Taking to his Facebook page Noah Beresin aka Xaphoon Jones has officially left as one of the founding members of the Chiddy Bang duo.
It was a rather short and sincere messaging outlining that you might have missed Xaphoon at the live shows since November as he was ultimately “elsewhere, where I am happiest: In the studio”
Xaphoon has over the past twelve months solidified himself as a go-to for cracking remixes having re-worked Everything Everything, St Lucia, Atlas Genius and Tinnie Tempah.
Xaphoon Jones will play this years Splendour in the Grass alongside James Blake, Flume, The Presets, Klaxons and a host of others.

Dear friends and family, after a large amount of traveling, and a lot of fun, and about 3 years – it is time that I resign from the hip-hop duo that I was a part of.
I stopped playing in Chiddy’s live shows last November, so if you go to a show, and don’t see me, don’t be confused! I’m elsewhere, where I am happiest: In the studio.
I will continue to be producing tons and tons of music for other people, and hopefully you guys will continue to enjoy it.
Huge thank you to anyone who came to a show or downloaded a song.
