Livetronica, also known as jamtronica, is a style of music that blends jam band elements with those of electronica.[1][2] The name is a portmanteau of the terms "live music" and "electronica."

A 2005 article in Entertainment Weekly identified Sound Tribe Sector 9 (STS9) as the leading livetronica band.[1] Although STS9 guitarist Hunter Brown has expressed basic reservations about the "livetronica" label, explaining that "it's a really vague term to describe a lot of bands," he did cite Tortoise as stylistic precursors.[2] Entertainment Weekly also identified Prefuse 73, VHS or Beta, Lotus, Signal Path, MFA, New Deal and Midwest Product as notable livetronica groups.[1]
