We’ve teamed up with our friends at The Do LaB to bring you a special edition of our guest mix series featuring San Francisco’s Giraffage! As a bedroom producer-turned-touring act, he has established a strong online presence to cultivate a respected reputation for his dreamy future bass beats. Now with Giraffage‘s fantastic guest mix featuring everything from Canblaster to Kaytranada and some unreleased tunes of his own, you can enjoy a proper preview for his show at the KING KING this Friday, January 17th (Tickets).
This year, The Do LaB has made a commitment to feature more new and diverse music and artists for their fans at their shows. With bookings like Giraffage, Darkside, Blockhead, Teen Daze, and Papadosio, amongst others, they’re already on their way to making 2014 one of their best years yet.

Imagine cruising around the waters of Long Beach, CA on board a triple decker ship, while a multitude of killer acts– this time including GDD™’s TROPICOOL and our good friends NICEFINGERS– play across 2 stage areas, indoors and out. On 4th of July weekend 2013, a lively and very boatworthy crowd of 600 people did just that, to fantastic effect. Boatylicious was born and is now back for round two…
MORE INFO & TICKET GIVEAWAY (after the jump)
My most recent music discovery is the beat maker from Frisco, Charlie Yin aka Giraffage, who specializes in dreamy, chilled-out jams.

I really enjoy some of the mellower electronic music, and Giraffage hits the nail on the head with these blissful tracks after the jump.
