Mole, Mochipet, Warrior Queen: FREE "Multimedia Maxi-Single"

What the heck is this “multimedia maxi-single,” you ask? It’s awesome!!

Th’ Mole’s JUMP JACK single features Mochipet, Warrior Queen, DJ Amazing Clay and Bearmod, and includes three MP3’s, a music video, and animated GIF cover art.


Turbo-powered “future rapper” Th’ Mole refers to Jump Jack as “exercise music.“It’s something to work out to,” he says. “Something to get your blood pumping, to make your muscles big and get you in shape.”

Originally hailing from Jamaica, Warrior Queen is known primarily for her work with the widely acclaimed The Bug (Ninja Tune). She has an extensive body of work in dancehall, garage, dubstep and beyond, including collaborations with Skream and DJ Zinc. She has voiced the iconic Bug single “Poison Dart” as well as the stunning album track “Insane”. The Bug and Warrior Queen are currently completing a series of US dates with Nine Inch Nails.

Mochipet, AKA David Wang, runs Daly City Records and endorses products such as M-Audio and Puma. He is currently working on several new projects including ones with Joyo Velarde, Lyrics Born, Antipop Consortium’s M. Sayyid, and Chicago’s MC Zulu. Listen to Mochipet’s remix of Th’ Mole, featuring Warrior Queen, on the Jump Jack maxi-single.

DJ Amazing Clay, whose DJ career stretches back some 27 years (circa ‘Planet Rock’, an early staple of Clay’s sets), founded ‘Equipe Curtisom Rio’ ‘ one of Rio’s earliest funk sound systems. Until his recent collaboration with Th’ Mole (remixing “Go Horsie”), Clay’s definitive production work has remained almost completely within the Brazilian baile funk scene, gracing recordings by Mr. Catra, Deize Tigrona and MC Dido, flanked by the unparalleled baile funk label, Man Recordings.

Bearmod (AKA Blingmod, Briefcase Rockers) hails from Hawaii but resides in Montreal, hanging tough with the Turbo Crunk crew, making people dance to the rocket-powered bleep hop, all in the name of love. He and Th’ Mole met long ago when they were aimless young punks in Hawaii; now Bearmod regularly rocks crowds alongside such acts as Megasoid, Lazer Sword, Hovatron, Lunice, and more. For Jump Jack, Bearmod remixes the track “Heart Phire” (from the forthcoming album), transforming it from a hillbilly stomper to a city-slick stepper.

Th’ Mole has been spinning his weird web since the 90’s, jumping from the Bay Area to Hawaii to New Orleans and beyond, meanwhile running his own record label, Motion Recordings, and releasing music under a number of aliases. Th’ Mole’s music has been released by numerous indie labels (Hectic, Zhark, Anti-Party, Vaatican, etc.), and he has performed all over the world, sharing stages with such notables as DJ Krush, Venetian Snares, Living Legends, Meat Beat Manifesto, and more. Whoop-tee-doo!! On March 10, 2009, Daly City Records releases Th’ Mole’s Greatest Hits (Ha Ha Ha) Vol. 1 album.

Th’ Mole is currently booking Europe, Canada and the US for Spring. Contact for inquiries. Press kit at

New/upcoming Mole stuff

Check out the spicy new promo shots. They’re just in time for the upcoming single featuring Mochipet, Warrior Queen, DJ Amazing Clay, and more, available February 10 right here on this blog!

Following that, on March 10, Daly City Records will debut the Greatest Hits (Ha Ha Ha) Vol. 1 album. Check out what people are saying about it:

This time when Th’ Mole pops out of the hole, his trademark goofy hip hop grin bares some teeth, even as his heart remains firmly on his sleeve. Greatest Hits (Ha Ha Ha) Vol. 1 is Th’ Mole’s Daly City Records label debut. A combination of classic tracks, re-recordings, and new material, the elements converge to make his strongest and most personal collection thus far.

As a producer, The Mole manages to create a sound that is aggressive and fluid all at once; it’s the bombastic sound of the apocalypse, but with an over-riding feel of hopeful carelessness rather than one of desolation. In “Don’t Be Sad, Nothing Matters,” a warm classical flamenco guitar is stunningly contrasted with electrified beats, while a voiceover reassures us that we have nothing to fear “as the world plummets”. “Jump Jack” – an irresistibly-catchy dance jam that also features ragga vocalist Warrior Queen – continues the theme as he commands us: “Fuck the world! Just jump up off it… and do your dance.” Faced with the onslaught of depressing current events and trends, Th’ Mole has taken on the role of comforting father on a sinking ship.

His skills as an emcee have grown stronger than ever, as evidenced by the new remake of “Caitlin,” a signature song of his that tells a touching, apologetic tale of childhood playground betrayals. On the other end of both the lyrical and vocal spectrum is “I Hate You,” a reflection on love-gone sour, sung over a piano-plunk loop that could have been taken right out of Peanuts. “I baked you a cake and I don’t even cook. I’ll never bake another fucking cake ever again. And by the way, sometimes your breath stinks. And you’re fucking insensitive. Bitch.” It’s hilarious, and if you’ve followed Th’ Mole’s career, it’s also a jolt; the remorseful Mole of “Caitlin” is now calling a girl a bitch? In a lot of ways that sums up the Mole of 2009: ideals of love or society have been destroyed, and he’s mildly pissed about that. Charming humility is replaced with an inspiring sense of entitlement: he’s done asking us to see a better world; now he’s gonna build one whether we like it or not.

Overwhelmingly, however challenging the message, sheer fun still rules Th’ Mole’s self-made universe. The production is impeccable, the vocals and lyrics are dizzyingly creative, and as he manages to stamp a smiley face on everything, he creates an improbably refreshing sort of emo-comedy. Greatest Hits (Ha Ha Ha) Vol. 1 succeeds in being Th’ Mole’s most cohesive and satisfying album yet. To ice the cake, the Tick Tick Blam EP (included as an MP3 CD-extra, along with an exclusive music video) features remixes from the likes of Mochipet (Daly City/Bpitch Control), Robot Koch (of Jahcoozi, Kitty-Yo/Rough Trade), acclaimed Brazilian baile funk producer DJ Amazing Clay (Man Recordings), Bloody Snowman (Daly City), and Preshish Moments (Daly City).

– Collin Clay (Juha)

…its probably going to be the DOPEST release of 2009. I friggin love it.
– Nomar Slevik (SIQ/Dis.eased)
