MCZulu & Mochipet – This Friday 3/9 @ICON Ultra Lounge SF

Click Here for article

Performing in a purple dinosaur suit isn’t Mochipet’s only claim to fame — he also occasionally spins real vinyl, collaborates with local jazz ensembles (like The Evan Francis Group, formerly Spaceheater), and creates mashups from bands that are more similar in moniker than they are in tone (e.g., Cash Money Millionaires and Johnny Cash). Also, he knows his music history: The turntablist formerly known as David Wang used to have his own three-hour show on San Mateo’s KCSM, one in a small handful of extant non-commercial jazz stations. Such disparate influences are unusual for a DJ, even in the progressive Bay Area, and it’s no wonder that Mochipet is such a rousing success. Perhaps the biggest testament to his stature as an artist was a 2008 concert at Carnegie Hall, during which a twenty-piece orchestra played Stefan Freund’s arrangement of the Mochipet piece, “Dessert Search for Techno Baklava.” This week Mochipet will unveil a new album, Mochipet Is Evil, which he produced in collaboration with dancehall vocalist MC Zulu. They’ll celebrate with a cast of several other DJs on Friday, Mar. 9, at ICON Ultra Lounge (1192 Folsom St., San Francisco). 9 p.m., $10.

MCZULU + MOCHIPET Album Release Party plus VERY special guests!

Friday, March 9, 2012 | 9:00pm until 4:00am


Legendary MC Zulu will be joining SF’s very own bass droppin’ master, Mochipet for one RAGER of a party on Friday March 9th to celebrate the release of their upcoming album, “Mochipet is Evil” coming out on Daly City Records!

**MOCHIPET** (Daly City)
Born in Taiwan to a rocket scientist father and kindergarten teacher mother, David Y Wang aka Mochipet’s music has traveled the globe from Europe to Asia and everything in between. With many overseas and US tours his music has been featured in Videos Games with the Beastie Boys as well as performed by a 20-piece orchestra at New York’s Carnegie Hall. David sees no boundaries in music, which is why he has worked with everyone from Professional Skateboarder Ray Barbee, to Techno Queen Ellen Allien, Jazz drummer Weasel Walter, of The Flying Luttenbachers, and Mashup DJ Z-Trip. Recently you may have heard his songs dropped by DJs such as Bassnectar. He just finished a tour with Sound Tribe Sector 9 and is currently in the studio working on his new release “Rawr Means I Love You” Due out in 2012!

**MC ZULU** (Chicago)
MC ZULU does not make reggae in the traditional sense. His unique blend of electro bass grooves and Caribbean style dancehall vocals creates a new form of dancehall reggae from the outer reaches of space. -URB Magazine

Kush Arora has been sculpting sound in San Francisco and beyond for the past decade. He has branded his own signature imprint on bass driven music. All shades of Dub, Garage,Dancehall,and Indo-Caribbean influences merge into the unique genre known worldwide as Dread Bass. Intelligent yet driving, cultural and simultaneously resistant, the tunes walk the balance between the club and the studio, keeping motion in mind.With these futuristic stylings, Kush wears many hats all rooted in Dub and Electronica. These influences can be heard throughout his diverse,10-record discography.

Former Detroiter, now residing in San Francisco.This girl def knows her Dub and will definitely keep your feet moving and your head bobbin. If you missed her before, this is your chance to see this girl move the crowd. The Bay Area is toying with disaster by laying on a huge fault line with talent such as SKULLTRANE producing her jawdropping dubstep with MalLabel Music and her own label Cutty Dubs. Come plunge in to the bass of this talented female who is on fire right now! You’ll be able to say you saw her before she becomes a household name as one of best dubstep female producers, which will be in the very near future.

**DJ SEP**
DJ Sep is the founder, promoter, and main resident dj at Dub Mission, one of the longest running dub & reggae parties in the U.S., possibly the world. A weekly Sunday night party based in San Francisco, Dub Mission presents cutting-edge dub, roots reggae, dancehall, and dubstep, and will celebrate its 15th anniversary in 2011. Dub Mission has featured artists from all over the world, including The Scientist, Mad Professor, Adrian Sherwood, and Twilight Circus Dub Sound System to name a few. In 1999, Dub Mission won a Bay Guardian Goldie award in the music category. DJ Sep has also been nominated for an SF Weekly Music Award in the best DJ category, and has spun at venues and clubs in London, New York, Washington DC, Los Angeles, Miami, San Diego, and throughout the Bay Area.

This man is a sorcerer of sorts, and his sets fall nowhere short of shocking. A powerful and energetic force on the decks, El Diablo is responsible for the music behind MalLabel’s theme song ‘Rollin With My Crew,’ and is known to flip it to psyphy when the BPM is getting too high, but the crowd’s high is just right. Our own devil with the following details: party rocking crazy pants. El Diablo cut his teeth in the electronic world with San Francisco’s acclaimed Dhamaal Soundsystem. The crew’s Worldly drum n bass sound garnered international attention with their 2004 self-titled debut album, and while the album sold several thousand copies in the US and abroad, the singles, EPs and remixes earned consistent airplay and licensing for various features. His first Release for Mallabel, “Rollin With My Crew” in November 2009, was a top 10 Bestseller on Juno download for over 5 weeks, topping at number 5 and prompting the first Dubstep Music Video release for the title track. He continues to be one of MalLabel Music’s best selling and most popular artists. His latest Album, “Devil in the Machine”, released Oct 24th 2011 on MalLabel, features a collaboration with legendary DnB dj, UFO! and remixes by Megalodon and Liquid Stranger and renews his success, reaching #41 on the Beatport Dubstep Charts.

Dazzling audiences with stunning word play and funky rhythms unheard in hip-hop and dance music, Joe Mousepad, who hails from New Hampshire, has earned a place as a prominent emcee in the international music community. Relocating to Boston in 2002 and eventually to San Francisco in 2007, his interactions with the hip hop and bass music scenes have pushed him in style and form, utilizing his abilities to play on any tempo and genre. You may have seen him at such music events as, Low End Theory, South by Southwest, and countless festivals along the west coast. Joe is no stranger to the decks as well, and has begun taking over beats AND the microphone, launching into what will soon be a beyond epic year creatively for Mr. Mousepad.

Sifting through the ashes of a post-apocalyptic city, searching the remains of clubs and theaters, one of the lone survivors, Alpaca, braves the new world optimistically with a Jedi Blaster, collecting the necessary pieces to begin a new civilization. Brushing broken glass from subwoofers & loading a stolen DeLorean, elements of a new bass utopia are assembled at the foot of Dolores Park. Having spent the previous decade as a pioneering land un-developer, replacing mega-housing with green space, the solitude of the newly abandoned planet was welcome. But a community had to be assembled to attempt any kind of party, or you know, to reproduce. Forging a crude wall of sound, Alpaca broadcasts a bass beacon developed in the early 2000’s, specifically tuned to attract heads & repel mindless bros responsible for the planet’s destruction. Patiently waiting for signs of life, he drops jams for the world to find – it’s all he knows to do.

Hellefante top dog, beauty, boss, and producer, WolfBitch is on the prowl. Her infectious blend of futuristic bass, house, dubstep, and tastemaker electronica sets her apart from her contemporaries in the San Francisco scene. Recently playing high profile gigs has seen Wolfbitch hungrier than ever- this set will not be one to miss.

As a child working in South Africa’s Witwatersrand uranium mines, VNDMG never dreamed of being the worldwide sensation he has yet to become. The harrowing effects of years of radiation poisoning are still evident, but his indomitable spirit has kept him upbeat in the face of ongoing adversity.
Though chock-full of intrigue, the tale of VNDMG’s journey to California is long forgotten. His history picks up as 2004 saw him working for slave wages in the Tenderloin spinning Bubblegum House in a dark basement club. One fateful day, a drunk patron spilled his drink and shorted the mixer. In the ensuing silence,VNDMG heard a strange and wonderful sound coming through the basement window – a sound he would later recognize as Glitch Hop. When the good people at Daly City Records found VNDMG, he was malnourished and confused, but his head was swirling with basslines and distorted synths. Within months he was rocking dance floors from the Bay Area to the Black Rock Desert where he has shared the stage with the likes of Kraddy, AK1200, Mochipet, Noah D, Ill-Esha, & Freq Nasty, amongst others.

**Party will be filmed for upcoming Mochipet & MC Zulu video**

We will also be celebrating Kaitlyn Noelle Starbuck turning 32… and for all those that have attended one of Ms. Starbuck’s previous Bday Bashes… you KNOW what is in store, so get ready!!!

*And because she adores costume parties and of course a good hot mess, we’ve decided to pair the 2 together…

Theme is any celeb; dead or alive…. so pick your fave Hollywood starlet, worst rich annoying heiress or biggest hair 80’s band member… it’s time to party like Rockstars B*itches! 🙂

The notorious Bay Area crew behind MOCHIPET’S infamous underground PETNATION parties are Back from the Dead and at it again.. and this time, we’re taking you with us San Francisco!

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. With his fierce, penetrating beats and filthy basslines, it’s no wonder MARK INSTINCT has everyone craving more on the dancefloor… from Australia all the way to the US. Get ready Bay Area, it’s about to get deliciously GRIMEY!
(Rottun Recordings,Subhuman Recordings|Canada)


You’ve heard his tracks played out at every party, now it’s time to see him live! 1st time in SF!

We’ll have you dancing til you die in the Dead Pet Cemetery
and bring you back to life again by dawn.

With our Spooky Residents:
Slayers Club
Free Crush (Konekta/DEVi)
Supplying Demand

Stroll through the dark alleys of the Dia de los Muertos Art Installation and Gallery, as we honor and show respect to the animals of our past and present, extinct or endangered. Bring a token or photo of your fave furry creature for the Dia de Los Muertos altar for loved PETS.

Take a little peak into our Other World, if you dare:

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.”
