A ton of y’all got to witness the jam power of Sammy Bananas in person as he crossed the country with Chromeo, opening the first leg of their When The Night Falls Tour. But did you get to see him bust out the saxophone during “You’re So Gangsta”? Fret not, we got footage.
For more from our multitalented, mustachio-ed bro, check his recent work scoring clips for Red Bull and Adidas, as well as his latest Telephoned mixtape, Good Call and his FG release with Mike B as Fifteenth.
Check out the new Freaky Tales mixtape from Ohio’s own Freaky Franz, mixed by FG’s Sammy Bananas. It features a few Telephoned-related guest spots (including the Sammy-produced “Imma Freak”. Trappy Bananas!) but the majority of the tracks feature beats from Franz himself, a hardcore kid / skater turnt rapper whose been making noise throughout the Midwest. Stay tuned for more. Read More
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!
Listen to two new, very different jams from the Sammy lab: first up is a sax-gone-wild mix for Lars Moston’s “Too Much Party Time” on Malente’s No Brainer label. Next is a darkly poppy take on Blind Benny’s “Bad Dreams.” Sam-step? Check em both out – and while you’re at it, look out for Sammy on the Chromeo “When The Night Falls” tour, and get ready for Fifteenth (his collaboration with Mike B) dropping on Fool’s Gold soon.
