Reliably informed

As one of the UK’s most respected leftfield music venues, it’s only right that World Headquarters continues to attract some of the most exciting new and established acts to its authentically underground confines. Last year saw the likes of Floating Points and Four Tet play to a packed out crowd and the latest addition to the club’s latest all night long events roster comes from another of the world’s most respected DJs, with Daphni (a.k.a. Dan Snaith) playing on Thursday 9th March in another remarkable coup for the club.

As the leader of Caribou, Snaith has released six albums of colourful, well-crafted and complex electronic music. In 2016 he dazzled festival crowds as a multi-instrumentalist band-leader whilst touring Caribou’s brilliant last album Our Love, generating some of the most euphoric and uplifting scenes of the summer gig calendar. Under the Daphni moniker, Snaith swaps his drum kit and microphone for a more stripped back setup and a more directly house-driven sound. His debut LP as Daphni, Jaiolong, was nominated for a Polaris Music Prize and received critical acclaim for its eclectic combinations of electronic sub-genres and off-beat styles, adding to his reputation as a musical wizard who knows no creative boundaries.

Daphni is at World HQ, Newcastle on Thursday 9th March.
