Biography

As some people are probably aware, during the time I was making Swim, I rekindled a love with club music that had been dormant for the previous decade or so. A particular kind of club music, anyway; I’d fallen back in love with moments in small, dark clubs when a DJ puts on a piece of music that not only can you not identify but that until you heard it, you could not have conceived of it ...

Editorial Reviews

Jiaolong (pronounced JOW-long), an album of shape-shifting work that sits easily with the kinetic likes of Theo Parrish and Floating Points, marks the first full length by Dan Snaith-as-Daphni.

Throughout his six-month global Radiohead support tour, Dan Snaith has fallen deeper in love with the dance floor. Snaith says, "DJs have the potential to blindside you. During the time I was making the Caribou album Swim, I d fallen back in love with moments in small, dark clubs when a DJ puts on a piece of music that not only can you not identify, but that until you heard it you could not have conceived of existing. "

"Electronic instruments are notoriously uncontrollable, unpredictable, and recalcitrant! " Snaith says ruefully. "I ve been building a modular synthesizer, which plays a prominent role on this album. It growls or screams when I don t expect it to. Nudging one dial changes the sound so drastically that I ll never get the original sound back. It s like improvising with another musician, and its voice is all over this music. "

"I ve been surprised by the number of transcendent moments I, sober and in my mid-30s, have had in clubs in the last few years, " Dan says. "There s some magic in it still. The clichés about the collective consciousness of clubs still seems to hold water in some special cases. There is a small world where dance music lives up to its potential to liberate, surprise, and innovate. It s there that I hope Daphni has a place. " Jiaolong is sure to be seen as one of the best records of 2012, both in the dance community and beyond.

Format: Audio CD
Dan Snaith is better known as Caribou. So you may be forgiven not making any connection between that body of work and this. However, on this form Caribou might be a thing of the past as this is a solid collection of dance riffs and tunes.

Each track starts out with a beat and riff and then kind of explodes into action. Listen to the snippet of Yes I Know on this page and you don't hear the moment ten seconds after the fade out where it explodes into life with horns and vocals. Its this layered approach which keeps you interested and eventually leaving the tracks in your consciousness. Pairs is another fine example with its African influence obvious from the start and then its turns into a house music track. This is an album with lots of influences from Africa, Miami House and soul. But at its heart its a great dance collection

Snaith may have made his name as Caribou. This will push him further forward. Its a great collection and for my money better than anything he has delivered before.

There are certainly some highs and lows on the album but the highs are definitely worth it. Check out Caribou's "Resident Adviser Mix" if you want a taste of what's on this album.

The album as a whole is not as good as the "single" YES I KNOW but look still 5 stars bc it is 5 stars good and there are additional standout tracks and it's Merge Records so you know the physical properties will be fine and you will also get a download card
