Dan Snaith has always used his numerous projects to give voice to the sounds that most inspire him. His work as Daphni is perhaps his most freewheeling, proving Snaith can not only write and sing effervescent dance pop (such as in Caribou) but can act as resident club DJ maestro. Fabriclive 93, his second record as Daphni, comes in the form of 23 original tracks as well as four edits for the Fabriclive series. Snaith takes listeners on a trip through the London club scene, dipping and diving through sounds and styles that make clubs such as Fabric so iconic.

Snaith manages to weave each track together beautifully while maintaining a sense of perpetual fun and frivolity throughout. "Hey Drum" pulses and kicks under the weight of live drums before giving way to bouncing techno synths. "You Can Be a Star (Daphni Edit)" reworks the Luther Davis Group classic, allowing the guitars to take center stage over a growing and lurching hi-hat. Snaith has always been a master of dance-pop song craft, and this is more evident than ever on Fabriclive 93. This is an ode to a music and place synonymous with a carefree spirit of passion and extravagance, where club residents get lost on the dance floor while the DJ controls the pulse of the crowd. On his latest record as Daphni, Dan Snaith has the pulse of the U.K. club scene in the palm of his hand, creating a timeless ode to a genre he loves. (www.caribou.fm)
