Giraffage – Maybes ft Japanese Breakfast (RAC Remix)

This post was originally published on this site

Less than two months after its release, Giraffage has followed up his debut Too Real album with a set of remixes.

The five-track set includes a blissfully mellow rework of “Maybes” from Grammy-winning artist RAC. He’s taken the minimalist track and given it a bit more of a dance backbone. Though it’s still true to its delicate roots, RAC is able to seamlessly morph “Maybes” into a smooth-flowing remix that accentuates Japanese Breakfast‘s vocals and pays homage to Giraffage’s well-crafted original.

Other remixes of Too Real include “Green Tea” remixes from Carpainter and Onra, another “Maybes” remix from Masayoshi Iimori, and a “Slowly” remix from Hiko Momoji. The set of remixes is out Dec. 5.
