Audio Mocha (he/him)
Audio Mocha is the Surf Rock Fusion project led by electric guitarist Daniel Florez with the goal of making the best surf rock and surf-adjacent tunes to groove to. Taking inspiration from other contemporary surf rock bands like Daikaiju, Amphibian Man, King Ghidora, Man…Or Astro Man?, Andrew Moniz, Par Avion, as well as classic surf rock names like Dick Dale And His Del-Tones, The Ventures and The Trashmen, Audio Mocha is here to fuse various genres like 60s British Mod Rock to the sounds of the Caribbean and Latin America with a Fender spring reverb-drenched surf guitar twist. Mostly drawn to creating surf arrangement from Nintendo games, especially The Legend of Zelda, Audio Mocha also has a variety of covers from a variety of games like Final Fantasy, House of the Dead: Overkill, and Neo: The World Ends With You. Audio Mocha has also collaborated with many other artists and contributed to various video game remix albums on Pixel Mixers, OverClocked Remix, GameGrooves, and is an active participant in Dwelling of Duels.
