You may know Dan Snaith from his work as Caribou. You may not know (we didn’t) that another alter ego is that of Daphni. And he has a Fabriclive compilation out.
Fabriclive compilations are a staple in the office. John Peel’s is exceptional, as is James Lavelle’s. We digress.
Snaith has put together 23 original, unreleased tracks and four new edits together for his edition of the series. In a press release, Snaith described the process of making the record:
“A lot of these tracks were recorded in situ in the mix itself – I’d put one track in place and instead of searching through existing music to find the track to follow it I’d just make an entirely new one. You’d expect a DJ mix where someone made each track to follow the previous one to be very homogenous. To seem like it was planned out and build in a controlled way. I think the result is almost exactly the opposite! The tracks on here pull from very diverse ends of the spectrum of music that I like/make.”
For us – an album chock full of Friday bangers.
