SPAM Allstars were formed by Andrew Yeomanson, a/k/a DJ Le Spam, who was raised in Toronto, Bogota and London, and has called Miami home since 1993. He got his start by playing guitar in Haitian band Lavalas, and recording and touring with Miami based artist Nil Lara. Along the way he added to his vinyl collection, and when off the road he would DJ locally. These DJ gigs evolved into collaborations with live musicians, performing on an internet radio show, recording in his home studio, and the first of many residencies combining his samplers & DJ skills with a live band. The sound created is an improvisational blend of electronic elements, turntables, sax, trombone, flute, congas, guitar with music styles found in latin, funk, hip hop and dub to create what they call electronic descarga. It’s difficult to describe, but when you hear it and then dance to it - you know something very special is going on.
