Fifteenth “15th” EP

Posted on Sep 27th, 2011 by Mr Goldbar

Expert DJs and longtime Fool’s Gold friends Sammy Bananas and Thee Mike B woke up early on their born day and ran directly to the studio, whipping up a gang of brand-new dance tracks as a gift-wrapped present to us all. Fifteenth is the result, a production duo par excellence named after their shared day of birth, melding jacked-up East Coast disco house vibes with Westside pool-party funkiness. Their debut EP synthesizes the feel-good energy of Sammy and Mike’s solo DJ sets into some dank nugs of dance music perfectly suited for packed megaclubs and pajama jammy jams alike. L’chaim!


Grab it today exclusively at Juno Download (all other digital services to follow). For more from Sammy, peep his past FG releases (both solo and as half of Telephoned) and for more Mike B, check out his Soundcloud. Read More
