STS9 @ First Avenue

Santa Cruz, CA based electronica band STS9 graced the Minneapolis area with their presence this past week. Making an appearance at First Avenue, they kicked off a hot night of electronica in the Twin Cities.  To begin the festivities newcomers Big Gigantic played a set of their Jazz influenced electronic hip-hop to a crowd that loves the fusion of horns with spacey psychedelic music.  After that STS9 followed things up by starting their set with “Arigato” as well as “Blu Mood” and their newest single off recent album Ad Explorata called “Atlas”

STS9 rocks out their live staple “Hi-Key”

Big Gigantic – Wide Awake available for download now!

Today is the day that the new Big Gigantic album hits the streets! Available for free download below and produced by electro-pioneer Alex Botwin, Big Gigantic’s new record is something to be played loudly! This record has some blazing hot beats and horns and it definitely has that electro and hip-hop feel to it.  STS( will be correctly supported this fall by these guys and I am glad I will see them next Thursday in Minneapolis at First Avenue! 1320 records has a special act here and it’s only a matter of time before these guys get huge.
