w/ Cosmo’s Midnight
Leon Osborn + Astral DJs
8pm Saturday 17th August
Oxford Art Factory
Astral People are pleased to present an evening of sensual seduction with San Francisco electronic outcast Giraffage.
Diving under a wave of bedroom innovation, Giraffage’s screwed-down RnB soundscapes have hit a nerve with the world’s top-end publications, featuring extensively on the likes of Pitchfork, The Fader, XLR8R and Gorilla vs. Bear. Self-releasing his debut LP ‘Comfort’ in 2011, his decisively dreamy sound palate has since seen remixes of Janet Jackson, The-Dream, Owl Eyes and more over a free EP on Alpha Pup and a collaborative release on Kitsune with next-gen Florida superstar XXYYXX.
Touring across the US in 2012 with (fellow Astral alumni) XXYYXX, Giraffage has since performed across the globe from London’s KOKO, LA’s esteemed Low End Theory, Paris Social Club and the Brooklyn Vega showcase for SXSW. Touring Australia for the very first time, be ready for this underground secret to blow you up in a big and extremely sexy way.
Giraffage will be joined by special guests Cosmo’s Midnight who will be launching their new single ‘The Dofflin’ along with Perth’s Leon Osborn and Astral DJs.
Also on the night we’ll be hosting Pangaea (Hessle Audio/UK) at Civic Underground, we’ll have very affordable combo tix available so you can come down and afterparty with us!
