Check out a couple of Mixes featuring Get Your Whistle Wet by Mochipet and Hustle Heads
Check out the new Rhythm Incursions Mix with: Mochipet, Free The Robots, Nosaj Thing, and more.
We return to the more ‘regular’ Rhythm Incursions shows this week, and with both Trick and Waxfactor unfortunately otherwise engaged and unable to step up as they normally do (real life’s crazy like that!) I’m strapping on my presenter goggles and bringing you an hour of fresh new music. Considering it’s been about 2 months since the last show, there’s quite a few bits to get stuck into from the likes of Mochipet, Mighty Joseph, Uncle Lew, Nosaj Thing, Mweslee, Dilla, Samiyam and Free The Robots. Oh and we’ve got a mini-feature on the excellent Various Production too.
Mochipet Remixes Broken Electronics by Meanest Man Contest
Meanest Man Contest's "We Blame You" is the first in a series of odds-and-ends EPs from the San Francisco/Los Angeles hip-hop/electronic pop duo. Three remixes of MMC faves – by Paris-based producer Débruit (Musique Large), San Francisco laptop king Mochipet (Daly City Records), and Dutch up-and-comer Multi-Panel – are rounded out by a cover from Roman Ruins (Gold Robot) and a new MMC track.
I'm inspired, of course, by Futureman of Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, with his amazing Synthaxe Drumitar covered in touch pads. A friend of mine had this Rock-Band guitar controller that wasn't working with his XBOX anymore, so i gutted it. I bought the BOSS DR-110 off of Craig's List and it was a perfect match: 6 non-velocity-sensitive drum pads and a clearly marked circuit board. My original plan was to install the entire drum machine into the controller, and just have an audio output. Logistically though, the cat-5 connection made more sense. AND because it's detachable (thanks to a female-to-female coupler) I still have a working drum machine i can use without the guitar!!!
This isn't the best performance, i guess, but hey, this thing is brand new!!!!
MY NEXT PLAN involves the installation of a Moog 3P circuit into my cat. :-)

THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO HAVE MADE A REMIX FOR THE CONTEST IT WILL BE VERY HARD TO JUDGE THERE ARE SOME AMAZING ONES IN THERE!! PLEAES EMAIL ALL REMIXES TO: firstname.lastname@example.org
David Wang is one funny pickle. Born in Taiwan to a rocket scientist and kindergarten teacher, he has been repping California under the name Mochipet since the age of 15. In the last few years, he has taken to wearing a purple dinosaur suit onstage, while issuing full-lengths dedicated to the arts of abstract techno, breakcore, and underground hip-hop. He’s like Kid Koala meets Venetian Snares or DJ Krush meets Bogdan Raczynski: you never know what he’s going to do next. 2007 saw Wang’s own Daly City imprint release Girls Love Breakcore. With the help of Doormouse, Otto Von Schirach, and Aaron Spectre, that record reconstituted Justin Timberlake, Invader Zim, and the act of sexually pleasing a miniature stallion into glitchy, high BPM, hardcore IDM that, for reasons evident in and of itself, was never really adored by an overwhelming percentage of females. Skip to six months later and, for fans of Girls Love Breakcore, he has gone upside our heads with a complete mind-bender. Microphonepet comes out of extreme leftfield as one of the strongest hip-hop albums of 2008. It pools the cream of Mochi-beats as collected from 2003 to 2008 and pairs them with the finest MCs in underground rap today. Freestyle Fellowship’s Mykah9, Dopestyle (KutMasta Kurt), Casual and Opio of Hieroglyphics, oonceoonce, a couple of the Crown City Rockers and Living Legends, and many more all lend their precise vision and ballsy mic skills to a set of righteous, heavily electronic beats that run the style gamut from Prefuse 73 glitch-hop to De La Soul old school. There’s more flavor here than a year’s supply of Mr. Noodles. "Girls & Boys & Toys" bends the bassline from Coldcut’s "Just For The Kick" into a warped dancehall chugger. Meanwhile, Jahcoozi spits musings on cruising for chicks, whenever Wang lets the constant cut-and-splice land on a beat and glide long enough for coherence. Mochi must have spent weeks dicing up those words, and the effort thoroughly pays off. The Dopestyle and Casual-aided "Mr. Malaise" dips in with an even more twisted bassline and a subtle touch of dub organ over a 4/4 beat, like Mr. Oizo discovering a hidden grime influence with much rejoicing. The hip-hop here will equally please fans of the genre, early-’90s fundamentalists, and glitch fusion fanatics alike. Mochipet’s thick Rolodex blesses the work with an equal amount of vocal and thematic variety, far from the too-many-chefs syndrome that has plagued recent Prefuse 73 works. By itself, that’s merely great, but knowing Microphonepet came from a man who often butchers distorted electronics into 180 BPM nightmares makes this album a godsend. You have to wonder how much this Wang guy is capable of. We may be looking at the second coming of Luke Vibert, only with a better sense of humor.

Taste the Mochi
Mochipet -- the ever-fruitful laptop lothario. BY KIMBERLY CHUN
"SONIC REDUCER "If you build it, they will come!" A few famous first words from David Wang — otherwise known as the ever-fruitful laptop lothario Mochipet — when we spoke recently, and something to ponder as I gazed around his so-chill, so-frolicsome, and oh-so-free Fourth of July barbecue bash in Golden Gate Park. In a green, leafy nook near the fields where the buffalo roam, a DJ tent is up and housing such pals as Phon.o and Flying Skulls. Funk 'n' Chunk fire the grill with impressive flamethrower action, and Christian of the Tasty crew plunges fish-sauce-marinated chicks into the hot grease for Filipino fried chicken. Throw a Tecate on the whole thing, pet your mochi, and call it an awesome party despite the fact that, as Wang confides, "we did get started a little late because there were some rangers sniffing around." Wang is accustomed to building where few have ventured before — and as a collaborator extraordinaire who has worked with everyone from Spank Rock to Ellen Allien, he's brought together communities of sorts in the most unlikely of locales (hence the name of his label, Daly City Records). Earlier that week we chatted by phone in lieu of digging into Hong Kong deep-fried pork chops and a sweet, cheap Filipino breakfast ("It's like soul food for Asians — everything's either deep-fried or smoked") at Gateway restaurant near the literal and spiritual home of Daly City Records. The occasion is his forthcoming Mission Creek Music and Arts Festival, an improv-y and likely collaborative performance, as well as a whopping release show at Club Six for his latest disc, Microphonepet (Daly City). A formidable gathering of all of Wang's work and collaborations since 2001, Microphonepet overwhelms with its awesome sonics, roving from "Tangle" with Salva and Epcot and "Get Your Whistle Wet" with the Hustle Heads, to "Vnecks" with 215 the Freshest Kids and "Lazy Days" with KFlay. Where has Wang been hiding his crazily deep-fried, deliciously bleepy hip-hop production skills all this time? "Guess it got to the point where last year I got 20 tracks, so I just put them out as a record, because some of them are really cool," he explains. "I thought they were really diverse and it would be a good segue to my next record." Wang has been pouring plenty of energy into that coming disc, which may be released on Daly City or an imprint like Ninjatune. He describes it as more personal: he's skating progressive, jazz, and South American musical influences off trad Korean and Chinese sounds, and acoustic guitar off heavy electronics. "I've always written ... traditional songs but I've never really been comfortable releasing it," says Wang, who describes his early aural interests as veering toward jazz and salsa. "All my records before this have been experiments — me trying new things. But they haven't been as personal as this next record. I think of it as my first record, really. I'm a slow bloomer." *
