Summer of Sammy! Brooklyn’s resident sax house maestro is back with “BLO,” his funkiest track yet – and the first in a series of singles leading up to SB’s debut full-length LP. This one’s a heater, flipping classic drum machine grooves and New Jack Swing snares for a new generation. B-side “Pal Sammy” keeps it cheeky on the late night tip, making this double-stuffed single a must have on warm weather playlists worldwide.
Grab it now on Fool’s Gold, and celebrate the release with Sammy at Trophy Bar in Brooklyn this Saturday, 7/9 with The Whooligan (Soulection) and more. Check the flyer after the jump!

On last year’s FG single “Money Time,” Sammy Bananas introduced the neo-diva vocals of Antony & Cleopatra to the world. They’ve just now reconnected in the form of “Sirens,” a chill house cut out now on iTunes. Stay tuned for more heat from all three!

Sammy Bananas has been out on the road in support of his current single “Money Time” (on iTunes now, nudge nudge, wink wink) but that doesn’t mean he hasn’t been keeping busy in between gigs! Check out his latest bootleg, a housed-up rework of Rae Sremmurd’s ratchet ballad “No Type,” as well as a 45 minute mix for DC’s long-running Blisspop.

Sammy Bananas means business. This Fool’s Gold OG has proven himself as a master of the club jam, writing tunes that pay respect to dance music’s past while simultaneously charting it’s quirky, funky future. “Money Time” is his latest hybrid single, weaving vocals from new school divas Antony & Cleopatra over a chunky, pulsating slice of piano house. It’s as dancefloor (and dare we say, radio) ready as anything from the likes of Duke Dumont or Kiesza, but with a pleasantly odd heart that’s 100% Sammy. The remixes are no slouch either: peak-time heat from festival mainstay Wax Motif, jacking vibes courtesy Colorado’s Option4, and a wonky, unclassifiable bass version from Durkin that’s already a FG favorite, keeping this “Money Time” package paid in full.

Sammy Bananas has been busy cooking it up in the studio and just dropped a crisp and well done track, “Pan Seared”.
