XAPHOON JONES – The Jackson Pit (Passion Pit vs The Jackson 5)
Xaphoon Jones is otherwise known as Noah B, otherwise known as half of Chiddy Bang. As Xaphoon, he has produced and released a couple of mixtapes consisting of remixes, dance mixes, mashups and a smattering of original compositions with various guests, approaching electronic glitz with a summery feel that screams out of your stereo at this time of year.
His latest effort contains this gloriously concocted fusion of electro rockers Passion Pits ‘Sleepyhead’ and Jackson Fives ‘I Want You Back’. The feelgood careening around every corner of the two tracks bring a surprisingly fresh angle to a classic Motown hit and a modern dancefloor filler, shaking my heart, feet soul and head all at once.
