Sammy Bananas "Flexin’" EP Vinyl Pre-Order + NYC Release Party 1/15

Posted on Jan 9th, 2014

Sammy Bananas has been keeping Fool’s Gold funky since the label first began. Yet all his smash bootlegs, remixes and original jams (both as a solo artist and as one half of FG duos Fifteenth and Telephoned) were merely setting the stage for the brand new Flexin’ EP, a back-to-the-future blast of house, disco and R&B vibes blended together as only one Banana man can. It’s a master class in party music from a scholar of New Jack Swing.

As if these hybrid cuts weren’t fun enough on their own, we’ve pressed Flexin’ onto limited-edition colored vinyl, complete with mustachioed “Mr. Flex” cutout figure (designed by RAZAUNO) for maximum DIY dance party action. Sammy Bananas is in the house, literally in your house. Peep some action shots of Mr. Flex with A-Trak, Chromeo and more after the jump…

Preorder the vinyl now and we’ll send you mp3s of the EP as an early-bird bonus. Members of our drip.fm subscription service THE GOLDMINE get the release immediately as well (WAVs too, if that’s yer thing.) Come party with us on Wednesday, January 15th at the Flexin’ NYC release party at The 303 with tunes by Sammy, Nick Catchdubs and DJ Lindsey.

Telephoned "Nearly Lost You"

Posted on Jan 11th, 2013


The free Telephoned EP Singles is the duo’s grunge valentine, covering cuts from Cameron Crowe’s soundtrack over Ryan Hemsworth beats. Sammy and Maggie turned Seattle rockers into R&B slow jams in the process (even CC himself approves, tweeting at Telephoned to do “Dyslexic Heart” and “State Of Love And Trust” next!) and now they’ve dropped a video for their take on Screaming Trees’ “Nearly Lost You” (put together by our own Josh Wehle).

Telephoned play live at Cameo in Brooklyn on Sunday, January 20th, alongside Cookies and Tubetops. Go vibe out with them! And check out Telephoned’s U Don’t Have To Call (more “cover ups,” this time over Clams Casino beats) and their “Last Time” single for even more.
