Nortec Collective: Hiperboreal


Nortec Collective: Hiperboreal
Nortec Collective: Hiperboreal is a music project that is part of the most important electronic music ensemble in Latin America, the Nortec Collective. Based in Tijuana, pg beas & vg pichardo make up Hiperboreal and combine electronic music with musical elements from the northern region of Mexico. In 1999, two of Hiperboreal’s tracks, “Loop Eterno” and “Kinklé Futurista,” were featured on the “Nortec Sampler,” the first Nortec Collective release. Nortec’s 2001 release, "Tijuana Session, Volume 1," on the Palm Pictures label, and their follow-up, “Tijuana Sessions, Vol. 3,” on Nacional Records, boosted the Collective’s reputation worldwide with the latter nominated for two Latin Grammy awards. In 2008, the Collective entered a break giving rise to projects such as Hiperboreal.
