about

Blueskank has already released it´s first LP “Taking Off”. In adition to previous recordings, Blueskank has incorporated a percussionist (Juan Tomás Martínez) and a new drummer (Rodrigo díaz “El Niño”) who have definitely improved the band´s sound.

These 11 new tracks mix roots reggae with other black music genres as funk, jazz, soul and blues. The result of the process, a mixture of analogic and digital recording and mixing methods, is a unique sound based on original compositions, precious melodies and surprising instrumental passages in a dubby style.

Some of the best young Spanish musicians have collaborated in “Taking Off”: Enrique Rodríguez (trumpet), Carlos Leal (guitar), José Recacha (guitar), Marcos Crespo (trombone)…
The album has been mixed by Puppashan (experienced radio DJ, producer, composer and musician), Arturo Jiménez (producer) and Mighty Mike, mastered by Pete Maher (TopFloor Music) and edited by Producciones Psicotrónicas.

Blueskank are:

Mighty Mike – vocals and guitar
Fernando Vasco – Keyboards and backing vocals
Javier Ochoa – guitar and backing vocals
Berni B – Bass
Juan Tomás Martínez – percussion and backing vocals
Rodrigo díaz “El Niño” – drums
