It's been eight years since this five man electronic music collective from Santa Cruz, California has graced the stages of High Sierra. They began with us back in 2000, then a little known instrumental progressive rock act from Atlanta who through consistent touring (which included a consecutive five year stint at High Sierra from 2000 - 2004) have elevated themselves to the forefront of today's jamtronica music scene. In addition to  selling out shows around the country and using their voice as a platform for change by raising admirable amounts of money towards their activism efforts, STS9 has released 11 albums on their own 1320 Records label which was founded on the principles of collaboration, cooperation, and community. The goal is clear: Bring the music to the people in the most conscious and efficient way possible. By doing so, the distance lessens between artists and fans, putting the power back in the hands of those that make music and those that live for it. Pushing the boundaries of electronic, instrumental music STS9's sound is a tour-de-force of rhythms and textures, beats and melodies, darkness and light all served up in an array of different tempos and grooves from energizing, pulsing and ecstatic, to ambient, ethereal and hypno-trance-endental.
