About

IGNITE @ THE ford!

Radio/TV host and journalist Nic Harcourt has curated an evening of Mexican electronica, starring the legendary electronic/funk/rock band Kinky, performing music off of their latest album, Nada Vale Más Que Tú. The album, their first new material since 2012, marks a return “to the electronic roots that has characterized the group and solidified them as one of the most important bands in Latin America,” says Billboard Magazine. Mexico City-based DJ Mexican Institute of Sound will open with a set of vintage Mexican pop and dance records from the ‘20s through the ‘60s mixed with modern loops and beats.

Kinky has performed all over the world including Coachella, KCRW’s World Festival, Bumbershoot, Austin City Limits, and six times at the prestigious Festival Vive Latino, among others. They have also appeared on David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel, Craig Ferguson and the MTV VMAs, and have toured with The Flaming Lips, Cake, Modest Mouse, De La Soul, Shakira, Los Lonely Boys, Beck, Norah Jones and Vasco Rossi. Mexican Institute of Sound is an electronic music project created by DJ and producer Camilo Lara, who in addition to releasing five albums, has worked with Morrissey tribute act Mexrissey, has remixed Beck (Wow), and has worked on the music for Pixar’s Coco, among other projects.
