Introducing: Mochi Beats (and free mashup album)

Ooooh wee, I have a hit from an enigmatic mixer and masher who comes to the rescue on an otherwise quiet and dull morning in rainy ol' Beastonia today. Mochi Beats, a lad from Cali, tossed us a note earlier with quite a bit of the rad to turn our gray demeanor into a mashed up mini dance party...co-workers, beware.



Much like the revered Girl Talk, our homeboy from Pittsburgh (big-ups son!), MB weaves his magic by stirring up over 100 well-known tunes into a 24-track offering, fittingly dubbed Mochi Beats (the album). Now, normally we tend to stray from all that is "top-40" but if we can consume a ton of those tracks, mixed with some of our underground and indie faves, in a tidy and concise fashion, then let his tunes be the path we take to aural pleasuredoms.


Give a peek at his extensive track list below, download the entire album all zipped up tightly here, then jump after for a few of my faves, including the last which is not on the album.
