7digital What we said: Caribou’s Dan Snaith pulled no punches when announcing his debut LP as Daphni. Apparently, the aim was to “liberate, surprise, and innovate”, and to save us from a “backdrop of bland and functional dance music and the mind-numbing predictability of the EDM barfsplosion currently gripping the corporate ravesters.” We’re not entirely sure what that particular portmanteau even means, but if it’s an eclectic, club-friendly set he was aiming for, it’s job done on Jiaolong. Whether he’s putting his own, psychedelic spin on Chicago House on ‘Springs’, messing with mid-90s trance on ‘Ye Ye’ or creating Middle Eastern-influenced 8-bit sounds on ‘Jiao’, Snaith’s proven he’s on peak form.
