Please accept this token and we hope you will join us one night where we will be rockin’ that sh*t like… Grab the mix here and check the tracklist below.

Telephoned was born one night in Brooklyn when our very own Sammy Bananas and his singin’ friend Maggie Horn decided to record their own version of T-Pain’s “Can’t Believe It.” It wasn’t a remix, it wasn’t a cover, but it was fun as hell – we premiered it, and “Can’t Believe It” quickly became a DJ favorite, even making it into mix rotation on Power 106 in LA! “Pop Champagne” is their follow-up, turning Ron Browz’ rap hit into a spacey dancefloor gem (“Bottle service electro meets Triplets Of Belleville” says Ms Horn). More reworks are on their way, but grab this one now thanks to our friends at RCRD LBL.
