sammy-bananas

The moustache clad producer/dj Sammy Bananas started out in Boston together with a fella named Max as the duo Certified Bananas (they did a smashing mix for us in Discobelle back in 2006 called “Sweden On Blast”).

Sammy moved down to Brooklyn, became part of the Fool’s Gold Records crew, and continues to douse out magical and funky club jams that manages to pay respect to the classic house/disco sound but also stays ahead of the curve.

This mix for us in Discobelle was made at the same time as Sammy wrecked havoc on SXSW and WMC, we’re super glad he took the time out to churn out one seriously amazing mix that should have you dancing well into the summer.

PS. Those of you located in NYC, check out Sammy together with Gigamesh and Cassian at the Good Room in Brooklyn this Friday.

Be sure to keep an eye out for their upcoming debut EP Velvet, out May 25th via Killing Moon Records & B3SCI.
