Here’s the upside to recording music under two distinct monikers: you can totally remix yourself and it doesn’t have to include some variation of the irksome phrase “self remix”. Canadian electronic musician Dan Snaith is reaping just such rewards by remixing his Caribou single “Our Love” under his EDM alter ego Daphni. Question: is this a tax write-off somehow?
The Daphni mix isn’t markedly different from the original mix. The same pulsing bass and wobbling electronics still dominate the soundscape, but Snaith has sped up some parts and smoothed out the edges in other. The result is something that feels a little more steady and playful, and is slightly better suited for dance floors thanks to those now shinier rhythms and grooves.
Listen in below.
“Our Love” serves as the title track to
Daphni Caribou’s sixth studio album, due out October 7th via Mute.
