magazine, Someone Else has been a major force in forwarding
minimal/experimental dance music since 1998 with label projects Tuning Spork and Foundsound, Unfoundsound moving a once-obscure sub-genre of house music onto the world's dance music stage.
Someone Else's San Francisco performance will feature material from his new album "Pen Caps and Colored Pencils" (cd/2x12") on Foundsound Records.
