Sammy Bananas of ATRAKs Fools Gold label and the other headliner on the treasure fingers show this friday at Pawn Shop, is on fire right now!!!!
Just finished remixing Nothing 2 step 2 by Thunderheist and ill let you be the judge over at his MY SPACE but i think he really out did himself on this one and thats big as Sammy tunes have regular rotation in my sets and many others acorss the globe. Heres the low down on the man Sammy Bananas!
Rising Brooklyn remixer and party maestro Sammy Bananas lives up to his name by crafting ecstatic tracks that ditch trendy production tricks in favor of pure pop satisfaction. He's already remixed the likes of Chromeo and 45 King, and his latest Fool's Gold EP Braids & Fades is a tribute to the biker-shorted divas of the 1990s, chopping up their r&b hits into uptempo club tracks. 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?!?" The new record is a follow up to the equally catchy and early 90s rooted High Top Fades EP which saw release in late 2007.
Early in this year, Sammy stunned the DJ community with his inventive bootleg of N.E.R.D's "Everyone Nose" which he rechristened as "All The Girls." He debuted the remix on the Screaming Bloody Murder tour in which he traveled North America with A-Trak, Sinden and Steve Aoki. The track was played across the world and became a staple in sets by heavyweights like A-Trak and Flosstradamus. Sammy is always working on new material, so keep on the lookout for his remix of Tittsworth's "WTF" coming out on T&A Records as well as his take on Trackademic's "Enjoy What You Do" dropping later this fall on Fool's Gold. Sammy continues to spread his net ever further with a European tour this October, and a trip to Australia planned for early '09.
"Sammy IS straight up bananas. He ripped it at LAX and I can't wait to have him back!"
- DJ AM
"Wow I love these! I don't know which one to play on the radio!"
- Annie Mac
"In a musical climate where so many DJs and producers are doing the same thing as the next guy, Sammy Bananas is a breath of fresh air. His music is full of character and can be best described by one word: funky"
Heres some freebees for ya'll courtesy of Sammy himself!
