When the Canadian electronic musician Dan Snaith isn't making psych-pop as Caribou, he moonlights as a DJ and producer under the name Daphni. In 2012, Snaith released Daphni's only studio effort, Jaiolong, which was shortlisted for the 2013 Polaris Prize. As Daphni, Snaith was also credited as being an early champion of outsider pop-sensation William Onyeabor, when he remixed the Nigerian musician's track "When the Going Is Smooth and Good." Now, the Canadian prodigy producer will take Daphni on a short 6-show tour, including a secret show in San Francisco, and a slot on the Four Tet-curated Shine Hall Expo mini-festival.
This past summer, Snaith dropped his newest Daphni track, the Bollywood-tinged "Vikram." Listen to it and his Onyeabor-sampled track "Ye Ye" below.
