A WEEK IN TIJUANA: NORTE SONORO
DJ/RUPTURE, CARDOPUSHER, POIRIER, PSILOSAMPLES, SUN ARAW, VENUS X
Last year, DJ/Rupture participated in the Norte Sonoro project in Monterrey, a collaboration of international musicians taking place in northern Mexico run by the NRML crew. This year, Rupture returns with a leadership role, having chosen the artists participating—Cardopusher from Venezuela, Poirer from Canada, Psilosamples from Brazil and Sun Araw and Venus X from the US. They’ve moved over to Tijuana and six producers are working with four Mexican acts—Movimiento Alterado, Banda Sinaloense, Hyphy and Corrido Sierreño. They’ll release a free EP with the music they’ve made and on Friday all the acts perform at a free show. Rupture spoke to us about his hopes for the collaborations and photographer John Francis Peters is in Mexico this week documenting what happens.
