Santa Cruz, California jam band Sound Tribe Sector 9 are arguably the most electronic and experimental of the jam band niche. With a relentless touring schedule which has found the band at just about every summer music festival, the Tribe took some time out to release a benefit recording, Peaceblaster: The New Orleans Make It Right Remixes.

Artist: STS9
Song: Hidden Hand, Hidden Fist

In conjunction with its record label, 1320 Records, the 30-track instrumental album of STS9 remixes is raising awareness and funds for the New Orleans recovery charity, Make It Right. For the cause, the Tribe are donating all proceeds for the construction of a single home in the city’s Lower Ninth Ward. Although a similar cause to Habitat for Humanity, Make It Right’s houses are storm-resistant, elevated and use eco-friendly materials.

So take the most divergent jam band, add an array of indie DJ’s, and you have a tight and cohesive remix album. Take the record on the road with a band featured on more than a dozen summer festivals this year alone, and the band is bound to easily exceed its $150,000 quota for the charity.

Remixed by San Francisco electronic quartet the Flying Skulls and featuring samples by Los Angeles rapper Abstract Rude, “Hidden Hand, Hidden Fist” is a break beat and hip-hop heavy reprise for the already trippy track.

“Peaceblaster” is sure not to disappoint both electronic and jam band fans alike. The Tribe will be playing two sets at the 8th annual Camp Bisco music festival in Mariaville, N.Y., which kicks off July 16.
