New MOCHIPET Album “Chicxulub” – Free MP3 on XLR8R

Posted in Album News & Reviews, Events, Music News with tags , , , on August 8, 2011 by worldromper

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.”

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

Festival king Bassnectar has a new album dropping next week August 2 called Divergent Spectrum, a balls-out, banger-filled album heat, frenzy and the big live energy that the artist is known for.
