DESCRIPTION:
Ltd Edition 4 Track EP from Caribou Alter Ego - Tuff, Funky & Essential. Many Annie Mac Radio 1 plays!

The DJ edit is a cornerstone of house music, one that proves a tricky endeavor for producers to this day. Crafting the perfect edit is something of an alchemical process: Find an excellent groove and boil it down to its most essential sections. Add new elements—fatty kick drums, more BPM, some claps here, a tasty piano trill there—and bring out as much detail as you can using modern-day mix techniques. Lastly, and most importantly: Don’t ever get in the way of what’s already great.

Daphni’s new single “Sizzling” is a rework of the title track from Sizzlin Hot, the only album ever recorded by Bermudian band Paradise. Relegated to obscurity until a relatively recent reissue, the 1981 album features the type of horn-driven funk and boogie spearheaded by Earth, Wind & Fire through much of the prior decade. Dan Snaith’s edit takes the main break and punches it up, drawing out the jittery guitars but leaving space for singer June Ventzos’ irresistible refrains.

“Sizzling” lists Paradise as a featured artist, rather than shunting them to a mere acknowledgement in the credits, which technically makes this Daphni track—released with the band’s blessing—the first “new” release from Paradise in almost four decades. This demarcation isn’t a charitable decision; Snaith understands that so much of the magic in DJ edits comes from brilliant source material, and that the unsung efforts of bands like Paradise form the ground upon which he stands. “Sizzling” encapsulates what every DJ/producer should aspire to: a dancefloor firestarter that might open listeners to music they never knew they needed.

Last FM Information on Daphni

Please note the information is done on a artist keyword match and data is provided by LastFM.
There are two artists known as Daphni: 1) Music project of Caribou's Dan Snaith. Daphni's debut album, Jiaolong, has been released on 8 October 2012 on Merge Records. "During the time I was making the Caribou album Swim, I'd fallen back in love with moments in small, dark clubs when a DJ puts on a piece of music that not only can you not identify, but that until you heard it you could not have conceived of existing," Snaith said. "Daphni tracks are rough and spontaneous … They're about working fast and intuitively, capturing the manic energy needed to start a track one afternoon, have it finished, and be playing it in a club that night." "I've been surprised by the number of transcendent moments that I, sober and in my mid-30s, have had in clubs in the last few years," Snaith said. "Set against the backdrop of bland and functional dance music there is a small world where dance music lives up to its potential to liberate, surprise and innovate. There's some magic in it still." 2) Female-fronted rock. An energitic, melodic, and expressive group out of Green Bay, Wisconsin, Daphni has a unique and distinctive original sound that will grow on you. With female fronted lead vocals and a solid backline of musicians, this album rocks! Read more on Last.fm.
