I Am Som shankar
From Los Angeles, California, I am an independent musician working primarily in the electronic music world. I make slow (downtempo) stuff, and fast (tekno) stuff. I hope you like some or all of it.
I’m not that grouchy, I swear!

Bandcamp site is updated! I've placed my old, super old, way old Demo CD called Where Are You? there for you and everyone you know to check out. I've also created an album called Post Beach where I will post new work-in-progresso songs as I create them. Could be fun, no?

I've also posted a link to my Reverb.com shop where I sell and trade Music Equipment. As an electronic musician, I collect and trade a lot of gear and this is where I usually sell something to make room for something else. If you've any interest in such things, do check it out as I keep it up to date often!
