Boomkat Product Review:
"6th studio album by Canadian Artist Dominic "Mocky" Salole.Mocky collaborated with artists like Jamie Lidell, Feist, Peaches & Chilly Gonzales. Performer, producer, songwriter, composer and multi-instrumentalist, Dominic "Mocky" Salole came to prominence in the Berlin electronic scene of the mid 2000s, releasing three acclaimed solo albums, co-writing and producing classics like Jamie Lidell's Multiply and Feist's The Reminder and making waves on stage with close collaborators Peaches, Feist, Chilly Gonzales and founding the rapping puppet group The Puppetmastaz. It became evident that Mocky had his own way of doing things when he did his first tour at the zoos of Europe (literally setting up and playing in the Zoo in every town that he played and doing a matinee at the monkey cage before his club date). In 2009, his music took a jazz-inflected turn to the acoustic with the release of Saskamodie, which showcased his songwriting talents while introducing his unique sensibility to a receptive new international audience." In 2011, after work in Big Sur on Feist's Metals, Mocky relocated to Los Angeles, where he quickly established himself as a co-writer with uncommon credentials, and eccentric working methods collaborating with breakthrough artists like L.A.'s rising R&B star Kelela. With his monthly rooftops gigs at the ACE Hotel, meanwhile, he has breathed new life into the L.A. live scene. Along the way Mocky has given us some clues as to the direction he is heading by releasing two digital mixtapes ("The Moxtape" Volumes 1 and 2) and now he finally releases his new album Key Change documenting his move from the musical community of Berlin-Kreuzberg to his new home in L.A.-Echo Park and reflecting the vibe of the cities emerging underground jazz and psychedelic scene. Featuring frequent Flying Lotus collaborator Miguel Atwood-Ferguson on strings and features a Feist cameo on drums and Mocky's long time collaborator Chilly Gonzales sits in on piano and rhodes on "Head In the Clouds" - the classy pop song without which every Mocky album would be incomplete. LP version includes 2 bonus tracks & download code"
