THE BAD NEWS: A few week ago Mochipet’s Laptop was stolen in New Orleans on tour. From the artist: “Hello all! I have some bad news to report. While I was on tour last week in New Orleans someone went into my bag and Stole My Laptop. I am trying to raise funds for a new laptop as it’s a integral part of my work and life. My friend Graz suggested that I put up a page with some of my music in return for donations, so I decided to make a 26 Track collection of my work…” Less then a week after David posted this Mochipet fans rallied and spread the word raising enough to buy him a new MacBook Pro. Now David is back on track and ready to make beats for you all again and he wanted to thank his fans personally.
THE GOOD NEWS: “I can’t thank everyone enough. I never thought I could raise the money in just less then a week. My hope was to just spread awareness to other musicians and gear being stolen from shows, and on tours. Believe it or not, after everyone takes their cut, we don’t make that much money as an underground artist. Everyone doing this is just doing for the music and when people come and steal your stuff it really puts a negative feeling to the whole purpose of music, which I feel is to uplift people. I pretty much work all week and play shows on the weekends so I have no social life, but I do it because I love music. To have the fans give back like this really solidifies my purpose, it really makes me feel good about making music again, and I am really grateful for that!” – mochi
