STS9 brings thier “post rock dance music” to Madison Theater this Thursday.

STS9 invades Madison Theater on Thursday March 18, 2010

Originally formed in the late 90’s in Atlanta Georgia, STS9 has called Santa Cruz California home since the early 2000’s.  Know for their extremely creative heavy instrumental based electronic grooves, STS9 also blends  jazz, drums & bass to hip hop into every performance.  STS9 has released a total of five studio albums as well as a full length concert DVD titled “Live As Time Changes”.  In addition STS9 has released a variety of live recordings as well as a couple remixes of two albums.   The bands first three albums were put out by Landslide Records.  The other studio albums were released on their own boutique record label, 1320 RecordsSTS9 is a band that is hard to put in a typical music classification.  They truly have created a niche of their own, using progressive percussion based grooves to replace the typical melodic instrumental driving force behind typical music.    Using their live performances and easy ability for fans to download live shows, STS9 has developed a devoted fan base across the world.  STS9 is continually asked to perform some of the worlds best music festivals.  Bonnaroo, Rothbury, Coachella Music Festival, Fuji Rock Festival (Japan), High Sierra Music Festival, New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, Vegoose, and Walkarusa are a few widely popular festivals STS9 has had the pleasure of playing.

STS9 most current and best to date release is 2009’s – Ad Explorata.   Here is a brief summary taken from (Jonathan Zwickel)

Ad Explorata, the new album from the 13-year-old Santa Cruz quintet, is their best in years. Unsurprising, because it takes as sonic touchstone the cosmic beat orchestrations of Flying Lotus (an L.A.-based producer and former STS9 opening act with a new record, Cosmogramma, coming on Warp Records in April), Hudson Mohawke (a 24-year-old Scottish wunderkind who released his brilliant post-hip hop debut, Butter on Warp late last year), and Mike Slott (an Irish electro-futurist whose debut micro-album Lucky19 came out this spring on Scottish indie Lucky Me). FlyLo, HudMo, and Slott are the most exciting thing happening in music right now, live or otherwise, true auteurs crafting bass-heavy, deeply psychedelic, frequently beautiful songs from samplers and sequencers. They’re at the apogee of 15 or so years of evolution, from drum ‘n’ bass to trip-hop to glitch to dubstep to now and their still-unnamed music incorporating it all.

STS9 brings their infectious electronic dance grooves to Cincinnati this Thursday March 18, 2010.  STS9 is playing Covington’s Madison Theater.  Tickets for the concert are $20 and can be purchased online at Madison Theater’s website or Ticketmaster.  This is an all ages event with doors opening at 7:oopm with show time at 8:00pm.  Opening act Ana SIA will open the evening.  All information about the event can be found below, in addition we have provided samples of a STS9 show.  The Noble Visions will be an attendance and will provide images and a full recap of the show.
