NORTEC COLLECTIVE PRESENTS: BOSTICH + FUSSIBLE

Bulevar 2000

2010-09-26

Nortec Collective is a Latin electronica ensemble of four musicians that at times records together, at times as individuals, at times as duos. Bostich and Fussible are the two members responsible for this set, and they deliver a kind of "El Mundo Musicale" supercharged with technology. These are primarily instrumentals with a phrase or line repeated occasionally throughout the number, with the exceptions being the two English-lyric songs "I Count the Ways,""Bulevar 2000" and "Centinela" (the latter a story about doomed lovers). The style has been accurately called a "collision between the style and culture of electronica and traditional Mexican music." It is an interesting and entertaining blend. 09/10 MJVD W-Latin (Electronic)
