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.”

STS9 “Peaceblaster” Remix Album to Benefit New Orleans Make It Right Foundation

Posted in Music News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 31, 2009 by worldromper

I cannot wait to spend my money on this music.

theneworleansmakeitrightSTS9 and 1320 Records drop remix album Peaceblaster on June 23rd and 100% of the proceeds will go to the Make It Right Foundation of New Orleans, an organization dedicated to rebuilding the city and helping reestablish the lives of so many people whose worlds were devastated by Hurricane Katrina.

I am from the dirty South; I grew up drinking purple and have spent many beautiful days and more than a few crazy nights in the rich, colorful, delicious city of New Orleans. It is a place thick with layers of a storied past and a city like no other place on earth. 

Make It Right is Brad Pitt’s lovechild (one of ’em) and the foundation is working with the residents of the ravaged 9th Ward to rebuild the neighborhood in a sustainable fashion while retaining all of the character and soul that makes New Orleans so special.

Besides helping people who really need it, JUST CHECK OUT this ridiculous list of just some of the 30 artists who remix STS9 songs on Peaceblaster:

  • Lazer Sword
  • Glitch Mob
  • Eskmo
  • Bluetech
  • Alex B
  • Ott
  • Nosaj Thing
  • Welder
  • Deru
  • Pretty Lights
  • Eliot Lipp
  • Daedelus
  • Bass Science

See the rest of the artists and the track list here; the album drops June 23 and will be available on iTunes or at 1320 Records. Buy that shit.
