Daphni - JIAOLONG Though he began his career producing pastoral percussive assaults and kraut-leaning jams as Manitoba/Caribou, by the time of his 2010 album, Swim, it was obvious that Dan Snaith was increasingly interested in dance music.

Jiaolong is the sixth studio album by Canadian musician Daniel Snaith, released on October 16, 2012 by Merge. The album was named a longlisted nominee for the 2013 Polaris Music Prize on June 13, 2013.

7 years ago 7 years ago. Dance. Snaith’s upward trajectory shows little evidence of slowing’ 4/5 ‘Electronica Album of the Month’ Mojo ‘JIAOLONG’ is an outstanding venture with quirks and a musicality of its own’ 9/10 DJ ‘Collection of tracks that just won’t quit, those dark corners just got very interesting indeed’ 9/10 Loud & Quiet ‘JIAOLONG is the sound of a producer having the time.

Jiaolong is front-loaded. In the interview above, Snaith admitted that the Daphni project- which purportedly includes still-unreleased material earmarked for Snaith's DJ appearances- has freed him from the constraints of Caribou, which at this point is closer to a standard rock democracy. Caribou is a band used to juggling multiple melodic ideas, a band that has to place a premium on organization and concision.

Jiaolong ‎– JIAOLONG005, Jiaolong ‎– JIAOLONG005CD. There isn't much of a difference between this album and Four Tet's Pink, also released in 2012. So I'm left puzzled as to why Jiaolong earns so much praise while Four Tet's equally accomplished effort is simply forgotten. Springs" sounds like an experiment gone wrong.

While the different name lets Snaith's fans know not to expect more Caribou, on Jiaolong it's still kind of remarkable just how different his approach is. With samples aplenty, raw-sounding keyboards, and looped beats, Daphni deals in a very simple, roots-based kind of dance music. Given how elaborate Caribou's music can be, stripping things back as much as Snaith does on Jiaolong is probably a big part of the challenge - and appeal - of the project on his part.

Jiaolong is the sixth studio album by Canadian musician Daniel Snaith, and the first under the moniker Daphni. It was released on October 16, 2012 by Merge Records

Springs is sampled from Raja Zahr - Drum Sequence, its not just a bunch of random sounds put together or an experiment gone wrong by mr snaith
  • Whatever
Even though Dan Snaith, as Caribou, was already moving in a house direction with SWIM, his new moniker of Daphni goes all the way. JIAOLONG settles into a rhythm right away (as well as a hefty dose of acid disco) with "Yes, I Know" before their mix of Cos-Ber-Zam's "Ne Noya" jumps into a deep Afro fusion (which is later echoed in "Pairs"). Meanwhile, the flute and gurgling synths of "Light" offset the martial snare drum and growing acid, and a touch of Middle Eastern melody creeps onto the throbbing "Jiao," whereas "Springs" seems to be a series of sound effects set on repeat, but the blissful, hissing ends the album on a nice, sci-fi soundtrack. A fascinating extension of Snaith's musical persona.

Pairs is such a BADASS tune i wish it was a 12". And twice as long. And twice as LOUD! UGH!!!
  • Bloodhammer
My 2xLP copy has the C/D labels on both records, so the track listing shows Pairs, Ahora/Jiao, Springs, Long as the tracks on both records. Has anyone else seen this?
  • Gaxaisvem
My 2xLP copy shows the exact opposite tracks (A/B labels) on both records.
  • Cashoutmaster
Ditto. ~matt
  • Nalmergas
Mine has the c/d label on both discs as well... The first record is engraved with a/b and the songs are correct.

Does anyone know whether this LP comes with a download code for the album? Like the US version does?Any information is much appreciated. Thanks!

There isn't much of a difference between this album and Four Tet's Pink, also released in 2012. So I'm left puzzled as to why Jiaolong earns so much praise while Four Tet's equally accomplished effort is simply forgotten. Some of these tracks are great - others border on filler. "Springs" sounds like an experiment gone wrong. "Light" and "Pairs" leave something to be desired. I think Dan Snaith might still be learning how to do dance music, and this is an early, raw example of his output. His approach at present seems to be find a catchy vocal sample and loop it - only on "Long", "Jiao" and "Ahora" does he demonstrate some compositional brilliance. In my view, it's overrated - not a top 5 album in 2012, as some have claimed. Still worth a listen, anyhow.

funnily enough there was a four tet/daphni vinyl with a tune from each of the albums you just mentioned - ye ye and pinnacles http://www.discogs.com/Four-Tet-Daphni-Pinnacles-Ye-Ye/release/2768615

Yes, agreed. May be there are too much of filler tracks, but for example "Ye Ye" was one of the best tracks in 2011, re-released on this album. I almost forgot the bootleg tracks "Ne Noya" and "Yes I Know", they are also brilliant (also re-released tracks, unfortunately). Maybe the whole album is too short, and contains old and still released stuff, also the random sequence of the tracks, giving a caotic and hectic mood which really irritates me... It could give a lot more, for example "Scratch", "Buck Dance" and "Deep Blue" from Dan's Resident Advisor mix.
