Caribou Releases New Daphni Track “Face to Face”

For the last five or six years, alongside the dance-indebted kraut and psych-pop he makes under his main alias Caribou, Dan Snaith has released a string of straight-up club anthems as Daphni. In 2012, he collected Daphni tracks he’d conceived as DJ tools and standalone singles into a surprisingly coherent album called Jiaolong. Today, he announces the followup, which doubles as the latest entry in the fabriclive series of releases from the hallowed London nightclub Fabric.

Traditionally, fabriclive releases are DJ mixes, maybe with a handful of new original material from whomever’s doing the mixing sprinkled in. But Snaith’s fabriclive 93 sounds more like a proper album, with 23 unreleased Daphni tracks and four edits of material by other artists.

As a first taste of the record, Snaith also released opener “Face to Face,” a groovy minimal tune built on organic-sounding drums and bass. Hear it below, and see the rest of the tracklist via Pitchfork after that. Fabriclive 93 is out July 21.
