Giraffage has been raw for a minute. I saw him play when his name was still gaining traction at a warehouse party in Brooklyn, and he did a good job but was a bit rough around the edges. I saw him play half a year later at Low End Theory in Los Angeles, and he demolished the place. His posi-vibe bass music is unlike most, and his skill as a DJ has caught up to his abilities as a producer.
But as people’s profiles grow, we don’t often get free albums from them. Even more rare is when those albums are linked to a spot that isn’t built to capture our personal data. But not only did Giraffage offer up a free album that’s hosted by Box, but it’s a rework of The-Dream‘s 2007 album, Love Hate. He remixed the whole fucking album.
If you’re familiar with Giraffage, this is a bit more energetic than we’re used to. It’s still beautiful melodic bass music, but he’s found a swing. He’s getting better with his production in everything he’s releasing, and this ambitious project was pulled off flawlessly. The artwork is amazing as well. You can stream below, and keep in mind this whole thing is available as a free download.
