Video Interview: Nortec Collective

By Jaime Pitillas

Ramón Amezcua and Pepe Mogt are better known for their artistic names Bostich & Fussible. They are an important part of Nortec Collective, a group of artists that pays tribute to Mexican musical tradition by blending it using the latest electronic mediums. Their musical uniqueness mixes Norteño and Tambora fineness with old school electronic tendencies, such as those of Chicago House and Breakbeat. Bostich & Fussible are backed by numerous Latino musicians in a band that provides a great array of instruments and textures: tubas, clarinets, horns from the Tambora, accordions, bajo sexto from Norteño music and innovative electronic instruments like the Tenori-on.
