of R&B favourites that exploded online. In 2014, he released his breakout project by revamping The-Dream’s “Love/Hate” in its entirety and it quickly solidified his position as one of the most promising young producers in the game. He followed it up with his acclaimed “NO REASON” EP later that year and most recently his collaboration on ‘Bring Me Your Love’ with Thea that has amassed millions of plays online.

‘Slowly’; was one of the first songs I wrote for the new album. I spent a lot of time writing and scrapping various other songs/ideas but ‘Slowly’; was the first one to click and in turn it helped inform the rest of the album. This is the first time I’ve worked extensively with vocalists and I think that collaborative aspect led to some of the best music I’ve ever written. This album was written from 2015 – 2017 during a dark period of my life.So finally finishing it was a rather cathartic experience and I’m excited for what the future may hold” Giraffage
