‘Motel Bajaâ€™ — the highly anticipated final album from Nortec Collective Presents Bostich+Fussible â€“ debuted #1 on the iTunes charts solely based on digital pre-sales, a week before the CD and vinyl hits stores on the albumâ€™s September 16th release date, which is also Mexican Independence Day.
Grammy and Latin GrammyÂ nominated electronic music pioneers that have performed atÂ Coachella, BonnarooÂ and toured around the world over the last 15 years, Nortec Collective Presents Bostich+Fussible have announced that â€˜Motel Bajaâ€™ will be the final Nortec album.
Rolling Stone recently premiered the title track from â€˜Motel Bajaâ€™ which features a special guest appearance from Tom Tom Club (Chris Frantz and Tina Weymouth of Talking Heads). The album also features collaborations with Atom (SeÃ±or Coconut), Wolfgang Flur (Kraftwerk), Kylee Swenson (Loquat) and composer Alberto NuÃ±ez Palacio.
The albumâ€™s first single â€œCamino Verdeâ€ previously premiered at Billboard. Additional preview coverage has already come from DJ Mag, The Onionâ€™s AV/Club and Vibe.Â Bostich+Fussible will appear on NPRâ€™s All Things Considered next week to discuss the new album.
â€˜Motel Bajaâ€™ is the follow-up toÂ â€˜Tijuana Sound Machineâ€™Â andÂ â€˜Bulevar 2000,â€™Â which were both nominated for Grammyâ€™s and Latin Grammyâ€™s.
In the late 90s, Nortec Collective emerged from a burgeoning electronic scene in Tijuana, and invented a new style of music they called Nortec – a fusion of NorteÃ±o (“from theÂ North”) and Techno.
Documenting the collision between electronic musicÂ characterized by heavy dance beatsÂ and traditional formsÂ of Mexican music performed with live instrumentation, Nortec Collective paved the way for a new generation of producers and DJs that have reinvented electronic music from a global perspective.
Bostich (RamÃ³n Amezcua) and Fussible (Pepe Mogt) are two of the original co-founders of Nortec Collective, and have continued to push the envelope with an explosive live show that has toured extensively across the globe.
Nortec Collective Presents:Â Bostich+Fussible will perform at the inauguralÂ Supersonico FestivalÂ in Los Angeles on October 11th with Calle 13, CafÃ© Tacvba and more.
