Born in Taiwan R.O.C., to a rocket scientist father and kindergarten teacher mother, Mochipet (a.k.a. David Y. Wang) has cultivated his career on building a diverse musical background. Starting out in Jazz and Metal bands from Jr. high school, he now works with influential underground artists such as: Legendary Skateboarder Ray Barbee, Backpack Rapper Casual (Hieroglyphics), Ellen Allien (Berlin’s Techno Queen), Mikah9 (Freestyle Fellowship), and Spank Rock (BigDada).
Mochipet has released music around the world on labels specializing in Experimental, Techno, Hip-Hop, and Breakcore. His latest release ‘Microphonepet,’ on Daly City Records, features artists such as, Eriksolo (Sneakymoves), Bicasso (Living Legends), Jahcoozi (Kitty-Yo), Raashan Ahmad (Crown City Rocks), Dopestyle (Kutmaster Kurt & Kool Keith), and 215 Freshest Kids.
Versatility is Mochipet’s greatest strength and this may be why his music has caught the ears of so many different communities. His music has been featured on Fuel and DirecTV with skate legends such as: Tony Hawk, Lance Mountain, Christian Hasoi, and Jason ‘Weeman’ Acuna from MTV’s Jackass. His Greek opus ‘Dessert Search for Techno Baklava’ has been performed by a 20 piece experimental orchestra (Alarm Will Sound) at New York’s Carnegie Hall. The only thing we know for sure about Mochipet is that, we will never know what he will come up with next.
