Home / Biography / Loopdrop


Unusually, Loopdrop’s self-titled 2001 debut recording featured digital paeans to oranges (‘Naranja (Otra Mezcla)’) and tricycles (‘Triciclo’) aswell as fairly electro pop elegies that translated as ‘If ALL OF THE Stars Had been Extinguished’ (‘Si Todas Todas las Estrellas Se Apagaran’). Loopdrop may be the alter ego of Tijuana, Mexico-based multi-instrumentalist Rene Soberanis (b. Mexico). Nevertheless, Soberanis appears to reject the explicitly Mexican music from the Nortec Collective (Panoptica, Ruisort, Fussible), which intentionally incorporates the original musics of their distributed city: ‘I’m totally in addition to the Nortec Collective. I believe the music that Loopdrop creates can audio as though it’s from anywhere’, explains the musician. The just overt signifier of Soberanis’ house nation on his debut recording was the monitor titles, that have been detailed in Spanish. Rather, the lurid sleeve of Loopdrop’s debut masked an private and rootless music that transported track echoes of German electronica and US space rock and roll.
