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.
