Telephoned was born one night in Brooklyn when DJ/producer Sammy Bananas (Fool’s Gold) and singer/party starter Maggie Horn (Good Peoples) decided to record their own version of T-Pain’s “Can’t Believe It.” Their track was neither remix nor cover – instead, the duo fashioned a postmodern take on both, warping the original beat into a hypnotic club track and bringing out the dreamy qualities only hinted at in Pain’s auto-tuned melodies. Sammy and Maggie’s fresh “Can’t Believe It” quickly became a DJ favorite – even making it into mix rotation on LA hip-hop station Power 106! – so they decided to keep recording as a team, cleverly named after the kids game of Telephone: no faithful copies, just a party line of unexpected twists. Whether morphing Ron Browz “Pop Champagne” into a spacey dancefloor gem (“Bottle service electro meets Triplets Of Belleville” says Ms Horn), dubstepping “Turn My Swag On,” or re-imagining DJ Webstar’s “Dancin On Me” as a BK funky anthem, these Telephoned covers are instantly addictive and massively charming. Their self titled EP (out 1/19 on Fool’s Gold, accompanied by a free, promo mixtape) continues to turn pop into new-school standards, putting a fresh spin on party music. Telephoned is off the hook!
