In the midst of a tour that will last through July and possibly longer, Th' Mole has been making a mess all over the place. Not only has his album hit #12 on the CMJ charts and his single remained #1 on XLR8R's MP3 downloads for nearly three weeks, he's managed to get a ton of other press and new fans during his travels as well as recording a crazy new collaboration album, featuring a ton of the talented folks with whom he has encountered on the road. Including Baseck and Cristinky of Sonic Death Rabbit, amongst a host of others, the album is sure to be chock full of insane talent and an eclectic array of styles. (See below, as Michigan's Myn Dwun records his crunk-ass verse about the value of hugging your friends, in Th' Mole's car!)
The busy little Mole promises to give us an in-depth recap of the tour (including the reason behind his getting turned away from the Canadian border) as soon as he has a spare minute, but for now you can follow his Twitter updates at twitter.com/thmole and see his upcoming schedule for the US and Europe at myspace.com/themole.

[ Exlusive on iTunes or Addictech ]
The latest official full length record from Mochipet "Master P on Atari"
is out today exclusively on iTunes and Addictech.
TITLE: Master P on Atari
LABEL: Daly City Records
FORMAT: Digital & Special Edition CD
RELEASE DATE: 04/21/2009
Mastered by: Bil Bless
Mochipet’s 808 Opus “Microphonepet” gained him a spot on 2kSports’ NBA2k9 Videogame along side acts such as Beastie Boys, N.E.R.D., and The Cool Kids and now he’s back with another Glitched Out Video Game Marathon. Master P on Atari is dirtier, bassier, and spaceier, with lazers set on full destruct. You’ll hear elements of Hip Hop, Dubstep, 8bit, IDM, Metal, and Chopped and Screwed but it is still all David Y. Wang, expanding on his already immense electronic musical pallet. There might be a reason why publications such as The Clash Magazine (UK), Bay Guardian, and SFWeekly has nomited him as one of the Best Electronic Act of 2008 and one to watch for in the future!
Kid Koala (Ninjatune)
“Mochipet is hilariously funky. He should score the next Katamari video game!”
Clash Magazine ( UK )
“Top Electronic Artists of 2008 - Savaged edits over schizphreaked beats sizzled Mochipet's great album into our charts…talent populated this sonic bullet.”
edIT (The Glitch Mob) "Mochi is keepin' it hyphy for the asians."
Lazersword (Briefcase Rockers) “yo man, was just listening to this mochipet track on my itunes a second ago, and was like what the fuck this is the dopest track i've ever heard. that whole album is rawwwwww”

“Mochipet is making one hell of an argument—for hip hop and even music in general….One very versatile producer…"
KEXP ( Seattle , WA ) “beats spanning the hip-hop and electronic genres, often combining the two in memorable fashion…you barely have to lift a finger to enjoy this”
Pharrell (FLUOKIDS Blog) " Mochipet ….soft and pop, slow fox trot, rubs your buttocks more gently please, I want to take my time like turning the first 25 pages of pub of my magazine of mode, mode."

New Mix With Mochipet, Mochipet, Akira Kiteshi, Ghislain Poirier, Jahcoozi, Modeselektor, Busy P, Milanese, Landstrumm, Diplo, Joker, more by NIC
THANKS TO DOKTOR KRANK!
Heavy, eclectic mix of electronic glitch hop breaks spiced up with bass heavy dubstep and a few other styles by an artist called NIC. It’s quite funny as the term “nic” in Polish means “nothing” and as it turns out I practically know nothing about this artist, apart from the fact that he/they is/are probably from Australia and definitely knows how to cook a delicious music meal. I’ve even forgot where I found this quality music. Whatever, enjoy the ride.
Mochipet, Akira Kiteshi, Ghislain Poirier, Jahcoozi, Modeselektor, Busy P, Milanese, Landstrumm, Diplo, Joker plus remixes by Two Fingers, Megasoid, Si Begg, Kraddy – what else can you expect from a good mix. Absolutely amazing selection of midtempo vibes yet very moving, uplifting and full of raw energy. Intelligent glitch break beat music!

Fulgeance – Tita Lima Esquizofrevo (Luv n Hate remix)
