sammy bananas

Sammy Bananas is both a friend of the Future and a man of many talents. With his appropriately titled Flexin’ 12″ on Fool’s Gold we hear the Brooklyn based producer doing exactly what the title suggests; showing off his prowess for production with 4 tracks that range from hands-in-the-air house to what can only be described as neo new jack swing (nü jack swing?).

Check out the piano/sax interplay of “Never Say” on the A-side and then flip the record over for the Danny Brown sampling, “Feel House” which until now has only been available digitally via Fools Gold Club House Vol. 1.

Pressed on blue vinyl and playing @ 33rpm, the album also features a cut out, cardboard, “Mr. Flex” banana doll on the back sleeve… I call him Señor Platanos.

You can grab a copy directly from from the Fool’s Gold web store or find this release at all major vinyl outlets.
