Biography

DJ Le Spam & the Spam Allstars blend improvisational electronic elements and turntables with latin, funk, hip hop and dub to create a sound that is unique – an electronic descarga. It’s not a known genre. It’s hard to describe. It attracts many types of people. But as we look out and see people dancing salsa, next to break-dancers, and festival-goers driving for hours to catch a show — we know something very special is going on.

Spam Allstars are road warriors — a touring band. Perhaps one could say they are taking an “old school” approach to sharing their music. For each performance they have, every music lover they meet, every time they bring yet another musician into the fold for a collaboration – Spam Allstars celebrate their opportunity to work as musicians and be creative each day.

The band’s upcoming release – electrodomesticos (Spamusica Records, 3/2007) -took roughly 18 months to record. Most of the sessions were done at the City of Progress studio in North Miami, FL, and produced by DJ Le Spam. All of it was recorded while working around a 200+ yearly performance schedule. DJ Le Spam wanted to capture certain moments with musicians that the band had played with over the last three years. The outcome is a refreshing collection of recordings featuring each of the Spam Allstars – Andrew Yeomanson/DJ Le Spam (turntables, samplers, guitar, bass), Adam Zimmon (guitars), Tomas Diaz (timbales, vox), AJ Hill (saxes, vox), Steve Welsh (saxes), Mercedes Abal (flute, vox), Chad Bernstein (trombone, vox), and Lazaro Alfonso (congas).
