Miami based Spam Allstars blend improvisational electronic elements and turntables with latin, funk, hip hop and dub to create what they call an electronic descarga. Formed by Andrew Yeomanson, a/k/a DJ Le Spam, the band perform 200+ shows each year and host residencies in Little Havana, Miami and Miami Beach. They have five independent releases - Electrodomesticos/2007; Contra Los Roboticos Mutantes/2004; Latin Grammy nominated Fuacata Live/2002; Pigs In Space/2000; and Pork Scratchings/1999 - on their own label - Spamusica Records.
"Often credited as pioneering the new Miami-fusion sound, a synthesis of electronic music with Latin beats from Cuba, Colombia, Venezuela, and other countries whose musicians have migrated to Miami, the Spam Allstars combine live and improvised electronic music and turntables in a vigorous rhythmic celebration that defies categorization." - Boston Globe
Spam creates a Cuban vibe mixed with hip hop and dub, with great swinging violin, horns, synthesizer solos and flute parts. It's fresh and highly danceable, and you'll wonder why you didn't hear of Spam earlier. The Gazette (Montreal)
