If there were a DJ equivalent to the late, great Cuban bandleader Mario Bauza, it would have to be Miami's DJ Le Spam. Like Bauza, Le Spam is renowned for bringing the sound of Cuba to folks who might never have heard it before.
Le Spam spins behind the Allstars and has worked in practically every joint that has two turntables and a mixer. It's what Le Spam spins, though, rather than where, which gives the DJ his uniqueness. Yes, he's partial to what's sprung from Miami, but he'll drop a track from anywhere as long as it's rare. So if you're down for the kinda dig that knows no boundaries, DJ Le Spam is your man.
