“Autonomous Music is the type of projects that should exist in a heap. This organization uses music and performances live from an impressive list of artists as a tool for social change. Art as a hammer that hits the nail of the meanings.
A very good album with a very good proposal back.”
What is Petnation?
A lot of really talented producers have asked to remix my tunes and but there have never been enough avenues for them to do it through. This is why I am starting Mochipet’s Petnation. Petnation will give up-and-coming producers as well as anyone who Loves Music a chance to remix some Mochipet tunes and get showcased doing it.
How does Petnation Work?
We will be putting remix parts for a new Mochipet Song every month, some unreleased, and some from the back catalog. Producers will get one month to remix the song and then submit it to us via this email email@example.com. Mochipet will personally pick one winner per month to showcase on Daly City Records and promoted via Mochipet’s 20,000+ email list and Social Networks such as Facebook and Twitter. Then Every 3 months Mochipet will pick one of the past winners to do his own solo release on the new label “Petnation” a subsidiary of Daly City Records; through this we will help get your songs into Video Games, Commercials, etc. Then at the end of the Year Mochipet will pick one lucky winner to get flown out and put up to perform for a show of his choice on the new Mochipet Stage that is currently in development.
How do I get started?
Download the Remix Parts below for this Month and start having some fun with it. email it back to us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the mp3 (320k), short bio, and a photo of yourself. We will be in touch if you are picked as the winner!
Why are you doing this?
Because we really do care about the music.
Q: How do I make a request for remix parts of a specific Mochipet Song?

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.
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.
They say good things come to those that wait, and this is definitely worth the wait! Mochipet has delivered to us an exclusive mix set of Mochipet tunes for our readers alongside an interview with our very own Denver-based Tenbucc2. With the new album CHICXULUB released last week on 1320 Records, as well as recent EPs on MalLabel and his own Daly City Records, Mochipet has nowhere to go but up!

Selling out shows across the country and enjoying international superstar DJ status, Santa Cruz’ Bassnectar has inspired Bay Area bassheads. Two of the best, Mochipet and Minnesota play Temple in SF this Thursday, June 30 to celebrate Mochipet’s Spacezilla EP, released today. The release also features remixes from Udachi, Minnesota and Konekta.
