Charlie Cooper, one-half of Telefon Tel Aviv, has passed away at the age 31, it's been reported.
The cause of his death is still unknown, but bandmate and friend Joshua Eustis left the following message on the band's MySpace page.
"It breaks my heart to inform you all that Charlie Cooper, my better half in Telefon Tel Aviv, passed away on January 22.
We have been friends since high school, and began making records together a decade ago. We have been so fortunate to tour the world together, while at the same time having a massive amount of laughs at one another's expense.
Aside from Charlie's singular genius and musical gifts, I can tell you that he was a total sweetheart of a guy, and a loving friend and confidant to people everywhere. His musicianship was surpassed only by his greater gift to the world—his warmth, his generosity, his unquenchable humor, and his undying loyalty to those he loved. In the spirit of honorable mention, however, I should mention that he had a shoe collection that was marvelous, knowledge of hip-hop that was profound, and knowledge of wine that was subtle.
He is survived by a sister, a neice, a nephew, his mother, his stepfather, me, and more adoring friends than the Universe has dark matter. As such, his family and I ask for your discretion and consideration of our privacy during these extremely turbulent waters."
More details as to the cause of his death will follow in the coming days.
Update: According to a CBS Chicago article, Cooper went missing last Wednesday night, after an argument with his girlfriend, and was found Monday in the Near Northwest Side neighborhood in Chicago. An autopsy is scheduled for today to determine the cause of his death.

There’s no doubt that Daly City Records head honcho and costumed maestro of pulsating soundscapes, Mochipet, had quite the prolific year in 2008, but from the sounds of this track (off his awesomely titled, impending release Master P On Atari), we're already looking forward to what's in store for us in 2009.Featuring Mochipet’s signature whomp of throbbing low-end and synthy clatter, this sizzling cut pits diced-up morsels of Atari bleep-age and choppy, 606 percussion against a mammoth-sized wall of grimy, electro goodness. With roof-blasting caliber written all over it, we feel sorry for whatever warehouse crosses paths with this track next

For this episode, he presents a sampling of some of the new material he's been using to destroy sound systems and convert nonbelievers. It's a massive thing, spastic but tightly controlled, somewhere between dubstep, glitch hop, ghettotech, and syrup-fueled Southern hip hop. And this shit absolutely lays waste to a dancefloor.
You can catch him along with Montreal's Turbocrunk (Megasoid, Lunice, & Hovatron), Robot Koch from Jahcoozi, Bass Science, and Lazer Sword on January 15 at his new monthly: Bass Camp @ 111 Minna. We're pretty sure this is going to be one of the freshest monthlies of 2009, and expect to see you there, wishing Mochi a happy birthday.
His latest release, Microphonepet, is available from Daly City Records, Amazon, iTunes, etc and features such MC's as Casual (Heiroglyphics), Raashan (Crown City Rockers), Mykah9 (Freestyle Fellowship), and Bicasso (Living Legends).
