Blow Up (Xaphoon Jones ColeStep Remix)” (Right click + “Save link as” to DL)

Here We Go (AC Slater Remix)” (Right click + “Save link as” to DL)

Arrsome! I am smitten with sounds of Chiddy Bang producer, Xaphoon Jones. Here is his second mixtape and it’s definitely what you would expect out of Xaphoon. Some songs bother me because they’re really good but so short. For example, “But Beyonce Had One Of The Best Videos Of All Time!” is one of the best songs on there (in my opinion), but it’s only :51 seconds long! Gah. Bother. My two favorites on the mixtape are “Blow Up”, a J.Cole remix which just slaughters the original, and “Here We Go (AC Slater Remix)”, which is a remix of Chiddy Bang’s song. Sooo sick. “Dancing With the DJ” is cool too. Love it.

Heatwave (feat. Mac Miller)” (Right click + “Save link as” to DL)

Can someone please tell Chiddy Bang to stop being so awesome? Because I really can’t stand it anymore. This is incredible. Classic Xaphoon Jones 8-bit/electro sound mixed with the epic Motown classic “Heat Wave”. But wait, there’s more! A Mac Miller feature! This is way to cool for school. This is just SO. GOOD. Wow! Congrats on another killer track, Chiddy!

“Stop Pretending” – The Friendly Giant

“Stop Pretending” (Click to DL)

AMAZING mashup! Wowza. This mashup artist, The Friendly Giant, emailed me this track. I get a lot of mashup submissions, some good, some not so good. This one really surprised me, cause it is pretty fawesome. It’s almost strange how well the four songs fit together so coherently.  The Friendly Giant uses Chiddy Bang’s “Opposite of Adults”, B.o.B & Hayley Williams’ “Airplanes”, Oasis’ “Wonderwall”, and “Fireflies” by Owl City. You may not believe that these four songs mesh so well, but you really must listen. Must. You must.

“Don’t Worry, Be Happy” – Chiddy Bang

Take “Don’t Worry, Be Happy” home.

Chiddy Bang did a Billboard (no not Jillboard, the OTHER guy…) “Mashup Monday”, a new weekly occurrance that makes Billboard look “hip”, even though they do not approve of mashup artists… Anyway, it came out really great, as usual with Chiddy Bang. Chiddy freestyles from a list of fan-written ideas while Xaphoon plays the guitar in the background. It’s a great, unplugged song from the usually “plugged” duo. By the way, I am in no way affiliated with Billboard. My Top 100 is MY Top 100. MY. Key word. MINE. It’s music that I think should be out there on a Top 100 list, so I just went ahead and made my own. Why wait for someone else to do it when I could be building an empire? WAM BAM!

Click to DL “Young Blood (The Naked & Famous Remix)”

Click to DL “Here We Go”

The first is “Young Blood (The Naked & Famous Remix)”. I’m not sure why it’s naked or famous, or both for that matter, but I do know it is ear noms. The instrumental is really cool and electronic, and yet it’s still a pretty chill song with a Passion Pit-ey sounding chorus.

The second is called “Here We Go” and is more upbeat and features Q-Tip. This song has my favorite kind of instrumental by Xaphoon Jones. It sounds like those arcade games down at the Jersey Shore. I’m such a crane-machine nerd, it’s awful. I would play crane-machines with Xaphoon Jones any day. The chorus has an almost dubstep-ish instrumental, which obviously only adds to the awesomeness of this new Chiddy song.

Chiddy is so cool it’s unbearable.

Take “Worry About You (Xaphoon Jones Remix)” home.

Well I love Xaphoon Jones (1/2 of Chiddy Bang)…and I love 2AM Club…. Yup, this works. Take an alternative pop song and add a synthy/electronic instrumental and you get “Worry About You (Remix)”! Still has the smooth, harmonized vocals of the 2AM guys, but now it sounds coooool. Xaphoon Jones’ remixes always make me want to play Super Mario. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, listen to his music.

“The ‘Fuck You’ Remix” – Chiddy Bang

Take “The ‘Fuck You’ Remix” home.

Chiddy keeps spewing out more and more music and it’s great! The boys covered Cee-Lo Green’s hot new single “Fuck You”, which is definitely going to be one of the top songs of 2010. They sampled/sped up the piano and chorus and added a great beat and synth instrumental. In simpler terms, it sounds like video games and chipmunks. Either way, it sounds great. I can’t say it’s better than the original though, especially because the original has an amazing music video. If you haven’t seen the music video, soil spoil yourself and watch it here.
