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.

We may have been rocked out of our secret warehouse space last year, but this year we’re back and legit as ever at PUBLIC WORKS SF and we figure what better night to come back to life, than the eve of Halloween?

We’ve rallied up the Daly City Records BASS family and are gearing up for one insane night of beats and glitched out ghouls like nothing you’ve ever seen before!

We’re bringing out Canada’s heaviest hitter in the bass game for this one, and he’s ready to cause some serious HEAT San Francisco! A longtime veteran of EXCISION’s Rottun Recordings, and currently part of the Subhuman crew, this man is by far a force to be reckoned with.

Get ready Bay Area, it’s about to get deliciously GRIMEY!

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.”
