Caribou / Daphni Mars - Head High remixes Two remixes of Caribou's Mars by Head High aka Shed aka WK7 aka WAX! The afro-inflected house cut was a highlight of the recent "Our Love" LP, and things only get better when Germany's hardest hitting producer gets involved. On the A-side, Head High's "Core" mix sticks fairly close to the original, but adds plenty of extra oomph for the mainroom crowd. The polyrhythmic beat is chopped up and reassembled into a frenzied afro breakbeat, while that exotic flute melody, pushed to the fore in the original, is filtered, reversed and burried in the middle of the percussion madness, making for an organic techno trip that's second to none. Flip the disc and prepare to get lost in the hypnotic beauty of Head High's "Venus" mix, an immersive incantation of skipping garage influenced beats, 90s rave stabs and ethereal pads. The infectious rhythm's certain to take care of your tapping toes, while those rave stabs, blasts of flute and psychedelic pads set your head spinning. Jiaolong 12"

Daphni Jiaolong Dan Snaith's first full length release under the monicker of Daphni! Snaith's newest label Jiaolong has been blurring boundaries recently with a host of essential techno/bass/house/afro/electronic records, much more dance floor orientated, for more intimate clubs / spaces according to the man himself... "..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 CD | LP
Emeralds / Daphni Does It Look Like I'm Here (Daphni Mixes) The second limited edition 12" on Dan Snaith's own Jiaolong label. 'Feted kosmische synthesizer wizards from Cleveland OH, Emeralds, have never had any of their music remixed before. Let alone having the title track from their acclaimed 2010 album reworked (twice) into a floor-filling behemoth by Daphni (aka Dan Snaith aka Caribou). "We toured together in 2010 and since then I've always wanted to play their music in my DJ sets. So I did my own version of this track", says Snaith. "It's one of those tracks that whenever I play it I can feel the energy in the room lift." Luckily Emeralds were equally enthusiastic and so this unlikely hybrid see the light of day. ...or rather the dark inside of a club.' Jiaolong 12"

Jeremy Greenspan / Daphni Crown Princess / Guu New 12" on Dan Snaith's, (aka DaphniCaribouManitoba), Jiaolong label. As ever limited pressing... Jeremy Greenspan has made a name for himself as one half of Junior Boys, and he is now releases this solo single. Curiously, both “Crown Princess” and “Guu” find the singer going entirely instrumental. The former is a near ten-minute disco jam, while latter is seven minutes of jarring beats and undulating bass synth! Jiaolong 12"
