Mochipet

Real Name:
David Y. Wang
Profile:
Born in Taiwan to a rocket scientist father and kindergarten teacher mother, David Wang (a.k.a. Mochipet) has been tinkering with electronics since he was a child. However, not until he added music to the equation, did something special begin to take shape. Having grown up listening to metal guitar, avant-garde jazz, and mainstream hip-hop, David's eclectic taste can now be seen in his music, ever changing, and always evolving.

Never wasting an ounce of drive, David started his own label in 1990, Btrendy Records, which later paved the way for Daly City Records, that served as the first platform to put out his and his friends early experimental-jazz-funk-metal influenced recordings in very limited quantities under different project and band names, some of which dates back to his high school days.

Initially mailing his first solo album (a self-titled affair) on CD-R to anyone who wanted it, Mochipet gained popularity to the point where he had to ask for shipping costs to be covered. His second CD, "Randbient Works 2002", was also sent out on CD-R, but this time for a small cost. By the time his third CD came out, he had gained the reputation to move up to a larger label. "Combat" was released on the Tigerbeat6 phantom label, Violent Turd, featuring intense mash-ups.

The clean and unique vibrations David has presented to the music arena have reached as far as the sports and skateboarding world as well. His song "Sharp Drest" (featuring Eric Solo and oonceoonce) is featured throughout the top-selling basketball videogame - NBA2K9, alongside artists such as Beastie Boys, N.E.R.D., and The Cool Kids. You may have also heard his musical contributions on FuelTV and DIRECTV, providing hand-selected soundtracks to skate legends such as Anthony Van Engelen, Christian Hasoi, Jason "Weeman" Acuna, Laban Pheidias, Lance Mountain, Ray Barbee, and Tony Hawk.

His efforts have been recognized throughout the music community by way of nominations for titles including "Best Electronic Act of 2008" from publications such as Clash Magazine (UK) and San Francisco Bay Guardian. His composition "Dessert Search for Techno Baklava" has been performed by a 20 piece orchestra - Alarm Will Sound, around the world, most notably at New York's Carnegie Hall and Amsterdam's Holland Festival.
