I love this song. The-Dream is probably one of my favorite male R&B stars (next to Usher and Wale), and this Giraffage remix just hits the spot. It’s nuts.
Giraffage is Bay Area local Charlie Yin. The mutli-instrumentalist producer has been described as “a weaver of refreshingly crisp electro dream pop” who “evokes a woozy yet familiar mood” – a pretty epic description, which he lives up to with this track. You’ll be swimming in smooth beats like it’s 2007 all over again.
What does 2007 sound like? Even more autotune and a well-timed beat. I didn’t think songs like this could improve past their Radio Killa perfection, but it did. And by the way, Charlie’s awesome. He just upgraded his SoundCloud account to have unlimited downloads. As he said himself, have at it. A Christmas miracle!
Fun fact: did you know that The-Dream co-wrote Bieber’s “Baby”? No wonder it has all those “Ooos!” You can find more of The-Dream on his official website. Meanwhile, Giraffage’s got his own website that acts as a portal to all his social media accounts. Check it out here. His debut LP, Comfort, is out now on Bandcamp.
