Latin and Beyond

Nortec Collective

I recently picked up the newest Nortec Collective disc which is over a year old now. It reminds me of seeing the exhibit of the de la Torre Brothers at the Hispanic Cultural Center some time back. Those guys are amazing artists blending new and old, fine art and folk art into a new fine art they call Meso-Americhanics. One of their pieces included the music of the Nortec Collective as part of the piece. Both the Nortec Collective and the de la Torre Brothers seem to be working from a similar artistic place evoking a comparable sensory response. This week’s Twisted Groove starts off with the blend of Latin and electronic music and moves from there.

Dream Pop


This weeks Twisted Groove was sparked by the most recent tour of Dean & Britta (of Luna fame). They have composed music for and are touring with Screen Tests films of Andy Warhol. Someone once called Luna’s music Dream Pop which I think is a fitting description. So this weeks show tries to blend other artist that might fall into the Dream Pop category. Regrettably the second set recording was stopped short by yet another computer glitch. When I can find the time I would like to recreate the second set.

Muslimgauze

I felt like mixing it up this week so this weeks Twisted Groove show is quit varied. While I was in San Francisco a while back I bought the then newest Muslimgauze release Armsbazzar. Recordings of his from 1994-1997. His sound is raw and powerful. I then moved to some smoother electronic music like M83, Plaid and DNTEL. Then I get all euro with some French feeling music like Bertrand and Alif Tree. Then I move into some experimental sounds of Nick Forte. Then into some Kriedler, KJ Sawka and then back to Muslimgauze. Ending out the eve with Aphex Twin, Mouse on Mars and Future Sound of London. Quite a varied tour around the electronic music genre.
