Producer Dan Snaith juggles two alter egos, Caribou and Daphni. While last year seemed devoted to the former, 2015 looks to mark the return of the latter. In May, Snaith debuted a brand new Daphni track on BBC Radio 1. Now, he’s let loose another in “Vikram”.

Whereas his previous offering evoked ’70s “Funkytown” feels, this latest jam sounds as though it was coughed up by a Jetsons-era robot on some serious drugs. Punctuated by flailing beep and bleeps galore, it’ll have your head spinning in no time. Listen/download it below.

Snaith’s last Daphni album was 2012’s Jiaolong; his last Caribou album was 2014’s excellent Our Love.
