Somasphere's music is deeply rooted in the electronic genres of Drum & Bass, Breakbeat, and Progressive House. These influences combined with live improvisation allow the band to explore sonic textures and grooves while providing a contagious dance beat.

Biography

The four-piece instrumental electronica group known as Somasphere is on the brink of taking the nation by storm. Formed in late 2006, the band quickly became known in Lincoln, Omaha, and surrounding areas for energetic live shows that combine the dance floor sensibilities of DJ culture with the performance capabilities of rock music.

Their unique approach centers on solid danceable rhythms created by the use of both traditional and electronic drum kits. The flow of these distinct, yet equally energetic sources, allows the band to traverse the spectrum of grooves and tempos ranging from steady house, hard-hitting breaks and intense jungle, to mid-tempo and hip hop. In any of these styles, Somasphere always brings the low-end deep and dirty using both bass guitar and synth.

While the rhythm section is powerful, many of the sonic textures that have come to define the band’s sound center on melodies created by both guitar and laptop based sample manipulation. These disparate elements combine to create a sound that is equally at home in the headphones or on a packed dance floor.

Somasphere has performed alongside some of the most innovative electronic acts in the country, including Bassnectar, Lotus, Pnuma Trio, EOTO, Big Gigantic, Vibesquad and Pretty Lights. Watch for upcoming tour dates and events at venues across the country and a new full length album slated for release in 2010!
