Better known as Caribou, lately Dan Snaith has fallen deeper into his love affair with the dance floor.

Inspired to work in a completely different way -setting aside the meticulous compositional rigors and musical layers that underpin Caribou songs-, his side project as a dj/producer Daphni reaches out for a more feminine, fluid energy and seeks instant gratification. “Daphni tracks are rough and spontaneous,” he explains. “They’re about working fast and intuitively, capturing the manic energy needed to start a track one afternoon, have it finished, and be playing it in a club that night.”
