Music: Someone Else - Elsewhere EP [Foundsound 20]


someone else
elsewhere ep
(remixes by michal ho and kriss)

release date: march 30 2009

sean o'neal (a.k.a. someone else) got started djing in philadelphia amidst his local piers such as king britt, josh wink, pete moss, rob paine, and the list goes on. and then someone else became known for gritty minimal techno hits like "bedroom eyes", "picture perfect", his remix of heartz4's "intimacy girl", and many others. but now is another time, and someone else wants to bring back some of the deep tech-house vibes that he was raised on in his hometown, yet still remaining himself all along. 

sooooo, that said, foundsound cofounder someone else delivers more bomb-diggity good times with elsewhere ep. this time, he delves into a more organic and soulful side of loopy dancefloor tech-house suitable for the tasteful clubs and (maybe more so) the outdoors -- incorporating a smoother and catchier side of his trademark cut-up vocals. plus, you get a wicked remix by michal ho of tuning spork fame, and a jaw-dropping digital bonus remix by unfoundsound’s latest pride-and-joy, kriss.

on a1 – “sunny day in smallville” -- you get a 10:15 long-play with a deep progression that'll make a dancefloor spin and grin. this anthemic chugger drives with a rolling bassline, a bouncy swing, dense yet dissonant percussion, and sliced 'n' diced vocals which are rich and emotive. it's simple, tracky and complex all at once, and it makes an excellent dj tool.

on b1 – “funny day elsewhere -- you get a catchy, vocal snippy tech-house joyride with a dubby bassline, blurry bongos and soulful delight. 

on b2 – “funny day elsewhere (michal ho remix)” -- the tuning spork mofo keeps it housey, bouncy and abstract.

then the digital bonus track – “sunny day in smallville (kriss remix)” -- the young italian newbie dishes out a mind-numbing minimal club-stormer.

go ahead and poop in your pants.
