Hear Fool’s Gold’s Sammy Bananas’ Smooth Club Single ‘Flexin’

Producer releases title-track and tour dates surrounding new EP

Fool’s Gold’s Sammy Bananas is the label’s very own, actualized Mr. Saxobeat. You see, the DJ and producer is also a saxophonist and has been known to whip out his sunglassed grooves live while performing with his projects Telephoned (alongside Maggie Horn) and Fifteenth (with L.A.’s Thee Mike B). With his new single “Flexin,” the title-track from an EP by the same name, the producer’s velvet-carpeted sentiments translate to a discotheque where throaty New Jack Swing battles with nostalgic New York City club. Here we’ve got uplifting house keys, bright bursts of horns, and the persistent, bloated burps of a sticky bass line. Need a visual? The teaser vid for the Flexin EP very appropriately follows a mustachioed banana working out his limbs via a nostalgic, dancing, party-tour that includes stops at various vintage hot-spots, including the dancefloors of Studio 54 and backstage with Jimi Hendrix.
