Blueskank are a six piece roots-reggae band via Madrid, Spain who released the excellent featured track ‘Warriors‘ on the 2014 ten-track album, ‘A Thin Line’, effortlessly blending sounds you’d expect from legends like WAR or Steel Pulse into their own distinct blend. The band notes they are particularly influenced by soul, afrobeat and blues music. The artwork for this album is by Arkaitz del Río and the director of the video further below is Ángel Vallejo.

A more recent project out this year is the original soundtrack of documentary ‘Do It Better‘, which includes their own and foreign productions of unpublished songs recorded in different studios and places, from Wisconsin to Prague, through Madrid or Vigo. ‘Love & Light‘ is one of the absolute standouts on this album, a song by Elephant Yard & the Blueskank Trio, whose beautiful flow we hope to bring to you in the future months. Also, their website lists an LP titled ‘Another Round‘ listed for release sometime in 2017.

Influences: Burning Spear, Clinton Fearon, Groundation, Avishai Cohen, Ebo Taylor, Tony Allen, Ottis Redding
