Perhaps Joli Mai was conceived with that in mind—11 tracks from Fabriclive 93 feature on the LP alongside a full-length version of "Vulture" from Midland's Fabriclive 94. That's good news for any DJs who fancy using "Joli Mai" to give their sets some extra bounce, or closing one in the same way Snaith did on Fabriclive 93 with the beautifully woozy end-of-nighter "Life's What You Make It." That's possibly the only reason to buy Joli Mai if you don't already have Fabriclive 93, which has more tunes and works a little better as a listening experience.
Even so, Joli Mai covers a wide range of styles. "Carry On" and "Medellin" are strong deep house tracks. "Face To Face"'s stripped-back bass and drums show his love of jerky funk. "Hey Drum"'s shameless rave breakdown is pure sugar-rush fun. It might have been nice to have full versions of Fabriclive 93 tracks like the brassy disco stomp of "Vs," but otherwise there's little here to complain about—especially for those already won over by Daphni's debut album, 2012's JIAOLONG. The Fabriclive mix was much more than the sum of its parts, but to have some of its best tracks available in this way makes for both a solid album and a chance to wonder what you could build with them yourself.
