Panoptica Orchestra is a live band created by producer Roberto A. Mendoza aka Panoptica. Roberto started in the Mexican electronic scene since the late 80’s by founding Mexico's benchmark bands like Artefakto (Opcion Sonica / Zoth Ommog), and in the late 90’s the acclaimed Nortec Collective (where Northern Mexican folk meets with electronica). But his solo story began in the year 2000 when he signed a deal as Panoptica with the London label Certificate 18(domino records) releasing a series of 10’ and albums, meanwhile with Nortec he released Tijuana Session Vol. 1 on Palm Pictures and Tijuana Sessions Vol.3 on Nacional records. By the end of 2007 Roberto decided to record a new solo album to push and further develop the Tijuana sound as Panoptica Orchestra. As a dj-producer he's been releasing tracks for the greek label Erase records.
