Improvisational performer Bostich (real name Ramón Amezcua) uses Point Loma as an excuse for experiments with his collection of obscure analog synthesizers. He began his career in electronic music in 1988 with the release of two ambient electronic albums. He worked with Panoptica and Fussible to establish the Nortec sound, an original musical style blending the sounds of traditional instruments of Tijuana with electronic beats. The result of this collaboration was the tune "Polaris," an aggressively danceable track that fully represented the then newly created Nortec sound, which gained Bostich the nickname "The Godfather of Nortec."
Besides touring the world and providing quality dentistry, Ramon continues working on his first all-Nortec-style Bostich album, as well as recording for future Point Loma releases.
