Non-pretentious self-proclaimed nostalgia abounds on this 50 minute mix tape of bootleg remixes spanning a decade - SAMMY BANANAS mission statement.


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.
