International Festival of Digital Creativity and Electronic Music

Grammy-nominated Nortec Collective members Bostich+Fussible have been fusing the indigenous Tijuana sound and 21st-century technology for nearly a decade now, to great international acclaim.

Hailing from Tijuana in Northern Mexico, the Nortec Collective first rose to prominence with their 2001 debut, The Tijuana Sessions Vol. 1. The album was a daring mix of traditional norteño and banda sounds filtered through a techno framework and DJ aesthetic, essentially evolving "border music" for the 21st century. The collective took its name from the combination of norteño and techno music that marked their sound, and was less a traditional band than a loose-knit collaboration of like-minded artists sharing a similar aesthetic.

In 2005 Nortec released their follow-up album, Tijuana Sessions Vol 3, which was nominated for several Latin Grammy awards. Though all five members still use the Nortec banner, these days Nortec Collective has evolved into several factions. From this metamorphosis appears Tijuana Sound Machine, the debut album by members Bostich and Fussible that was nominated for a 2008 Grammy Award in the “Best Latin Rock” category!

For this year’s MUTEK, they assemble a five-piece norteño band that brings the border town to Montreal for a show that threatens to be the highlight of the entire festival!
