The last time we teamed up with Franki Chan and his Check Yo Ponytail crew, the infamous Austin “mall party” Past Yo Bedtime was the result. Sooo… get ready to rage once again, with a FG takeover of the CYP monthly in Los Angeles on Tuesday, January 24th. Ayeeee!
Danny Brown headlines, and he’s bringing his Main Attrakionz homies along for the party. Party Supplies will be providing mega MPC action, and supreme deejay Thee Mike B will be holding it down on the turntables all night. (And of course, we couldn’t leave you without some special guests…) It’s an 18+ affair, get your tix now!
For the latest Foolcast, Sammy Bananas and Mike B put together their debut mix as Fifteenth, showcasing the same freewheeling disco house vibes that fuel their new EP on Fool’s Gold. Download and boogie!

Expert DJs and longtime Fool’s Gold friends Sammy Bananas and Thee Mike B woke up early on their born day and ran directly to the studio, whipping up a gang of brand-new dance tracks as a gift-wrapped present to us all. Fifteenth is the result, a production duo par excellence named after their shared day of birth, melding jacked-up East Coast disco house vibes with Westside pool-party funkiness. Their debut EP synthesizes the feel-good energy of Sammy and Mike’s solo DJ sets into some dank nugs of dance music perfectly suited for packed megaclubs and pajama jammy jams alike. L’chaim!
To the left of this picture (totally worthy of the Awesome People Hanging Out Together Tumblr) you’ll find our friend Thee Mike B, one of the finest, funnest DJs in all of Los Angeles. He recently guested on East Village Radio and spun all manner of new jams, including the premier of Fifteenth, his discoed-out collab with Sammy Bananas that’s dropping on Fool’s Gold very soon. Let the lvlz into your life…

Before the big FG Miami extravaganza this weekend, we figured why not warm things up with our friends?
RAP PARTY is just what you’d expect from the name: an afternoon of rap jams spun b2b from A-Trak and Craze, Busy P, Mehdi and Brodinski, Nick Catchdubs and Dave Nada, and Sammy Bananas and (Thee) Mike B. It goes down from 3-8pm at The Standard and is free with a donation to the Red Cross’ Japan relief efforts. We’ll see you there!
