Giraffage "With You"
- Words: Nathan Albert
San Francisco producer Giraffage, who impressed us last year with his debut LP, Comfort, returns with another ebullient slice of electronic pop. "With You" is a track rooted in big, atmospheric pads and familiar, hip-hop-flavored 808 percussion. A female voice floats about the three-and-a-half-minute song, bringing balance to the production as it alternates between bass-driven surges and bass-less breakdowns. Giraffage's latest output keeps him comfortably in line with other contemporary West Coast beatmakers crafting pleasantly ambient and sample-laden instrumentals, such as Shlohmo or Baths.
