999999999 are an imposing and inescapable presence at the vanguard of the hard techno scene. In the studio and on stage, the immediacy of uncompromising machine music collides with the unpredictability of improvisation to create an ever-shifting, forward-pushing energetic force.

Since the project started in 2016, the Italian duo have released a potent run of gnarly, precision-tooled 12”s on their own NineTimesNine label, most of which have been repressed multiple times in response to widespread demand. Elsewhere, their ‘300000003’ track (released on Planet Rhythm in 2018) was a breakout success, catching a viral wave, going through repress after repress and breaking their take on acid techno to a huge new audience. In 2020, they moved from a vinyl-only operation for their own productions to offering their music up digitally, and welcoming other artists into the fold.

But it’s as a live act 999999999 have truly carved out their reputation, presenting a hardware-only set with the impact and intensity to set alight the world’s largest techno events. Their rap sheet of past achievements is long and winding, taking in monolithic festivals and intense basements alike – every different strand of Awakenings, Fabric in London, Fabrik in Madrid, Crssd in San Diego, Fuse in Brussels, Sub Club in Glasgow, Kompass in Ghent, Possession (with Boiler Room) in Paris. They’ve completed tours across the Americas, in Asia, Australia and through every pulsing pocket of party energy in Europe.
