I don't post very often. But I've seen many of you lament not being able to actually watch a band perform the electronic music that you'd see/hear live, creating it on the fly. I, too, have issue with 'seeing' DJ's live, as I often have a hard time believing that they're not using mostly studio-created loops/samples/patches instead of working more 'live'. I certainly don't know enough about DJ'g to categorically write off every DJ as not-truly-creating-in-the-moment, but I don't desire to see as many DJ's anymore, largely because, as a fan, I can't 'participate' with DJ's during their live shows as I'd truly like.

I'm more a fan of bands that integrate electronics into their compositions & live performances. While I appreciate certain aspects of, say, STS9 & Zoogma for example, their songs tend to sound nearly identical across different live shows, limiting how often I can personally continue to keep seeing them live. This lack of improv, while not a sticking point for many, has led me to look to greener pastures.

If my perspective sounds like your own, I'd strongly recommend checking out Brothers Past (Philly). While basing their live performances around indie-influenced(?) song- & lyric-structure, live iterations can easily last 20-30 minutes, sounding (nearly) completely different from one version to the next. Their jamming/improv tends to go deep into a dubby drum-n-bass direction; I often feel that they're 'channeling' something dark/tribal/evil. I've heard from many people that, in their opinion, Brothers Past is on the forefront of the band-based jamtronica scene right now; I don't disagree. Their soundguy recently posted that he has yet to come across a better example of an artist that so effectively blurs the line between live instrumentation & true DJ electronica.

Since a visual component may be important to many of you as well, check the following videos (single song, split in two) if you're so inclined. "One Rabbit Race," from Cleveland last summer:

- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XlqAq8YUffY (p.1)

- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aImWzVunNGw (p.2)

If the vocals aren't very appealing to you, skip ahead a few minutes to the jam section. If you like this song, that show is a great place to start; for most of 2011, it was considered best show of the year. I'd be happy to recommend other shows to those who like this one.

Looking forward to picking up some new ish from this thread. Thanks.

Brothers past certainly slays, but Im waiting for a band that will reinvent livetronica. I think the evolution of the genre has stalled. Its a field of imitators.

Orgwell, arent you a newly crowned LD moderator? Congrats, friend.
