San Francisco-based producer and beat guru, Charlie Yin. His signature sound of electronic pop has won him praise from musical tastemakers Pitchfork, The FADER and XLR8R. He burst onto the music scene with his debut Pretty Things EP. It was immediately followed by his dreamy synth-pop debut album, Comfort, which XLR8R called “[an] ebullient slice of electronic pop … [with] pleasantly ambient and sample-laden instrumentals.” In February 2013, he released his lush Needs mixtape via Alpha Pup Records, showing his versatility as a producer and “omnivorous music lover,” as noted by Pitchfork. Giraffage’s staying power was fully cemented when he remixed one the sexiest albums of the decade, The-Dream’s Love/Hate, and turned it on its head.FADER backed the project saying, “Trying to remember a moment of anticipation right before hitting the play button as happy as the one I just experienced.” He most recently dropped his No Reason EP via Fool’s Gold, the first release to ever feature Charlie’s original work. He has toured with Phantogram, Flume, XXYYXX and served as the main support on Porter Robinson’s massive “Worlds Tour.” He has performed at staple music festivals such as Treasure Island, HARD Day of The Dead, Splash House, Lightning in a Bottle and Roskilde in Europe.

Making waves through outer space and back, the secretive future r&b production don known as Sevnth is the tiger who is low-key taking over the internet. Born in Houston, Texas and currently residing outside Boston, the 22-year-old producer got his start playing Jazz piano at the age of 5, and taking production style cues from the likes of Kanye, J Dilla, Nujabes and DJ Premiere, has grown into his own hybrid style of sampling and creation. Since his first releases in March of 2013, he’s quickly amassed millions of plays throughout the web and multiple BBC Radio 1 features without signs of slowing. His style ranges from r&b, to hip-hop, around to house, and back again in a style that throws the word “genre” truly to the wind in favor of exploration into the yet uncharted territories of electronic music’s future.
