We're not going to sit here and pretend like anyone has a spare seven and a half hours to spend listening to a single recording of any kind, but we nonetheless felt compelled to alert you to the fact that Dan Snaith, the man behind both Caribou and Daphni, recently posted a live recording of said length to his SoundCloud account. The massive mix is a DJ set from Daphni's album release party for the excellent, XLR8R Pick'ed Jiaolong LP (a record that we profiled in extensive detail) in Peckham, London, during which he "performed with three Pioneer CDJ 2000s playing digital files, an E&S DJR400 mixer, and a Boss RE-20 Space Echo pedal." Snaith also says, "All 7.5 hours are here—warts and all. Apologies for the occasionally crunchy sound quality and periodic lapses in mixing. It's only split into two parts because it was too long to upload as one file." And there you have it, folks! An enormous live offering from one of the strongest and most interesting minds in dance music today, available for you to dive into via the player below.
