We welcome Sammy Bananas to our list of blog contributors, as he checks in from his Brooklyn lair…
The Summer Solstice may be 10 days away, but as it was 99 degrees in NYC today I think we can safely say that the season has officially jumped off. And what better way to celebrate the start of summer than with…BANANAS! I’ll be traveling around over the next two weeks killing dancehalls in Vancouver, SF, LA, Chi and Milwaukee, and I made a mix for this Summer of Sammy tour. It features a heap of exclusive material, including the 4 tracks from my upcoming Braids & Fades EP (coming out soon!) Bump it on your way to the beach, while macking honey-dips, while wearing this, or sweating in your hot ass apartment. Mix link, tracklist and full tour dates after the jump!
This evening (Wed 5/28) you can check out our man Sammy Bananas at the Riverdeck in Philly (417 N. Columbus Blvd – RSVP here) rocking the “Block Party” party with the Philadelphyinz. Good times. If you prefer “buying things” to “nightlife” – hell, maybe like me you enjoy both! – Sammy’s High Top Fades is out now, and it’s sequel, Braids & Fades is on its way, along with thesesnazzy t-shirts.
Check our man Sammy Bananas this Saturday at Savalas in Brooklyn, DJing with Caps of Caps N Jones. Sam will be dropping party favors like “All The Girls” (and joints off his forthcoming Fool’s Gold 12″) since the night also doubles as his birthday celebration. Go easy on the noogies (or don’t).
When we went up to Vancouver for the “Screaming Bloody Murder” tour, Paul Devro posted up an mp3 of Sammy Bananas’ “All The Girls,” a fun lil remix built off NERD’s “Everyone Nose,” on the Mad Decent blog. Download it here for some handy digitized summer fun, and check back for new Sammy joints very soon.
One afternoon while in Miami for WMC, a bunch of us Fool’s Gold folks were interviewed by the homie Red Foxx for Karmaloop.TV and took the opportunity to plug new releases and spit banter. The clip is up now, check it out for exclusive previews of Jokers Of The Scene’s “Baggy Bottom Boys” and Lindsay Lohan anecdotes.
The Fool’s Gold x Dim Mak “Screaming Bloody Murder” North American tour kicks off this Thursday, and in case the above trailer by the Thunder Horse bros didn’t make it crystal clear, we are coming to your town to EXPLODE YOUR BRAIN.
