One of my favorite producers and live performers MiM0SA drops his first official album Sanctuary tomorrow on the new label False Idol Musik. From dubbed-out gut rumblers to twitchy dance numbers with faster tempos and the sexy, silky West Coast dubstep that MiM0SA is known for, this album does not disappoint.

Mochipet drops a new album CHICXULUB next Tuesday August 16 on STS9’s 1320 Records, a melody-driven romp through a dinosaur dreamworld whose fun energy will be welcomed on dance floors all over – and good thing, because Mochipet sets off on a tour throughout the US in September, beginning with the Burn.
XLR8R has posted the first single off the album for free download, “Yoshi’s Dinosaur Egg Hunt,” calling it “an energetic slice of epic beat work that matches videogame-style arpeggiators (check the title) along with an over-powering breakbeat and a healthy dose of low-end rumble.”
Mochipet Tour Dates:
09/01 – 09/04 Black Rock City NV@ Burning Man
09/08 THU – Asheville NC @ The One Stop
09/09 FRI – Atlanta GA @ Apache Café
09/10 SAT – Charleston SC @ Charleston Pour House
09/14 WED – Durango CO @ Abbey Theatre
