Another DUB MISSION debut ! Ten years in the making, musical veteran MOCHIPET will bring a special set dedicated to the more roots and dancehall side of dubstep from his collection to DUB MISSION. Born in Taiwan to a rocket scientist father and a kindergarten teacher mother, David Y Wang aka Mochipet has traveled the globe from Europe to Asia and everywhere in between. With many overseas and U.S. tours under his belt, he has had his music featured in videos games with the Beastie Boys, and performed by a twenty-piece orchestra at New York’s Carnegie Hall. David sees no boundaries in music, which is why he has worked with the likes of Professional Skateboarder Ray Barbee, techno queen Ellen Allien, jazz drummer Weasel Walter of The Flying Luttenbachers, and mashup DJ Z-Trip. Recently his songs have been dropped by DJs like Bassnectar. He just finished a tour with Sound Tribe Sector 9, and is currently in the studio, working on his new release Rawr Means I Love You which is due out later this year.


Mochipet Featured on Cassette Blog

Posted by cassetteblog | May 15, 2012  |

Vamos a arrancar con toda la fuerza del espíritu africano, ese ser golpeado que indiferente a la afrenta continúa festejando a puro el ritmo y alegría. Que mejor manera de encarar el martes con la reversión de sonidos de África que hacen los The Busy Twist, dúo de UK que produce una peculiar y equilibrada mezcla entre sonidos bass y folklore del continente negro.

Les compartimos “Floor Excitement EP”, su última edición, y el track “Ldn Luanda”, el cual han liberado hace poquito para bajada gratuita.
Ya que estamos revisando la visión electrónica de los ritmos africanos, vamos a visitar a Paris a Dj Mo-Laudi y le robamos de su soundcloud dos tracks buenísimo. El primero, es el remix que hizo de “Yapa”, de Le Pas Sage. Bella pieza melancólica, como la foto de un lugar colorido en el cual todavía el hombre habla con la tierra. Y “Secousse” de Secousse All stars, un kuduro energético como para ponerse a saltar.

Luego cambiamos de latitud, y nos vamos a escuchar la tremenda colaboración que han compuesto Mc Zulu y Mochipet, dos artistas que admiramos. Han llamado ska bass a este extraño estilo que producen en “Year of The Dragon (Ska Rmx)”… y si, puede ser…. la cuestión es que nunca nos hubiéramos imaginado la voz de Mc Zulu sobre un track tan rocker… y ¡menos a Mochipet haciendo esa base! Como sea, festejamos el desprejuicio de estos amigos, por que gracias a ello han producido un track veraniego que va a estar sonando en nuestras cabezas por varios meses.

Miren bien dentro de la info debajo del track (entrando en soundcloud), por que allí hay un link para bajarlo gratis.

Para cerrar dubeando, les compartimos la última edición de Urban World Records, sello de mirada mundial que continua con sus lindas y eclécticas ediciones. Ahora le ha tocado a “Less Corruption Remixes EP” de Love Avalanche feat MC BenJammin. El EP está compuesto por el track original, un regaaaaaaaaazo contundente con aire old school, y varios remixes. Las versiones pasan por varias rítmicas, como digital dancehall, moombahton, champeta, digital dub, dubstep, drum & bass y otras mutaciones. Entre los remixers podrán encontrar nombres de artistas que suenan seguido en Cassette: ACEtone Studio, Bigote, David Superpendejo, Andres Digital, Triplet Trix, DJ Trece y Paul Damerau.

TBT Label Series: Daly City Records

By: Alex Alden

Bay Area DJ/Producer, Mochipet, is known for his loud purple dinosaur suit and dance floor bangers. However the musical maestro has long had his finger in the business side of the industry as well, running his own record label, Daly City Records.

The label’s namesake, Daly City, is the oft forgotten neighbor of colorful San Francisco, CA. Mochipet, or David Wang as he is known sans dino suit, grew up there with his dad. Virtually unknown outside of the Bay Area, Mochipet decided to name the label after the town because he considers Daly City as well as Daly City Records to be his home. In an interview with The Brain Trust, he mentioned that, “It’s great to see people from around the world recognize the name ‘Daly City’ even though they don’t know the city. It’s like building something from scratch and re-appropriating something on a personal level.”

As illustrated through his commitment to home, family is important to Mochipet, and he has brought that commitment to lasting relationships to Daly City Records. All of the artists that have released on the label are in some way personally connected to him and he calls the label “a network of good family and friends.” Due to this emphasis on personal relationships over musical genre, Daly City Records avoids classification.

Mochipet relishes in this fact, saying “I wanted it to be personal and not just another label with a ‘niche’ that spits out the same things over and over again. I love all kinds of music and really wanted Daly City to reflect that.” The artists currently releasing on the label are definitely varied. Some of these up and comers include Living Stone, Th’Mole and Sovereign Sect.

Living Stone is based out of Montreal, Canada and creates deep bassy beats tossed with a dose of dubstep. Reno native Th’Mole puts on a full costumed show and dabbles in different genres but always throws in a splash of humor. His track ‘I love Unicorns’ is a catchy homage to Th’Mole’s love of the mythical animal. Sovereign Sect, hailing from Fargo, ND, is a livetronica group who describe their sound as “as unique as it is diverse.”

As with any modern, digitalized label, Daly City is faced with the threat of internet piracy, but Mochipet isn’t worried about it citing the fact that since his artists are smaller, the people who listen to them are more connected to the music and less likely to steal. “…when your audience doesn’t really care what you are doing and just want to listen to that hit song, that’s where piracy problems come in, because you are trying to make money off of someone who doesn’t connect with your artist on a personal level. It’s like selling McDonalds food. They just want it fast and cheap. They don’t care where they get it from. That’s not what we are trying to do. We can give away our music for free and our fans will still donate or come support at shows. They are interested in what we are doing. “

The aim of Daly City records is “to expose people to awesome music they might have never heard.” Bigger names such as eDIT (Glitch Mob) and Daedelus (Ninja Tune) who have become quite well known have released on Daly City but that was before they made it big and helped gain exposure to a larger audience. Mochipet is not interested in signing a major act and is more focused on the music and keeping the label unique. He says,” Why would I want to make another label of something that’s already out there? I think this is what will set us apart in the long run. I think the labels people remember are the ones that have their own character, one’s that have their own personality.”

Very refreshing to see a label sticking to its ideals in the industry.

Mochipet with MC Zulu and Yan Zombie

By Sijay James

Saturday April 21

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.

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.

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.

Take a little peak into our Other World, if you dare:

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.
