Undoubtedly one of the most colorful and wild characters, in the electronic music world, David Wang (aka Mochipet) never fails to be an interesting act to catch. Mochipet has an enormous discography, with releases on numerous labels, and collaborations with dozens of performers, producers and MC’s. His label, Daly City Records, currently releases some of most eclectic and genre bending bass music being produced today, including tracks by Nelson’s own Yan Zombie, who will also be playing Saturday’s show. Mochipet is also known to play in a purple dinosaur costume, unleashing mayhem as the “purple crunkasaurus”. His last two shows in Nelson were unforgettable.
Joining Mochipet will be the legendary MC zulu, known for his rapid fire, randomized cadence, and his choice of uncategorizable rhythms as a backdrop. One of the underground’s most in demand ragga and futuristic dancehalls mc’s Zulu has worked extensively with both Mochipet and Yan Zombie this year. Zombie is fresh from having won the Kootenay Music Award for best electronic producer, and has just released his remix of mochipet’s “mochipet is evil” on Daly city records. This show will be a tag team battle royale of giant superheroes, badmon MC’s and genius zombies, all tied together with visuals from Nelson’s mystery visualist, INVISIBLE.
