Xaphoon Jones

January 13, 2011

Xaphoon Jones isn’t just the skilled DJ/producer in Chiddy Bang. He’s got some real talent when it comes to sampling so it makes sense that he’s a skilled mashup artist too. The Xaphoon Jones Mixtape Vol II is slated to come out some time in February. I’m ready now, and if you haven’t heard his work, here’s why (from Vol I). As he’s done for Chiddy Bang, Xaphoon builds a beat out of a Passion Pit song. Instead of throwing Chiddy on the verse, he throws Biggie on it and as an afterthought, throws Beyonce’s “Single Ladies” into the bridge.

Yet again Radiohead’s “Reckoner” is being matched to Kanye’s verse. What makes this a new and worthwhile experience: Kanye is actually rapping in this one, not to mention Lupe Fiasco’s verse on this song. And Xaphoon throws in his trademark synths in to remix this as he makes it a beat.

  1. If the original Radiohead song had those synths, I’d actually listen to it.
