Applications are now open for the Red Bull Music Academy 2011, which will head to Japan in autumn. To get things rolling, we're presenting a new exclusive mix from a former Academy participant every week from now until the end of the application period. This week's edition comes courtesy of Bolton native and class of Academy '03, Sammy Bananas. Now relocated to Brooklyn and signed to A-Trak's Fool's Gold label, Sam has carved a reputation as an impeccable crowd controller and well-versed remixer for the likes of Passion Pit and KiD CuDi. This mix sees him cutting up everything from hard-hitting blog house to throwback UKG to his own take on NYC duo The Kickdrums' sleeper hit, Something's Gotta Give. Looks like another summer of Sam might just be around the corner...
Apply for the Red Bull Music Academy in Tokyo, between February 2 and April 4, 2011. More info and the application form are available for download on http://www.redbullmusicacademy.com
