Traversing a multi-instrumental voyage through wacky circus dance music, jazzy nuances, and left-field sound design, Mark Rubin has sculpted his own signature blend of sophisticated dub and downtempo as Somatoast.
Mark began his journey through music as a young child on the drum set. Piano soon followed, then guitar, bass, and a full range of percussive instruments. By the time he was in high school, he was writing music on multiple instruments, producing his work as well as local bands. While studying digital media in college, Mark’s years of 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. Somatoast became deeply inspired by Austin’s ever-evolving live music culture, circus performance artists, and the psychedelic renaissance he recognized was happening on a global scale.
