Ford Proco was formed in 1986 in Tijuana and is considered a pioneering act of advanced electronic music in Mexico. For more than three decades they have been developing a very
particular vision of composition called “Autoconst", derived from different styles (minimalism, industrial, noise, etc.) and tools (tapes, synths, samplers, computers). Robert Proco (sampler & synthesizers) and Wito Lavolt (bass, keyboards & drums) have a long career together and with other projects and collectives. Their musical journey has gone through the fields of noise, minimal, cassette culture, avant-garde movements, sci-fi literature and tech-noise. With a strong aesthetic, this duo has moved through the limits of hardcore techno, industrial music, sonic experimentalism, always mutating and embracing new influx to their collage music combining such diverse and disparate influences as Cabaret Voltaire, Coil, Joy Division or Meat Beat Manifesto. Always interested in being a spearhead, they also incorporated elements of trip hop, ambient, noise, break-beat, film music, processing everything by samplers to get their unique sound. They have worked on several collaborations including a groovy participation with Peter Christopherson and John Balance (of the mythical Coil), Servando Carballar (Aviador Dro), Nacho Canut (Fangoria) and others. In the early years Ford Proco released a couple of self-produced cassettes highly influenced by cut-up, noise and post-industrial repetition, receiving good reviews on the local media but also in Spain. In 1993 released their first album "Fragmentos de…” (Opción Sónica – same label that first released HOCICO), which brought together corrosive material from the first era with some approaches to new dance music. This album pushed them to play in several cities, to be included on various compilations and reviewed in numerous fanzines. A second album "Vertigo de Lodo y Miel" was published in 2000 (re-released by Infinite Fog in 2015) followed by "Diagrama Percutor" (2009) and recently "Expansión Naranja" (Mannequin, 2015) including their collaboration with Coil.

All original tracks mixed and remastered from the original tapes together with some unreleased songs, alternative cuts and demos from the same sessions. There is also included a sticker and bonus CD with a selection of tracks from the first demo tapes.
