Trojans (Xaphoon Jones Remix) - Atlas Genius.
Trojans was the first song that Atlas Genius ever recorded, and what a way to introduce yourself to the world. It was without question my favourite song of 2011 (sorry M83), and I felt it was criminally overlooked in all of the major end-of-year-best-of lists.
Now, a year later, and with an impressive debut EP and easily the sexiest video of the year so far (in Back Seat) also under AG’s belts, Chiddy Bang’s production maestro, Xaphoon Jones proves that Trojans still has some legs, unleashing his deliciously destructive reworking of the track upon an unsuspecting blogosphere. It is pure electro evil, and you can download the beast here.
Darkness, I love you, but I have chosen Xaphoon.
