FOOL'S GOLD WEEK EXCLUSIVE: Sammy Bananas - Ladies (Download)
All this week we’ll be releasing exclusive goodness from our partners at Fool's Gold, who have a bevy of hot records coming out soon. Check back every day for more tunes, and if you like what you hear, make sure to go cop some records and threads over at their store.
Rising Brooklyn remixer and party maestro Sammy Bananas lives up to his name by crafting ecstatic tunes that shy from trendy production tricks in favor of pure pop satisfaction. Having already remixed the likes of Chromeo and 45 King, his latest Fool's Gold EP, Braids & Fades, is a tribute to the biker-shorted divas of the nineties, chopping up their R&B hits into uptempo club slams. The approach has already made fans out of influential BBC DJ Annie Mac and platinum producer will.i.am, who ran up to the DJ booth at Sammy's last LA show to shout "YOU made this?!?" Today Fool's Gold has hooked you up with "Ladies", a particularly vogue-y highlight from Braids & Fades.
There are more SB tunes on the way, including a remix of Trackademicks' forthcoming Fool's Gold single "Enjoy What You Do." You can cop Braids & Fades (as well as last year's High Top Fades) digitally and on wax at Turntable Lab. This week and next you can also check out Sammy on his European tour, which kicks off Thursday in Oslo. He's made a nice little minimix to promote it; you can download that here alongside all his tour stops.
