Watch the new video for 'Ahora' below

As if he hadn't already given enough with his debut outing as Daphni, Dan Snaith celebrated the release of Jiaolong be playing a mammoth 7.5 hour-long set to a sold-out crowd at Peckham's Bussey Building last month. He's now posted the set on his Soundcloud - have a listen below:

In our interview with Snaith last week, he had this to say about DJing: "I think the key is that I don't have an idea in my head. When I go to a club I have no idea what tracks I'm going to play. I bring a bunch of music and then, it's kind of... It's funny actually, having done all these live shows over the years, I've become confident enough that I don't get nervous before shows, because I know that if something goes wrong we'll just figure it out. That's exciting and fun, and the shows are almost better when we rehearse less for them, becuase we have this sense of tension. But then DJ sets I start getting really nervous for - the first few big ones I did I thought 'Things could go horribly wrong here, I haven't planned this at all'."

He's also just released a new video, for album track 'Ahora'. It's been directed by Jane Eastlight, who also did the visuals for 'Ye Ye' - have a watch below:
