Caribou mastermind Dan Snaith has announced he'll be the latest contributor to the long-running FABRICLIVE mix series, under his club music-focused Daphni alias.

Out July 21, FABRICLIVE93 features 23 new tracks and four edits from the Canadian producer, whose last full-length LP under the moniker was 2012's Jiaolong. He's also shared the album's funk-infused lead track, "Face to Face."

In a press release, Snaith said the decision to feature original material was inspired by past editions by Omar-S and Shackleton, and that he's visited fabric "ten or fifteen times over the years" to see Ricardo Villalobos play.

"I'm always drawn to the eccentrics in each field of music and I love that a club like fabric, that is such a mainstay of London's clubbing landscape, is also the de facto London home of dance music's foremost eccentric," explained the producer. "I've got a friend who is a longtime member of fabric and whenever Villalobos plays he gets in touch to see if I want to go. We usually meet out front at about 6am (having had a full, if truncated, night's sleep rather than having been out the night before) and then spend the next few hours inside."
