Sammy Bananas "High Top Fades" Promo Mix

Posted on Oct 29th, 2007 in Downloads > Releases > Shopaholics by Mr. Goldbar

Our boy Sammy just dropped this mix to help promote his new 12″ on Fool’s Gold (which you can buy on vinyl at Turntable Lab and cop digitally from our Snocap store). It’s pretty damn FRESHHHHHHH, here’s what he had to say about it:

“I made this mix as a companion to “High Top Fades,” my new Fool’s Gold EP. The tracks on the EP are all dancefloor remixes of early 90’s hits, and working on the songs gave me the idea of making a mix themed around selections in the Hip-Pop cannon from this era. In particular, the mix highlights artists who sported the hair style referenced in the title. Its 55 minutes of fly hair and fresh beats to take you back to your 6th grade dance. Or take me back at least…”

And here’s what TTLab had to say about the 12″:

“As one half of the DJ duo Certified Bananas, Sammy Bananas has been bringing his style-swapping dancefloor mania to crowds around the country for the past few years. Now, he’s linked up with A-Trak & Catchdubs’ Fool’s Gold label and is branching out into producing club jams of his own. On High Top Fades, young Sammy melds the spirit of his DJ sets into four imaginative, uptempo reworks of 90s dancefloor classics. He transforms “Here Comes The Hotstepper” into a 126 BPM bassline monster (“Tha Stepper(1)”) perfect for mixing with the likes of Diplo and Switch. Funny house hit “Funk Dat” is given the Bmore treatment as “Dat Funk(2).” K7’s jock jam “Come Baby Come” gets doused in rocket fuel (“K7 Baby(3)”), and the Fresh Prince’s perennial “Summertime” is turned into the off-kilter banger “Summer Bounce(4).” Sam proves here that creative production can still be infinitely crowd pleasing. These mixes are gonna be huge from now until the NEXT 90s revival. Limited edition.”
