Oh Shnap. Beat School 101 With Xaphoon Jones of Chiddy Bang

If you partake in the mashup/remix/sampling mania, you may be familiar with Philadelphia's Chiddy Bang. Their beats are a sweet marriage of their own original hip hop + sampling of bands like Radiohead, Sufjan Stevens, Passion Pit, and MGMT.

If you haven't seen it yet, check out their awesome video for "Truth" (Passion Pit sample). These dudes have Style - love the animation.

Inspired? Then take a lesson in beats with Xaphoon Jones:

"Keep your eyes open for this one, because it goes by fast, so that before you know which kick-drum has been laid down, you've got a bona-fide jam on your hands, and your hands are still in the cookie jar. Make sure to keep up, because with Xaphoon in the beat pantry, you'll likely be eating nothing but crumbs. Rhythmic, danceable, freestyelable-over crumbs."
