Giraffage 

When: Fri., Jan. 31, 9 p.m. 2014
Price: $10, $13
Giraffage, aka San Francisco bedroom producer Charlie Yin, has gained a steady following since he began releasing dreamy sample-based pop music in 2011. Like his contemporaries Ryan Hemsworth and R.L. Grime, Giraffage has a keen ear for incorporating R&B into electronic music: His 2013 mixtape Needs is mellow and sexy, as he alternately speeds up and slows down familiar tracks. On “Close 2 Me,” Giraffage samples Cathy Dennis’ 1991 song “All Night Long (Touch Me),” transforming a disco hit into a sultry haze (complete with requisite bleeps and bloops, of course). Giraffage performed at last year’s Treasure Island Music Festival but otherwise does not often perform locally, so his upcoming show at The New Parish (579 18th St, Oakland) will be a rare treat. 8th Grader, Bobby Peru, and ChadSalty will open the show.
