Fifteenth are Brooklyn DJs Sammy Bananas and Thee Mike B, and on this, their debut release for A-Trak's Fools Gold imprint as a duo, they channel the spirit of Paradise Garage disco through the lens of contemporary electro to create party jams that feel like they would be equally at home in a warehouse as they would in a murky basement. "Tomorrow" is a slice of filter driven funk with a futuristic sheen that recalls Discovery era Daft Punk, complete with shameless guitar solo, whilst "My Fantasy (Part Deux)" utilises the same springy bass with a more furiously paced loop driven aesthetic. Finally, "Hollywood, NY" combines a hazy atmosphere with a laid back bass guitar groove which sounds like a lost 70s movie soundtrack gem.
Two years after Sammy Bananas and Thee Mike B gave us "Tomorrow", Fifteenth return, ironically, with "Yesterday". Retaining the lavish disco groove and playful sense of fun they launched with, "Yesterday" is armed with big sing-along vocals, heaving horns, delicate keys and a sprightly sense of electro a la Linus Loves and Mylo circa mid noughties. Remix-wise Funkin Matt takes us to a dark warehouse in a luxury acid limousine while His Majesty Andre goes in the complete opposite direction with a real synth-burning lighter-thruster of a version. Jerome LOL finishes the set on wholly different vibe again. Like organic, chop-slappy drums and mournful trumpet solos? Then you'll LOVE this!
