Palenke Soultribe, a live electronic production collective are taking electronic music to new heights by deconstructing Afro-Colombian rhythms and blending them with modern beats, catchy bass lines and synthesized arpeggios. Based in Los Angeles, Palenke Soultribe (PST) puts on energetic shows, and are consistently releasing musically interesting albums and remixes, always pushing the envelope visually and conceptually. They represent a new generation of Colombian musicians ready to break all the rules.

Palenke Soultribe was originally formed by producer/bassist Juan Diego Borda (a.k.a. Insectosound) and producer/ keyboardist Andres “Popa” Erazo. Later joined by drummer Argel Cota and percussionists Clodomiro Montes, PST enjoys working as a collective, inviting guest producers, singers, songwriters and instrumentalists to their shows and to contribute on their albums.
