Caribou’s Dan Snaith has announced that he will release the debut album from his more club-focussed Daphni side-project on 8 Oct. Entitled ‘JIAOLONG’, the album will be released through his own label of the same name.

Says Snaith: “DJs have the potential to blindside you. During the time I was making the Caribou album ‘Swim’, I fell back in love with those 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 existing. Daphni tracks are rough and spontaneous. They’re about working fast and intuitively, capturing the manic energy needed to start a track one afternoon, and have it finished and be playing it in a club that night”.

Listen to one of those “rough and spontaneous” tracks, ‘Ye Ye’, here, after which you’ll find the album’s tracklisting.
