About 3kStatic: Since its formation in 1999, 3kStatic has gone on to become one of the most critically lauded acts in the US deep underground scene. Heavily inspired by the post-punk angst of early electronic/industrial music pioneers, 3kStatic fuses Dadaist cut-up techniques with elements of house, trip hop, and IDM to create an often harsh, inflammatory, and ardently leftist social view that has seen its releases reviewed by political journals as well as the music press. Having recently embarked on a more extensive live schedule that, in 2006, included the inaugural Clover Festival and a night at New York's legendary rock club The Knitting Factory (where they appeared immediately after Ice-T and Body Count) The band's most recent album quickly became their most successful digital release in Summer/Fall 2006, having hit #1 (iTunes Spain Dance Chart) and also charting Top 5 (Dance) in Italy, Belgium, and Switzerland. Featuring collaborations with Annette Strean (Venus Hum) and many others, the 22-track album continued to chart Top 25 in those countries for 10 consecutive weeks and was also selected by protest rock icon Neil Young as one of the "Songs of The Times" featured on neilyoung.com A long-time staple on the soundtrack of MTV' reality series "The Real World" and "Road Rules", the music of 3kStatic is slated to also appear on the soundtrack of a major film scheduled for release in 2007. With the recent release of the 18-track career retrospective 'Other Ideals: The Best of 3kStatic 1999-2007) on the dPulse/INgrooves labels, 3kStatic made its first entry onto the iTunes Japan Top 100 Album Sales Charts. The album also hit Top 5 on an unprecedented six genre charts on the popular eMusic service, and also charted at #19 on the Rhapsody digital music service in April, 2007. Production is currently in progress for the upcoming 3kStatic original album, the band's 12th official release.
