Hello reader. How are you doing today? What's that?
You're feeling like a good dose of experimental IDM? Well, what a
coincidence! That's exactly the type of music that Mochipet makes!
Mochipet, an unfortunately unknown artist from Los
Angeles, has just released a new album on the criminally obscure
Btrendy label. Not only that, it's free! Yes, if you go over to www.mochipet.com,
you'll be able to order yourself a free cdr. A free cdr. But enough
about the price (or lack of one), how's the music? Well, to tell the
truth, it's pretty darn good. There are a whole plethora of IDM
musicians out there, and Mochipet actually manages to stand out from
the rest. Take "Chicken Guiro," for example. Combining
broken beats and wonderfully selected samples, the song manages to be
both hilarious and enjoyable. The sounds of a singing chicken go irresistibly
well with the complex beats and synth melodies. It sounds somewhat
like a less-turntable based Coldcut track.
Meanwhile, "Wu-Tang O.D.B. Shimmy Remix" is
a play on rap music. Mochipet takes samples from rap songs, heavily
manipulates them, and then flawlessly inserts them into his songs. The
result is a noisy, harsh, yet amazingly funky track that could turn
out to be of the most enjoyable IDM songs of the year.
But that's not all. There's also a twisted, contorted
banjo song, an awesome remix of a Radiohead song, and tons
more. This could, quite possibly, be one of the best IDM albums of the
2002. Go over to Mochipet's website and ORDER THIS! IT'S FREE!! WHAT
MORE COULD YOU WANT??
