All Aboard the Nortec Express

Tijuana's Grammy-nominated duo drop an ultra-cool music video for "Camino Verde"

Nacional Records

Last call for the Nortec Metro Subway heading to Motel Baja on Camino Verde! Bostich + Fussible are your conductors. All aboard to "Camino Verde"!

The surreal odyssey that is "Camino Verde" transports you to Tijuana -- re-imagined a la Bostich + Fussible. Directed by Gregory Allen, the music video made its world premiere on Speakeasy, a "Wall Street Journal" blog. The first scene opens up in the breezy Playas de Tijuana. All you hear are calming splashing sounds, and you soon see the backs of two men, who are unmistakably Bostich + Fussible. The song starts with a playful xylophone with, guitar, flute and robotic male vocals. Life's a beach with Pepe Mogt and Ramon Amezcua.

"'Camino Verde' was inspired by a fictional underground subway in Tijuana in the near future," explains Fussible. "The song is about someone who is lost in Tijuana and traveling on the metro, trying to find a motel to spend the night."

It's hard to believe that the Grammy-nominated artists and founders of the nortec musical genre have recorded their last album together. As SoundDiego reported in 2014, "Motel Baja" is the third and final installment of their widely respected "Border Trilogy" albums, which include the Grammy-nominated "Tijuana Sound Machine" and "Bulevar 2000." "Motel Baja" is a must-have for EDM connoisseurs wordwide, featuring collaborations with the Tom Tom Club, Atom of Senor Coconut and Wolfgang Flur of Kraftwerk.

There's still a chance for die-hard nortec fans to still see the duo -- Mogt announced on Twitter they will be performing at the 2015 Coachella in April! Get tickets here.
