Sammy Bananas has been keeping Fool’s Gold funky since the label first began. Yet all his smash bootlegs, remixes and original jams (both as a solo artist and as one half of FG duos Fifteenth and Telephoned) were merely setting the stage for the brand new Flexin’ EP, a back-to-the-future blast of house, disco and R&B vibes blended together as only one Banana man can. It’s a master class in party music from a scholar of New Jack Swing.
As if these hybrid cuts weren’t fun enough on their own, we’ve pressed Flexin’ onto limited-edition colored vinyl, complete with mustachioed “Mr. Flex” cutout figure (designed by RAZAUNO) for maximum DIY dance party action. Sammy Bananas is in the house, literally in your house. Peep some action shots of Mr. Flex with A-Trak, Chromeo and more after the jump…
Preorder the vinyl now and we’ll send you mp3s of the EP as an early-bird bonus. Members of our drip.fm subscription service THE GOLDMINE get the release immediately as well (WAVs too, if that’s yer thing.) Come party with us on Wednesday, January 15th at the Flexin’ NYC release party at The 303 with tunes by Sammy, Nick Catchdubs and DJ Lindsey.

Dancefloor heroes Oliver follow up their finely tuned Mechanical EP with a surprising new remix collection that casts their already-diverse originals in a stunning new light. Kicking off with a stomping, fan favorite mix of “Night Is On My Mind” by festival king Dillon Francis, Mechanical Remixes shifts into even higher gear with Nom De Strip’s big room take on “Control,” before pulling a moody left turn with Tchami’s housey (dare we say jazzy!) version of “MYB,” and closing out strong with a high-NRG remix of “Mechanical” by new young producer Values. Machine music never sounded so good! Get it now on iTunes.

Anna Lunoe’s hypnotic solo single “Breathe” is a welcome, futuristic take on classic dance vibes. Having spent years as an in-demand collaborator and skilled festival DJ, Anna’s body-moving bonafides are without question. Yet “Breathe” manages to showcase another side of her as an artist altogether, channeling the emotion of vintage house 12″s and the sweat of MTV’s The Grind while bringing it up to date for a new generation of glowstick-ers. Released on the cusp of Anna’s US tour with alt R&B superstar The Weeknd and a slate of non-stop international touring, we’ll be sure to hear the deep, anthemic “Breathe” ringing out of speakers all year long. Get it now exclusively on Beatport from Fool’s Gold / Ultra Music.

Queens rap collective World’s Fair kick holes in speakers worldwide with their debut album Bastards Of The Party, available now for free download at foolsgoldrecs.com/worldsfair.
The album is a futuristic boom-bap collage from six truly unique crew MCs, seamlessly weaving party-crushing cuts like “B.O.T.P.” and “Get Out” alongside raw-nerve confessionals, late night rollers and straight up BARS. From the anthemic “96 Knicks” to the introspective closer “Blacklisted,” Bastards Of The Party is a self-assured, infinitely listenable mission statement heralding World’s Fair’s arrival as the new New York crew to watch.
