Sammy Bananas “Move Your Body” Single Out Today + Free Toy Selectah Remix

Posted on Feb 15th, 2011 by Mr Goldbar

After the OG version vocodered its way into your heart on the Fool’s Gold Vol 1 compilation, it was only natural that Sammy Bananas’ debut solo track (that’s him singing!) “Move Your Body” gets the proper FG single treatment, which you can pick up now on Beatport.

“Move Your Body” comes backed by remixes from Cassian (whose disco take is already getting BBC radio love), Smalltown Romeo and Toy Selectah, who flips the synth pop workout into a signature “Ravertron” version, complete with new vocals en espanol (again, with Sammy B on the m-i-c). With the whole world going cumbia / moombahton crazy, what better time for some plantain vibes of our own? Preview Toy’s mix on RCRD LBL and be sure to cop all the other versions on the single.

Food Gold: Sammy Bananas’ Roast Lemon Rosemary Chicken

Posted on Jan 21st, 2011 by Elliot Aronow

OG Food Gold contributor Sammy Bananas returns!

Who Likes Chicken? Over the past few years I’ve been working on a simple but damn good recipe for Roast Chicken. The result is straightforward and hard to screw up, but a serious mouth waterer. I recently brought this chicken to the annual Fool’s Gold Holiday Potluck, and it seemed to be a hit! Food Gold head chef Elliot practically forced me to give up the recipe, and I’m happy to share. I’ve gotta give a shout here to my lovely girlfriend Mari, who introduced this approach to me, and has helped shape it into a winner. Read below to find out the juicy (and I do mean juicy) details!
