STS9

Founded in Georgia in the late '90s, Sound Tribe Sector 9 (later STS9) quickly refined a style of dub-influenced, breakbeat-infused psychedelic music with a heavy emphasis on group improvisation, comparable to the work of jam band peers such as the Disco Biscuits and the New Deal. The group's debut effort, 1998's Interplanetary Escape Vehicle, was recorded soon after the group's formation and thus provided only scant hints of the sound the band would develop, instead focusing on instrumental funk and jazz grooves.

With the addition of percussionist Jeffree Lerner in 1999, the band's sound solidified into a powerfully original, highly danceable tapestry. Through constant touring, the group began to work up a large following among jam band fans. Two more releases -- 1999's Live and 2000's Offered Schematics Suggesting Peace -- captured both the band's developing sound and its increasing interest in Mayan mysticism and culture. The former accurately documented the confident tone of the band's relentless live performances, while the latter used analog tape loops, a blend of live and studio tracks, and extensive use of guest flutist Kofi Burbridge to create a more subtle mix. With an emphasis on spirituality, equality, and the freeing of musical egos, the band eschewed solos in favor of small, repetitive parts that added together into a musical mélange at once droning and texturally deep.

STS9 relocated to Northern California in late 2000. Constantly touring, they also formed their own label, 1320 Records, releasing the albums Peaceblaster (2008), Ad Explorata (2009), and Axe the Cables (2010), along with an EP, When the Dust Settles (2011), on the imprint. The group also gained renown for its festival appearances, with shows at most of the major U.S. fests, including Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Coachella, New Orleans Jazz, and Outside Lands. ~ Jesse Jarnow, Rovi

I remember seeing these guys in Atl. 6days after 9/11. Small clubs and venues these guys are the real deal.
Pew Pew Pew !!! *explosions of peace*
Can't wait...11 more days then Red Rocks baby!!!
How can u not mention artifacts in that bio, that's the album that put em on the map
STS9 throws down live! I promise you wont be standing motionless at one of their shows. Drink lots of water.....
Bout to see them in Detroit tonight!
Just seen em at the congress in Chicago think they were better back n the day until peace-blaste r came out

Watching them perform is an amazing experience. You can see the love they have for what they do very strongly. ReGen @ hornings hideout a few summers ago was the best STS9 experience to date.
this is the worst bio ever, you use big words but know little of your subject matter.
sts9 sound tribe sector nine. just red the full bio, loving the harmionic repitition and the evolution to the next sound is alwayse amazing with the right artist doing the mixing. i highly recomend for other trance lovers
Not heard o' these before now, one of the joys of Pandora is finding new sounds and creations to enjoy. Love the experimental nature, will thumbs up this track for certain.
Why am I the first to comment on this thread? More groups need to embrace improvisatio n a l instrumentat i o n with underlying samples and grooves. That's my opinion and I'm stickin' to it. icecreamguy7 eats his own feces in a trance of joyous delight.
The 2012 Atlanta show at the Fox Theater was incredible. The best show I have ever seen. The music and lights blew my mind.
I was at that Chicago show!! Co-sign on the sickness!! Really dig these guys.

I saw em at red rocks several times. but here recently i saw them again just a few years back when i tripped acid. i was lost in their music and the experience was truly magical. i recommend trippin at one of their shows. it's f**king awesome.

Ah, STS9, their live shows are magical, and their music takes me to another place. I put them on at work and get stuff done really well while listening to them. Not only are they amazing artists, they're amazing people who are constantly giving back to communities in a number of ways. TRIBE

Duckworth_ab b y I will be there in atlanta! I'm from tuscaloosa and I think its amazing that they played a benefit show that raised over $20,000 for tornado-rela t e d relief efforts. I love this band and everything they're about.
And i just wanna say F**k Yeah to all the hooligans and monkeys that witnessed red rocks on the 9th and 10th
there is no show on earth like a tribe show, at least for me their is no other group or artist in the world that can cause such strong feeling of bliss with the art they create live
I remember these guys the most out of all the bands at Allgood this year. Most incredible light show = best first acid trip ever.
