The result makes for a listening experience that plays like a thoughtfully sequenced record, rather than a mix in itself.
Loud and Quiet
There are definitely smoother mixes in the Fabriclive’s distinguished archive, but despite the odd rough misstep, few capture the freedom, impulse and palpable sense of fun as Daphni does here. A set for the ages, if not the purists.

Soulful yet sensational, Fabriclive 93 is a consuming mix that marks the intersection of Snaith's dance floor personas — and powerfully so.


Most impressive of all ... is how Fabriclive 93 feels like a perpetual loop of creativity. Not only is it a special volume of Fabric's impressive series, it's a living piece of music that presents Daphni at its most vital.

A few occasional seconds of tonal whiplash are a small price to pay to go on this roller-coaster ride with Daphni. ‘FABRICLIVE 93’ is a mix that’d feel as at home in the club as it would being listened to alone with headphones.
‘Fabriclive 93’ is the perfect soundtrack from Friday night into Saturday morning. It encapsulates everything a good night out should consist of.
Resident Advisor
Years into his Daphni project, Snaith can still make familiar dance music sound fun all over again.
In his first Fabric mix under his Daphni alias, Caribou’s Dan Snaith zigzags his way through an eclectic set of edits and original productions.

fabriclive 93 might not be flawless—but it sure is fun.

Under The Radar
On his latest record as Daphni, Dan Snaith has the pulse of the U.K. club scene in the palm of his hand, creating a timeless ode to a genre he loves.
The 405
As an entry to the Fabriclive series, Daphni’s is a worthy one, capturing a talented party connoisseur in his most comfortable zone. It is a condensed but still very enjoyable facsimile of Snaith's multi-faceted, technical and tasteful dancefloor oriented abilities.
Crack Magazine
If anything, there is so much deployed across these tracks that it can be hard to find focus or a clear musical definition that characterises the overarching palette of the mix. But the sound palette Snaith has developed over the years is a colourful one, and his mastery of so many disparate parts of music leaves this one consistently interesting for 70 minutes – no mean feat.
