Sammy Bananas at The Woods! 2.25.12
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, Passion Pit, and Kid Cudi, and his Fool’s Gold EPs High Top Fades and Braids & Fades pay 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 LA show to shout “YOU made this?!?”
Most recently Sammy has been on tour with super group Chromeo and has done a superb job of warming up the crowd with a steady blend of hip hop, house, rnb remixes, disco classics, and other surprises.
Last year I had the pleasure of playing with Sammy as well as his musical com padre Maggie Horn, also known together as Telephoned, Sammy knows how to throw down the dance party right!
The Woods and savant DJ Blueyedsoul are hosting mister Bananas this Saturday, don't miss out!
