Mochipet on Autonomous Music’s Va-Array Vol. 2

Va-Array Vol 2 (Autonomous Music – Free DL!)

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.

His proposal is specifically political, and if you know even at some of the names of the musicians involved you will see that everything is more than real, that are putting force into a target clear and thus are making an important contribution. The roster is composed by Dj Vadim, Filastine, Quantic, Mochipet, Natasha Kmeto, The Polish Ambassador, Resident Anti-Hero, Octopus Nebula, Ott, Ott & The All-Seeing I, Ill-Esha, Emancipator, Alex B, Anomie Belle, Blietech, Conduits, Cry Wolf, Dr Israel, Etheric Double, Intelepaths, Invisible Allies, Little People, Marley Carroll, Papadosio, Paper Diamond, Paper Tiger, Phutureprimitive, Pnuma Trio, Random Rab, The Great Muandane, The Nadis WarriorsYppah and Unlimited Gravity.

Last November 28 have released their second compilation for so-called free descent “Array Vol 2″, which contains tracks from all of their artists.” As it is logical, because the reason that unites all of these names is not a musical line but an eagerness in common, styles that handles are the most heterogeneous. On this album they may listen to hip hop, house, future step, indie hop, IDM, synth hop, trip hop, dubstep, reggae dub, techno pop and electro. But mysteriously this stylistic explosion runs evenly. The disk draws a journey that will unveil the adventure of track in track.

A very good album with a very good proposal back.”

Ill-esha: DIY Duchess Droppin’ Bass in the Bay


Under the playful name of ill-eshaElysha Zaide has made her mark from her hometown of Vancouver since the late nineties. She started off humbly enough as a house vocalist before moving into drum & bass. Then she caught the DJ bug, quickly earned her first residency, playing to twenty-odd people at a martini bar. Though she was fired when they found out she was only 16, the experience was invaluable. Soon, ill-esha was not only DJing and singing, but getting credits on records and producing her own material. Since 2001, her name has appeared on dozens of singles, while her albums and EPs have become more ambitious.

As the 2000’s wore on, Zaide felt that drum and bass was becoming repetitive and stagnant. Her full-length debut The Perfect Circuit – a collection of heady, trip-hoppy downtempo jams from 2008 – showed ill-esha at a crossroads. Disillusioned with jungle and romance, but not yet wholly dedicated to bass, she locked herself in the studio. With the help of a few friends, she learned to balance live recordings with processing and synthesis, and exorcised her emotronic demons.

Around this time, as her passion for West Coast Bass expanded, ill-esha co-founded the popular Glitch Hop Forum. Through this, Zaide forged professional relationships withMochipet (Daly City Records) and Dov (Muti Music), which would lead to seminal releases on both of their labels. As a side effect, it would also facilitate her move from Vancouver to the bass mecca of San Francisco in 2010.

As her talents in the studio developed, ill-esha has shifted focus from her vocal skills to her musicianship. Far too often, because of her gender, people assumed she was merely a singer, often asking her who made her beats after sets. As a result, she produced her first entirely instrumental album.

Released by Daly City in 2010, Circadian Rhythms silenced anyone who questioned her abilities as a producer. Zaide demonstrated her elegance in the string arrangements on “Sullen Sultry” and “Smoke & Mirrors,” her intricacy in the tasteful minimalism of “Stutterfly” and the thoughtful progression of “Hunting Season,” and her downright raunchiness in the dubstep moan of “Bedbug.” Reveriefollowed in 2011, gifting Muti Music with seven more slick, boom-bap influenced, bass heavy beats.

Where her voice on The Perfect Circuit was very clean and present in the mix, the vocal on Reverie closing track “Slide Over” was chopped up and processed. Lyrics used to be of the upmost importance early on, but now she uses her voice more subtly, as a texture than a conduit of specific meaning. Thus, though her vocals are prevalent on the warping soundscape single “Black Ice” and the Elusive History EP, they flow within the compositions, rather than on top of them, showing that she has many sharp tools at her disposal.

Less Than 3| Prehistoric Drops


Thud.. thud.. thud.. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMP!!!! If Jurassic Park were anything like Mochipet envisioned, that famous scene with the T-Rex might have sounded a lot like this. Recently, Mochipet released a new single off of his upcoming album Rawr Means I Love You. The single, Whomp-A-Saurus Sex. From about fourteen seconds in, Mochipet does what he can to let you know he isn’t joking around with this one. This is one of those tracks where the name is eerily onomatopoeic. When you listen to it, you may get the impression that you’re in a mechanized Jurassic Park, running from T-Sex.. er.. Rex, himself.
