STS9 – Without a doubt one of the most dynamic and original live music projects of the past decade, Sound Tribe made a lasting imprint on the jam-electronica scene that will not soon be forgotten. Check out this compilation video of STS9’s two night run, last year, at the Congress Theater. By fusing styles of dance music with funk, hip-hop, jazz and others into a one of a kind instrumental cocktail that delight fans of all sorts across the globe – Tribe is one band that is here to stay.  STS9 are one of the few bands that can truly excel in both the live and studio atmospheres. With records like their classic 2005 LP, Artifact – which was a well crafted, electronically produced album filled with intricate samples and compendious composition. Yet, the band is still very much a live, improvisational group and works unique live versions of their studio tracks into their live performances.
STS9 truly does it all; from headlining stages at festivals such as the Ultra Music Festival, Bonnaroo, Outside Lands, Lollapalooza and Electric Daisy Carnival, to selling out shows around the country as an acoustic set-up in opera houses or as an electronic act in amphitheatres. They have performed with Jay-Z in arenas, run their own record label, 1320 Records and even use their voice as a platform for change and raising significant amounts of money towards activism efforts (including $150,000 to The Make it Right Foundation, paving the way to rebuild a house in the Lower 9th Ward of New Orleans). Pushing boundaries is all in a day’s work for STS9.
