The Mexican electronic scene is really starting to grow into its own; but even though you can find out plenty about the Nortec Collective, Google names like Los Maestros Del Jet Set or Aquadelfin and you‘d better know how to read Spanish. Luckily, as most of their songs are instrumentals, culture needs no words. This disc gives you an aperitivo taste of the scene, ranging from the operatic Decada 2 (an act that borrows more from Klaus Nomi and Italo electro than Tijuana brass) to Ford Proco (almost as graceful as Pepito) to Jackson (who kicks it like Squarepusher).
