Traversing a multi-instrumental voyage through wacky circus dance music, expansive jazzy nuances, and left-field sound design, Mark Rubin has sculpted his own signature blend of sophisticated dub and dance floor downtempo.
While studying digital media in college, Mark’s early years of reggae & dub experimentation in the studio alchemized into fruition as Somatoast. The earliest performances of Somatoast could be found in Austin’s eclectic co-op parties and electronic music events. Mark became deeply inspired by Austin’s live music culture, circus performance artists, and the psychedelic renaissance he recognized happening on a global scale.
Somatoast has become a quintessential name in the world of psychedelic bass music without ever having latched on to the label. Mark’s sound is diverse and ever-evolving.
He never settles for stagnation among any one genre, yet each song is distinctly his. Such a concoction welcomes experimentation and emotion on the dance floor both in the music and the listener— ushering a fresh and unique take on electronic music and the sound system experience.
