Dan Snaith says mix is a "history of my life"
Caribou, aka Dan Snaith, has shared a 1,000 track mixtape with fans as a thank you for supporting his latest album ‘Our Love’.
Snaith posted a link to the mixtape, which is made up entirely of non-Caribou material, earlier today. The tracklist includes songs by My Bloody Valentine, Jay Z, Nina Simone, Four Tet, Wire and Kraftwerk among many, many others.
A statement released alongside the mix reads as follows: “The last few years of my life have been incredible, thanks in large part to all of you – so I’ve been thinking of how to say thank you. As you can imagine, music has been a central love of my life since I was a teenager and over the years I’ve been introduced to a lot that has stayed with me. I’ve collected the majority of that music here – and I thought sharing it with you seemed like one way I could say thanks. I’m sure some things are under-represented or over-represented, but roughly speaking this is a musical history of my life. “
Caribou will play a a London headline show at O2 Academy Brixton in March, as well as a headline slot at this year’s Field Day festival in June.
