Terrestre Secondary Inspection
- Words: Brock Phillips
- Label: Static Discos
A former member of Mexico's Nortec Collective, Fernando Corona's music is markedly moodier than that of his Tijuana-bred counterparts. Corona typically records as Murcof, but this album marks his solo debut under the Terrestre tag. The strident horn riffs and jubilant bounce typical of the Nortec sound have been replaced by a darker fusion of skeletal techno structures, minimal dub aesthetics and a barely noticeable tinge of Tejano and other Latin music. Corona's sense of dramatic tension is his strongest point though, therefore it comes as no surprise the producers of Amores Perros recently asked him to soundtrack their newest film, Nicotina.
