Within the realms of art, film, music, and architecture, a burgeoning new class of creatives is reshaping Mexico City in ways that are unmatched in other world capitals. In the midst of this remarkable zeitgeist, a collective of creatives have formed a unique collective. De_st_rec is far more than a record label, maker of vines, or event production company. Combining a sustainable sensibility, a sharp wit, and a plurality of tone and voice, De_st_rec is constructing a new plurinationalist history of North America, embracing globalism while giving the finger to the played-out monolith to the north. De_st_rec is a reality in search of form and organization.
