The grip of techno music reached Mexico a long time ago. For over a decade now, there have been several individuals producing in their own styles, bringing their unique references to the genre. Antena Records is a new home for these individuals, an outlet for the work of a talented generation of artists who have come together behind a guiding concept: 3rd World Techno_Logic, a unique stance on techno from a common perspective.
There is something surreal about a country where a dirt-floor shack can have a satellite dish on the roof; or city electricity lines are tapped to set up a taco stand in the middle of a street, TV set and all. Creativity always rules over limitations in Mexico, and this is something that is palpable in the music of Antena Records. Its artists have their roots in the underground Mexican electronica scene. Living in a surreal context where everything is adapted to suit the local idiosyncrasies, their take on techno is unique. Although each project has a distinct identity, the overall sound is inorganic, experimental and suited for the dance floor. The creative bond between them is a search for a sound that is globally accessible but inspired by their own surroundings.
