DJ/Indiepop artist Caribou dropped his BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix the other day and it was fantastic. So we’re posting it here. Check what he had to say about it (and a tracklisting) below;

“Right now is an exciting time for me, with a new album about to come out and a world tour about to kick off. But it also means I’ll be taking a break from all the DJing I’ve been doing as Daphni over the last few years. So this mix incorporates some of the music I’ve been playing in my DJ sets over the last little while and also some of the music I’ve been making. It features exclusive new music from friends of mine, Joy Orbison & Boddika, Pearson Sound, Les Sins, Anthony Naples and two new tracks from me under my Daphni alias. It was a lot of fun to record – I hope you enjoy it!” – Dan Snaith (aka Caribou & Daphni), October 2014.
