AUS PREMIERE: Sammy Bananas ‘Decade of Bootlegs ’03-’13’ Mix


Signed to A-TRAK‘s Fool’s Gold Records label, Brooklyn’s SAMMY BANANAS is renowned for his danceable brand of remixed house.

Non-pretentious self-proclaimed nostalgia abounds on this 50 minute mixtape consisting entirely of original bootleg remixes spanning the last decade of SAMMY‘s career.

R&B samples, jangly tribal rhythms and retro pop flavours throughout, this is 50 minutes of upbeat dance-floor filling goodness. Seamless transitions and lots of sampled melodic hooks herein.

The best comes in the final 10 minutes, with delightful soaring R&B and synths. In SAMMY B‘s own words, this is the closest thing to a mission statement it gets for a DJ/producer.

Help fund a vinyl release for some of this collection of bootlegs HERE thanks to Kickstarter.

An aspiring hippie, I’m growing my hair long and washing it much less. I live off strong coffee, fresh city air, as much sunshine as my traumatised skin cells can take and excellent music.
