Discovery: Spawn

Spawn are an instrumental band from The Netherlands whose new track Skadagio isn’t like anything you’d hear everyday.

By Graeme Smith

Implied by the name, Skadagio is a track built on ska and reggae foundations. Yet, an added jazz element is thrown into the mix with melodies played out on muted horns making the track an unusual prospect. The mash-up of styles works well and Skadagio is a laid-back wonder.

Spawn have three albums under their belt and have been popping up on radio shows here in the UK and in America. I’m glad to have stumbled across them today and will definitely be adding their stuff to my soundtrack. Check out Skadagio below.
