Dub Selekta Podcast 5.0: Mochipet (PETNATION edition)

We’re super stoked to be throwing down this special PETNATION edition mix as part of our Dub Selekta Podcast series. If you’ve been paying attention to our facebook fanpage then you’ll have seen it blowing up with lots to do in relation to the newly resurected monthly in San Francisco that we’re very proud to be apart of; PETNATION.

The first round of PETNATION started out as a series of underground warehouse parties headed by San Fran’s Mochipet. After a brief hiatus, and some time moving from the underground warehouse scene to the more legit venues, PETNATION has been resurrected with a special Hallowe’en party on Oct 30th at Public Works. Headlining the night is one of our faves, Mark Instinct, as he plays alongside Mochipet and DCarls with local residents Slayers Club, Skulltrane, Free Krush, Question, Octopod, Taso and Supplying Demand. To coincide with the newly relaunched monthly, we’ve teamed up with Mochipet and the Daly City Records crew to bring you a special edition podcast rinsing out tunes by artists lined up on the bill!

If you’re not in the San Fran area and won’t be able to make it out to the party, thats ok! We’re all about exposing new and exciting artists here at Dub Selekta so checkout the mix and discover some new tunes or relish in some favourites!

In addition to this new mix, Mochipet also just dropped a new mashup/remix album, 10 Reasons to Love Hate Dubstep, that he’s offered up as a free download. Check out this link for an album of remixes that range from Hip-Hop to Hipster to straight up well.. Def Leppard! Between the stacked tracklisting and the sweet album artwork, this album is worth a peek.

Big Up Magazine Review: Mochipet- 10 Reasons to Love Hate Dubstep

Ok guys, don’t be fooled. This is not even dubstep. Most of it anyways. And it’s not even a 10-track album. Better yet, it’s a compilation of 16 remixes/mashups by Mochipet, whose mind we’re not gonna even try to figure out. But the point is: it is new, it is free, and it has a 420 song on it. The rest of it, you’re definitely gonna either love or hate. Mochipet ain’t no half-stepping!

Elfkowitz & Mimi Page- Shadowdancing Available TODAY 10/18

ARTIST: Efkowitz & Mimi Page
TITLE: Shadowdancing
LABEL: Daly City Records
FORMAT: Digital
RELEASE DATE: 10/18/2011

As part of the great success of the Mimi Page Harmonious Heartbeats remix album, the highly prolific and talented Elfkowitz (Ian Lefkowitz) contributed an absolute musical masterpiece, one of my favorites on the album by far, and upon hearing it, Mimi Page immediately pursued the project further. With his signature dark and psychedelic beats and powerfully driving sub-bass, Elfkowitz creates a marvelous and intricate backdrop for the light, ethereal, and absolutely breath-taking vocals of Mimi Page. With styles that act as a perfect counter-balance to each-other, Mimi Page and Elfkowitz are getting ready for the release of their 4-track collaborative album, a melancholy yet beautifully uplifting ride through the heart and soul of these passionate musicians.

Make sure to check out my favorite song on the album, “You Lead I’ll Follow”. Soft yet powerful, sultry yet classy, this song is a quintessential example of the power and unlocked potential of musical collaboration. The signature styles of both artists remain starkly present, but an untapped well of newfound inspiration is most assuredly unlocked in the collaborative process.

We’re bringing out Canada’s heaviest hitter in the bass game for this one, and he’s ready to cause some serious HEAT San Francisco! A longtime veteran of EXCISION’s Rottun Recordings, and currently part of the Subhuman crew, this man is by far a force to be reckoned with. With his fierce, penetrating beats and filthy basslines, it’s no wonder MARK INSTINCT has everyone craving more on the dancefloor… from Australia all the way to the US. Get ready Bay Area, it’s about to get deliciously GRIMEY!

MARK INSTINCT (Rottun Recordings | Canada)

A purveyor of fierce, penetrating beats and filthy basslines, Mark Instinct is one bad muthafucka – literally. With roots in metal, hip hop, punk and drum and bass there is no sound off limits for this young producer from Calgary who’s firmly secured himself amongst some of dubstep and drum and bass’s elite. Known for his explosive stage performance and his suave nature behind the decks, you can be sure that Mark Instinct will have your dancefloor poppin. With 2011 appearances at Starscape and Shambhala, and a Australian/US Tour already under his belt, you can be sure Mark Instinct has carved a solid name in the bass game.

This past year Mark’s first EP, Get Loud, was dropped on Rottun Records and featured 5 weighty tracks that have all gotten major playback with everyone from Excision to Bare rinsing them. Currently working on EP releases for both Rottun Recordings and Subhuman Recordings, you can be sure that Mark’s next release will be showing up on Beatport’s Top 100 chart, where he’s had numerous other releases land. In addition to his upcoming releases watch for forthcoming collaborations featuring the likes of Armani Reign, Messinian and Death by Stereo’s Efrem Shulz.

DCARLS (Simplify|Baltimore)
DCarls is coming with the HEAT from Baltimore, Maryland. This talented Glitch and Dubstep producer has his second EP release on Simplifly Recordings title “Flavorhythm 2″. DCarls does not hold back on ”The Heat” in this roller coaster tune with the twists, turns, and screwing bass drops in this a hand crafted masterpiece.

There is no question as to why his tracks are flying up Beatport’s charts. Able to muscle basslines around with the best of them, his compositional and theoretical background in piano and guitar make this stuff look easy, but the intricacy and precision are unbelievable. With an infectious, heavy metal riff and pulsing drums that break down into drum & bass with great regularity, “Splash” is about as subtle as a sledgehammer.
There is no question, not a shred of doubt that this kid is a superstar waiting to break out… and we can’t wait to say “we told you so.”

SF Weekly Mochipet on Wearing His Big Purple Dinosaur Suit, and Playing LovEvolution This Saturday

While many DJs can say they’ve performed alongside dance music icons such as Rusko, Bassnectar, and Mary Anne Hobbs, few can honestly claim that they’ve worn a purple furry dinosaur suit the entire time. Bay Area native Mochipet , who began his career with his well-known album, Girls Love Breakcore, has demonstrated his passion for music through residences in L.A., his founding of Daly City Records, and his collaboration with a 20-piece orchestra that performed his composition “Dessert Search for Techno Baklava” at Carnegie Hall, among other notable venues. He chatted with All Shook Down about breakcore, his favorite mochi flavor, and playing LovEvolution this Saturday.
