Boomkat Product Review:
Mochipet's Daly City imprint presents the debut album by Californian laptop loon Preshish Moments, who takes great glee in carving his way through several hard drives worth of samples and comedy soundclips in the making of this eighteen track DSP odyssey. In addition to the by now quite familiar blend of dubious sounding spoken word snippets (within a matter of seconds the album serves up a not terribly subtly encoded reference to child abuse) Let's Be Friends does a particularly good job of scrambling beats and coming up with a more interesting audio melange than your average breakcore mash up. You can certainly hear the affinity with Mochipet, and there are shades of Jason Forrest and Knifehandchop creeping into the album throughout. Key to the success of the album, Preshish Moments is more than just another sound mangling prankster, he actually comes across as a solid producer in general, finely editing his sound sources and bending the beats into unrecognisable shapes far from the dreary sample bank sieving that can so often neuter this kind of material.
