Sector 9 is a 5-piece band originally from Athens, GA. Their style has been labeled "Organic Techno", and truly needs to be experienced to be understood.
Since starting in the mid 90's (as a trio) the band has pretty much toured the country non-stop enveloping each new city with their unique energy and leaving legions of new fans in their wake. A quote from their press release pretty much sums it up :
"One of the most active touring groups in America, STS9 has won an assembly of supporters whose devotion would be the envy of any other band. The members take this devotion very seriously, working 20 shows a month to both entertain and open listeners to the healing power of their own psyches. STS9 enhances its music with a meticulously crafted melange of lighting, spatial, and cinematic effects. Each facet of the show is designed to transport the magic of STS9's sound. A SoundTribe Sector 9 performance goes beyond mere visual or sonic spectacle - it is a complete environmental experience. Onstage, STS9 displays an astonishing degree of personality and presence, especially for an instrumental group. Although STS9 doesn't have a front man, this works to the group's advantage, allowing each member ample opportunity to commune with the audience. STS9 is simply one of the warmest, most joyful groups one could imagine watching, and this warmth spills over into the audience, creating an interplay that defies description. The music is lush and intricate, and compositions seem to develop lives of their own, feeding from and reacting to the participation of the audience. Liquid keyboards are punctuated with glistening licks and shimmering rhythms, sculpting another evening of sonic discovery.
Originally from Atlanta, Georgia, Sound Tribe Sector 9 has extensively toured throughout North America. Last year, the band embarked on three cross-country tours and ended up in Santa Cruz, California, where they currently live, create, and plot out their strategy to bring groove consciousness to the world stage."
"They traffic the funky interstellar byways that course between planets Ambient, Jungle, and Techno with a hip-hoppy-head nod they translate digibeats into live instruments."~Spin Magazine
"A quintet of Mayan-codex freaks still in their early twenties, Sector 9 play fast, nimble, and otherworldly music that revs up like tightly meshed prog rock, but with nary a discouraging dick-wagging solo to be heard. The submission of individual players into the combo mind-meld has been a hallmark of psychedelic music since the San Fran '60s, of course, but groups like these level the field even further by wading deeper and deeper into ego-free seas of sound." ~Richard Gehr, The Village Voice, Spin, Rolling Stone, The Phish Book
"...instrumentals that have one foot in the 70s recalling such progressives as Brian Augers Oblivion Express , Herbie Hancocks Headhunters and others (its the electronic keyboards) with the other foot stepping into the next millennium (its the inter-galactic monster-sized psychedelic rave-y space-jams). Guaranteed to launch you high into the atmosphere." ~High Sierra Music Festival 1999 Program Notes

after the bands 2.26.00 San Diego, CA show
"It may not be for everyone.
But it could be." - STS9
"STS9 has converted that permutation back into an analog format--digital framework and all. It's a live band of guitar, keyboards, bass and two percussionists playing long, flowing instrumentals echoing Miles Davis and the spacier side of Santana but often mimicking the clipped repetitions of looped techno drum-and-bass patterns." ~LA Times
"...the groove-meets-rave Sector 9 is looking to stun the usual jam-rocker audience with its beat-friendly, progressive rock and psychedelic trance sound." ~City Life (Las Vegas,NV)
"...Sector 9 fuses techno-shamanism with a jam-band sensibility. Layering Myan culture imagery over evolving and shape-shifting grooves that bubble with systhesizer fractals, the band creates hypnotic tapestries that engage both the mind and the body. Sooner or later, the hypnotic motin of the dance wins out, and that's about the time that Secto 9 really heads for the outer reaches" ~Metro (Santa Cruz,CA)
