STS9, Sound Tribe Sector 9, is an instrumental band with a unique vibe, self-described as "post-rock dance music." STS9 mixes standard live rock instrumentation with electronics, favoring group rhythm over solos. Since forming over a decade ago, STS9 has released 11 albums, two remixed albums, and two live DVDs. The band has opened for genre-defying acts including Snoop Dogg, Ghostland Observatory, The Glitch Mob, and Big Boi of Outkast, and once performed with Jay-Z. STS9 consistently produces the ultimate audio-visual experience that fans have come to expect from their shows, a fact resonated through the band’s self-owned record label, 1320 Records. The label was founded much on the same principles as the band. The goal is clear: "bring the music to the people in the most conscious, unique innovative and savvy ways possible." STS9 thinks this goal lessens the distance between the artists and fans, "putting the power back in the hands of those that make the music and those that live for it."
