An unidentified plant, the juice of which was an offering to the Gods, consumed by priests during sacrifice. Delivered to Earth from the Heavens by an eagle. The deity Soma was the master of plants and healer of disease.
Mark Rubin has an insatiable hunger for the unheard. Through downtempo rhythms, spacious melodies, and alien textures, Mark invokes a mysterious ritual in a modern, strange context. Mark came to Austin to study film production and digital media. He was immediately sucked into psychedelic music and arts culture. There, Mark began creating his own dub, electronica, and glitch-hop concoctions as he became inspired by the eclectic surroundings that Austin has to offer. Mark now has official releases on Shanti Planti, Gravitas Recordings, and Merkaba Music.

Soulacybin was incubated as pure auditory information, coded deep in alien realms of distant, future space. This auditory entity was sequenced into the DNA of a mushroom spore, then propelled through time and space on a trajectory for Planet Earth. Upon arriving on our planet, the spore germinated in the form of Earth music, bringing its intricately coded information to us through precisely arranged sound and vibration. Representing the bio-mechanically fused organisms of its home world, Soulacybin balances deep, squishy realms of organic dub with digital, hyper-active percussion and slimy, stretchy basslines. Thriving on the nervous system of musician John LaBoone, Soulacybin is here to bring its yet-unknown alien message to lovers of deep, patient, thoughtful music.
