UNCUT - - New Albums I’m New Here - De facto sec­ond al­bum from Cari­bou’s techno al­ter ego SAM RICHARDS

As a trib­ute to the Lon­don night­club that helped lure him onto the dance­floor, Dan Snaith has used the oc­ca­sion of his de­but Fab­ric mix CD to pre­miere a set of brand-new Daphni ma­te­rial. The move nods to one of his DJ he­roes, Ri­cardo Vil­lalo­bos, who did the same thing with his Fab­ric mix in 2007, although Snaith’s take on min­i­mal­ist dance mu­sic is brighter and more im­me­di­ate. Where he does in­dulge his love of weird noises and world mu­sic sam­ples, they’re al­ways housed within a crisp rhyth­mic struc­ture. Cari­bou-es­que melodic frag­ments abound, bathed in the joy that ra­di­ates from pump­ing, disco-driven an­thems “Vs” and the cli­mac­tic “Fly Away”.
