For those of you who think we’re just becoming a Chiddy Bang fanblog….well, you’re kind of right. But after Chiddy and Xaphoon keep dropping flawless remixes of Cee-Lo, Darwin Deez, Ellie Goulding, etc., can you really blame us? The latest gem is their reworking of The Naked & Famous’ “Young Blood,” which seamlessly works the original vocals and 8-bit sounding synths in with Chiddy’s trademark pop-culture riddled verses.

As an added bonus, check out Chiddy and Theodore Grams freestyle over the adorably hateful “Bad Day,” marking the third time Xaphoon Jones has remixed Darwin Deez.

Most of you already know about Darwin Deez by now, but I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention the man here after catching him at Great Escape in Brighton a couple of weeks ago.  Some say his music falls victim to repetition, but Deez pulled off his set of quirky indie-pop jams with enough charm and flair (see: ridiculous 80’s music dance interludes) to make that a non-issue.  Get hooked on the Deez by checking out “Bad Day” and the Xaphoon Jones remix of “Radar Detector” (listen to the original on our last Valentine’s Day Mixtape).
