Biography

b. Robert Mendoza, Tijuana, Mexico. Citing motivation from your roosters that wake him each morning and declaring his Personal computer as his most significant tool, Mendoza discovers the shared appearance between home, techno, breakbeat, dub and traditional Mexican music. He’s closely connected with Nortec, the loose collective of Tijuana-based music artists (including Murcof, Ruisort and Loopdrop) whose electronica includes elements of well-known traditional Mexican music. This digital rethinking of traditional music is usually derived from examples of tapes offered by rings of local road music artists: fragments of hardly recognizable 12-string guitars, tubas and snares are coalesced in to the most interesting of techno. ‘I like plenty of Mexican music from folkloric to well-known, however the music that quite definitely guidelines the north of Mexico is certainly Norteno and Banda. They’re the two most widely used and regional varieties of music, and that’s everything you hear all over the place, even though you don’t wish to. Because we was raised with it, it’s possible for us to include into what we perform in digital music.’ Mendoza told DJ newspaper. ‘The small taqueria shops, the donkey decorated such as a zebra, the best pick-up vehicles, the narcos as well as the judiciales, the substantial grupero concerts, ’ shown Mendoza, in Silicon Alley Reporter newspaper, ‘All of this is why is this city therefore special therefore bizarre for outsiders. We’re recycling the environment electronically: we filtration system the rhythms with software program plug-ins, we test the tuba and develop a different type of melody from this.’ In 2002, Panoptica released The Tijuana Remixes, a assortment of reconfigured variations of Panoptica monitors. The inventory of performers remodelling Panoptica recordings notably included Fussible, of whom Mendoza acquired previously been an associate. The collection also highlighted monitors re-worked by Bostich, Hyperboreal and Panoptica himself and a new documenting ‘She’s In Fiestas’, a cooperation with previous Bauhaus bass-player David Jay.
