Boy, Xaphoon Jones (the other side of Chiddy Bang) is on a remix binge. Yesterday, we posted about his remix for Meek Mills’ “Amen.” Today we have a remix of him taking on New York via South African power house St. Lucia. Usually known for his big productions with lavish hooks and bombastic vocals, St. Lucia serenades us instead in “Closer Than This.” The track’s synth heavy and percussion driven track is absolutely chill. So rather than completely distorting that vibe and adding his usual flare for frantic beats, Xaphoon goes along for the sensual ride. But that doesn’t mean you still don’t get his killer production accentuations on the track.
Xaphoon Jones’ remix of St. Lucia’s “Closer Than This” will be available on his Xaphoon Jones Mixtape Vol. III which drops today.
