Ever sing within the bathe? Play air guitar? Properly, when Ramón Amezcua was a child again within the 70s, he would play air synthesizer.
“I keep in mind taking part in Kraftwerk once I was having a shower,” Amezcua says. “I think about myself shifting these knobs and faders.”
Amezcua, higher often called Bostich of Nortec Collective, is legendary for mixing the traditional norteña sounds of Tijuana with digital music. Born and raised in Tijuana, Amezcua frequented document shops on either side of the border within the early 80s. By the late 90s, he was on the forefront of the digital music scene in Mexico.
However making music and touring the world wasn’t all the time the plan. Amezcua truly educated as a dentist and thought he would try this ceaselessly.
From KPBS and PRX, “Port of Entry” tells cross-border tales that join us. In our recurring “Moved by Music” collection, we travel back in time to get just a little taster of the early digital music that set younger Amezcua’s creativeness on hearth. We discover a number of the futuristic synths and drum machines again within the 70s, the synth pop he was digging for at document shops within the 80s and the artists that impressed him within the 90s when he was taking part in raves throughout Mexico.
These are cross-border tales that join us. Border individuals usually inhabit this in-between place. From KPBS and PRX, “Port of Entry” tells private tales from this place — tales of affection, hope, wrestle and survival from border crossers, fronterizxs and different individuals whose lives are formed by the wall.
