Ui (pronounced "ooo-eee") was an American post-rock/funk band based in New York City, which started in 1990, [cite web |url=http://www.southern.com/southern/band/UI000/biog.html |title=Ui biography |publisher=Southern Records ] and ended mid-2000s. The group was started by Sasha Frere-Jones and Clem Waldmann. Wilbo Wright joined the group in 1993. The group's songs are often described as "bass-heavy", as the band frequently uses two bass guitars. [cite news |title=Ui—"Answers" |first=David |last=Christensen |date=July 11, 2003 |url=http://www.fakejazz.com/reviews/2003/ui.shtml |publisher=fakejazz.com] Other unique instruments used by the band include banjo, synthesizers, tuba and timpani. Their music style is described to range between funk, dub and electronica. The group has a high reliance on samplers and other studio equipment to overdub and articulate rhythms.
