Following on from Fussible’s highly-acclaimed ‘Odyssea’ Maxi CD single & associated vinyl release in 2002, Sonic360 continues on the tech-mex ‘Nortec’ trip with ‘No-One Over 21’ – including seven tasty remixes providing an eclectic journey from Tijuana to beyond...
Inspired by the mass movement of under-age American kids who regularly cross the border to Tijuana, Mexico, for a night of excess, Fussible wrote the exploratory 'No One Over 21'. From distinctive ambient chords through to hefty Tijuana rhythm, the track evokes the excitement, nervous energy and rebellion at the notorious
crossing point. ‘No-one Over 21’ begins with ominous and empty echoes and horns, lifted by hypnotic tech-house beats rolling under Fussible’s characteristic Norteo-induced snares and Latin percussion. This is the sound of Nortec with some serious funk thrown in for good measure.
FUSSIBLE is Pepe Mogt from Tijuana in the Northwest of Mexico. His musical background stems from traditional Mexican rhythm and electronic industrialism with diverse influences from Classical, Funk and Deep House.
