To correspond with our Thee Mike B. interview which deep dives into the history & legacy of Banana Split Sundaes at LAX, we are releasing another previously unreleased AM Banana Split Mix! This mix is from July 26th, 2009 after Banana Split had moved from LAX to Bardot. Mike believes this might be the last time AM ever performed at Banana Split as this event was almost exactly one month before he passed away. From Mike B's archives, here is the original flyer for that night which featured special guests Riton & James Pants:
This DJ AM Banana Split previously unreleased mix is much less ravey than the other mixes that have been posted and shows a bit more range of styles. Clocking in at 43 minutes, the mix starts off with classic 90s hip hop, goes into some indie, 80s and funk then ends with some classic indie dance. It's sloppy, even by AM standards, but ultimately another good example of how wide open things were at Banana Split and how AM used it as a safe place to play music he loved.
