Spam All-Stars Introducing: Spam All-Stars
- Words: Eric K. Arnold
- Label: Introducing
- XLR8R Rating: 8/10
Miami’s Spam All-Stars need no introduction for anyone into the Afro-Latin fusion scene. But just in case you didn’t get the memo, DJ LeSpam and his flavorful ensemble have assembled some of their hottest tracks into one of the tightest releases yet in World Music Network’s Introducing series. Those offerings so far have been heavy on traditional music, yet for the Spammers, tradition is just one ingredient muddling their rhythmic mojito. A blend of samples, turntables, and big beats along with tres, timbales, trombones, and flutes keeps everything fluid and funky. Tracks like “Ochimini” and “Afrika” leave no booty unshaken in their wake, kind of like a ritmo’ hurricane.
