After a successful string of remixes along with an EP out on OWSLA, Los Angeles duo, Phantoms, has followed up with yet another high profile remix; this time taking on the chart-topping single, “Reflektor,” from Arcade Fire.

Phantoms create a deep roller with this remix of “Papi Pacify” — definitely a heads down hands up tune ready for any dark after after party. Keep close watch on these guys providing their output gets consistent.
