Fifteenth “Yesterday” Out 5/14

Posted on May 6th, 2013 by Mr Goldbar

Fifteenth is the peerlessly groovy production duo comprised of Brooklyn’s Sammy Bananas and LA’s Thee Mike B. These bicoastal DJ bros have combined forces on Fool’s Gold once again with “Yesterday,” a dreamy slice of sunset-ready house music, out next week (5/14, the day before Sammy and Mike’s ACTUAL shared birthday that gave the group it’s namesake).

“Yesterday” is the rare jam that’s perfect for pool parties and heartfelt homemade mixtapes alike, backed by some amazing remixes from international homies His Majesty Andre, Funkin Matt, and Jerome LOL. Check out the snippets, crank it up, and make some memories of your own.

Along with his own exceptionally fun original music (both solo and as half of Telephoned and Fifteenth), Sammy Bananas has been cranking out some of the best bootlegs in the biz for over a decade. Whether reanimating R&B throwbacks or twisting present-day pop into uptempo weapons of dance destruction, Mr Bananas just has a knack for the funk! He always wanted to press some of his biggest boots to vinyl, and now thanks to Kickstarter you can help make it happen! Check the link for full details and info on the different fan packages available.

Telephoned “Nearly Lost You”

Posted on Jan 11th, 2013 by Mr Goldbar


The free Telephoned EP Singles is the duo’s grunge valentine, covering cuts from Cameron Crowe’s soundtrack over Ryan Hemsworth beats. Sammy and Maggie turned Seattle rockers into R&B slow jams in the process (even CC himself approves, tweeting at Telephoned to do “Dyslexic Heart” and “State Of Love And Trust” next!) and now they’ve dropped a video for their take on Screaming Trees’ “Nearly Lost You” (put together by our own Josh Wehle).

Telephoned play live at Cameo in Brooklyn on Sunday, January 20th, alongside Cookies and Tubetops. Go vibe out with them! And check out Telephoned’s U Don’t Have To Call (more “cover ups,” this time over Clams Casino beats) and their “Last Time” single for even more.
