Xaphoon Jones is having a MOMENT. After killing 'em all summer long with more insane remixes than even we knew what to do with, Yung Xaph returns to the mixtape game with XJV3, the third and final installment in his mixtape trilogy. Fully loaded with more hits than a blotter sheet, it's the perfect curtain call to his illustrious remix career and an incredibly promising taste of things to come for the young beat architect. While you'll have to wait just a little bit longer for the whole thing, we're here to premiere our favorite cut for you today, as Xaph turns in what is quite possibly his finest remix to date on St. Lucia's "Closer Than This". Stripping the original down to its skivvies 'til it's just topless synths and bottomless beats, it's a tranquil starlit nightswim before the ocean-sized chorus comes crashing down without warning in a torrential downpour of space horns and lunar guitars. Swim at your own risk.
