Mexican Institute Of Sound:
By Mandana Beigi
Mejico Maxico (CD Nacional)

From the underground music movement of Mexico City comes an audio collage of electronica, pop, cumbia, dub, and cha-cha-cha.
MIS’ lead man, Camilo Lara, is the personification of a hip, geeky guy who knows how to pick good music and mix it well. He is really not much of a performer but that doesn’t matter because the whole performer/songwriter path is not his game. He is a gifted collage artist with an incredible energy and a goofy sense of humor, which has made all the difference on this record.

Lara is not here to blend genres or play instruments. He is here to arrange snippets of different musical references and create a new sound through his one and only instrument: his beloved computer. His love of making compilations began with his annual Christmas CDs, for which he carefully selected the year’s best tracks and gave away to friends and family. And soon, under the moniker of MIS, he began collaborating and mixing songs for Placebo, Le Hammond Inferno, Gecko Turner, and Babasonicos.

Mejico Maxico is a carefully (yet random) sequenced set of all Spanish tracks converting the musical references and poetry of the past few decades into a unique, ultramodern sound. This could be the beginning of what music may come down to in the future: no more instruments, no more songwriting, and no more stage – just reproduction of past creations! Though even the thought of that possibility makes me not want to live in that time and space, here I am praising an electronic production that may not have any classical values but it is damn fun to listen to.

With fifteen tracks ranging form 45 seconds to five minutes, the album is energetic, groovy, and chaotic. Some of the favorites tunes include “OK!,” “Corasound,” and “Hey Tia!”
