Giraffage The-Dream Love Hate

Listen: Giraffage Remixed The-Dream’s Entire Love/Hate Album

Seemingly out of nowhere, rising producer Giraffage took the time today to release a remix project of the-Dream’s entire 2007 release Love/Hate. Yes, the single-loaded album that was home to such tracks “Shawty Is Da Shit”, “Falsetto” and many more.…

Giraffage – “Move Me” F. Jhameel & DWNTWN

I’m not familiar with Jhameel and DWNTWN, but they are a perfect complement to Giraffage‘s full-bodied instrumental on “Move Me”. The track stems from the Kitsune America 2 compilation, which drops tomorrow here in the States, and is perhaps the most…

XXYYXX & Giraffage – “Even Though” (Blackbird Blackbird Remix)

Blackbird Blackbird used to be more prolific with his remixes, but he decided to tone things down a bit and work on solo work. Today he breaks free from that by liberating a stunning take on XXYYXX & Giraffage‘s “Even…

Giraffage – “Money”

Imagine your friend with a “Yo, I’m real serious, bruh” look, saying this: “Money.” He’s either trying to snag cash for Chinese delivery (again) or he’s describing how heavy this new Giraffage track hits. Today, Giraffage–who’s embarking on a tour…
