CRITIC REVIEWS

80
NME

Ultimately, ‘Jialong’ is the sound of a producer having the time of his life – and boy oh boy is that infectious. 

75
Pitchfork

Daphni's less focused moments sound like Snaith taking a toy off the shelf, Slinky-style, bending and prodding it at his leisure. 

72
Beats Per Minute

It’s flooded with spongy rhythms and haywire electroplay, and the creativity hanging around in the margins of these songs almost makes it seems like Snaith is teasing us or even fooling around. 

70
Drowned in Sound

Jiaolong is a 48 minute love-affair with the dancefloor, the sound of someone’s life passion being refreshed over and over again.

60
Consequence of Sound

In totally brushing aside the complexities of Caribou in order to make dance music, he loses sight of the more complex moments in the dance music he’s making.

89
The big singles - Ahora & Ye Ye are the biz from Mr Caribou, Dan Snaith.
