About Space Junk:
With their unique sound mixing traditional rock structure, and complex developmental jamming, Space Junk evolves house, rock and jazz influenced improvising as the force to separate them from your typical solo based Jam band. Each show is a unique musical journey – ensuring that no two shows are the same. Their loyal fan base ties this live intelligent dance party together, sure to keep your feet moving, your blood pumping, and your brain in a frenzy.
Unofficially formed in 2009 while attending college in Fredonia, Space Junk got its name and a new home in Buffalo, NY in 2011. Joining forces with Buffalo’s Frosty Tone DJ crew, Space Junk proved that a live band could hold their own with the late night DJs and MCs. Here they established their long form improvisational development, reminiscent of their DJ influences and counterparts in Trance, DnB, Dubstep and House. Maintaining a presence amongst the DJs and Jam bands in the Allentown bar district, they continued to push the limits of their tension filled peaks. They have shared the stage with acts such as Dopapod, Particle, Dr. Fameus, Consider the Source, Kung Fu, Digital Tape Machine, Jimkata, The Heavy Pets and many more. They where awarded Best Rhythm Section at the WNY Music Awards ceremony in 2013. And in 2016 Space Junk was voted the #1 electronic band by Western New York News.
Close your eyes during one of their jams and you will see these analog musicians transform into one digital beast. Fueled by heavy delays, face-melting guitar solos, mind bending electro-funk jams, and an ambidextrous drummer/DJ/keyboardist [Yes, their drummer does all three simultaneously], Space Junk is bound to leave you stuck in orbit after seeing them live.
RootsCollider implements an electronica producer's approach to writing original music by layering melodies, rhythms, and samples in the same fashion that a DJ does while composing. This methodology is a self-aware effort to super-collide multiple genres of dance music into a single unstoppable aesthetic force.
