Mochipet

Bio

Any artist bizarre enough to name his act after the Japanese term for "rice cake" is bound to make some pretty strange music, and he does. Born in Taipei, Taiwan where politicians box and girls in huts make cars crash, Mochipet (aka David Wang) has been making mischievous music since his mom bought him a stiletto guitar at the age of 15. After years of being in punk-disco-classical-blackmetal bands, Mochipet is his newest avatar. Released on Germany's bpitchcontrol (Ellen Allien), US Tigerbeat6 (Kid606), and his own label Btrendy, Mochipet's music has been described "...as potent as licking a page of micro-dots, bring on the hallucinations...."

Setting luscious acoustic samples to a framework of inverted, complex beats, Mochipet creates soundscapes of frenetic sliced'n'diced breaks that are at once soothing and unsettling. Mostly unsettling. Think Squarepusher dueling banjos with Venetian Snares.

Adding a healthy dose of the absurd, Mochipet's remixes take you on bizarre flights of Zappa-esque logic and arbitrary word association. Tracks such as Neil Diamond vs. King Diamond vs. the Lion King have met with mixed reactions; some listeners have paid to commission new remixes, while others have offered larger sums to make him stop.
