On his upcoming collection ‘FABRICLIVE93’, Dan Snaith’s club-ready incarnation Daphni is following in the footsteps of Ricardo Villalobos and Omar-S by presenting a collection of 23 brand new tracks and four edits. ‘Tin’ is one of those, but for anyone who’s ever had the pleasure of seeing Daphni play live then the track will no doubt feel familiar. That’s because it’s been floating around in his sets for some time, but has never been fully realised as a track.
Luckily, ‘FABRICLIVE93’ has given Dan the perfect excuse to finally unleash the crowd-pleasing juggernaut on to the world properly. While ‘Tin’ has some euphoric highs (complete with rhythmic house beats and stuttering, reverberating synths that can swell with incredible force), it also sits somewhere between the dance-oriented, propulsive nature of Daphni and the more meditative, thoughtful side of Caribou. Its vocal loop in particular is soulful, but also yearning and mournful. ‘Tin’ manages to marry both of Dan’s worlds into a happy union though. It effortlessly weaves the two projects’ identities into four minutes that’s just as much at home being heard by a sole person through headphones as it is by hundreds on the dancefloor.
