It’s April 10, 2015 and the crowd at Euphoria Music and Camping Festival is busting with excitement as Sound Tribe Sector 9 (STS9) takes the stage.

Here is a look back at STS9’s first headlining festival of 2015 (set from Euphoria Music Festival).

STS9 has a particular style of instrumental “post-rock dance music” that evokes a communal, jam-bandish atmosphere. An atmosphere of improvisation that is in the same vein as the old jam-band forbearers like the Grateful Dead, Phish and Widespread Panic.

Transcending mere electronica, the performance was warm, intellectual and filled with richly sophisticated beats, grooves and melody. This was a sonic journey overflowing with clever instrumentation, energy and spirit.
