Skeetones

“So call them Jamtronica. Call them Live Trance. Call them ElectrorockternativeimprovworldjazzIDM, if you want. Like the music itself, there really are no words. But if you enjoy the way modern artists continue to tinker with the perceived limitations of Electronic music, you might just end up calling Skeetones your new favorite band.”

-Mike Breen, Cincinnati City Beat

Skeetones bring a new generation of music to the Midwest’s electronic landscape. While programmed tracks lay the foundation for songwriting, the music comes to life during the band’s energetic performances. From chopping acapella samples to wobbling bass lines, Skeetones create on-the-fly remixes of their own songs without using a single loop or backing track. They continue to emphasize their live take on sounds such as acid house, hip hop, downtempo, and dubstep, all while keeping sight of their multi-instrumentalist and improvisational foundation. They have shared stages throughout the Midwest with bands such as Pnuma Trio, Umphrey’s McGee, Flying Lotus, The Macpodz, Big Gigantic, and Papadosio. This cultivated ensemble continues to accomplish the seemingly impossible task of entertaining the thinking mind and the dancing feet alike, leaving listeners reformulating their conception of live electronic music.
