"Disseminat s/n" is DESKARATS’ new album. It has been signed by Megalith Records, a well respected leader of the ska movement working as a digital and physical distributor over the world. Rob Hingley “Bucket”, leader of the New York group The Toasters, agreed to produce the album.
The early beginnings of the group date back to 1994, when a group of three Amer natives shared a common passion for groups such as Skatalà, Decibelios, Kortatu and Madness.
The band was officially created in 1997. It was during this time that DESKARATS shared the stage with Skalariak, Dr. Ring Ding and were also Komando Morile’s official support group in their winter tour. The arrival of the group’s current drummer enabled the group to developed the style it had sought since the beginning. This event led to the decision of pursuing the first demo recording, which aimed to reflect a personal, unique style shaped by the musical influences of the group’s members. In May 2001, as the group again shared the stage with Skalariak, the demo was presented in Amer. It is titled "Deskarat!" and includes five original songs, aimed at finding a niche in the country’s ska sector.
Two years later and after several changes, the group recorded what would become their first album "Per la cara". As the name indicates (For Nothing), the album required a great financial effort on the part of the group members given that no record label would sign them and they had to produce the album themselves. The album was well-received however, and it didn’t take long to see positive results throughout the country. Unfortunately, this did not translate into album sales. Disheartened by this and other personal problems, the group took some time out to reflect.
This setback helped the group mature musically and along with the fact that it was eager to continue rockin’, a revitalized comeback soon followed with the addition of new members. “DKS”, with Bucket’s production, was a great hit throughout the country. Two Spanish tours were consequently launched and were very successful.
DESKARATS, with more than 350 performances since their creation, now presents "Disseminat s/n" with more strength than ever before!
