Dan Snaith is better known as Caribou. So you may be forgiven not making any connection between that body of work and this. However, on this form Caribou might be a thing of the past as this is a solid collection of dance riffs and tunes.
Each track starts out with a beat and riff and then kind of explodes into action. Listen to the snippet of Yes I Know on this page and you don't hear the moment ten seconds after the fade out where it explodes into life with horns and vocals. Its this layered approach which keeps you interested and eventually leaving the tracks in your consciousness. Pairs is another fine example with its African influence obvious from the start and then its turns into a house music track. This is an album with lots of influences from Africa, Miami House and soul. But at its heart its a great dance collection
Snaith may have made his name as Caribou. This will push him further forward. Its a great collection and for my money better than anything he has delivered before.
