With acid riffs and deep grooves the duo has elevated one of my favorite songs to dancefloor worthy status throwing in a healthy dose of funk, because who doesn’t like that? Check out a few of their other remixes after the jump for more Golden Pony goodness.

The entire series is beginning to take shape and the Simon & Garfunkel edit, in particular, has been one of the standouts. The Luxxury edit of “The Sound of Silence” was recently featured on two outstanding mixtapes: Goldroom – Verano Mix 2013 and Tronik Youth – Staring at The Sea Vol.3.
