Nortec (from the combination of "norteņo" and "techno") is an electronic musical genre from Tijuana, a city in the north of Mexico that first gained popularity in the late 1990s. Nortec music is characterized by hard dance beats and samples from traditional forms of Mexican music such as Banda sinaloense and Norteņo - unmistakably Mexican horns are often used.

Situated near the United States border, and the US cities of Los Angeles and San Diego, Tijuana's musical scene is heavily influenced by tourism, and in particular, an international night life, a co-operative local musical community, and a steady supply of visiting DJ's from the US. Many Mexicans from Mexico City frequently shuttle between Tijuana and Ibiza, Spain (a world renowned party club location), further exchanging and enriching the music.

As a result, Tijuana has around 40 nightclubs that play music that, by normally conservative club standards, is contemporary and even avant-garde. The DJ's of these clubs have unique non-competitive associations and share music. The result is a wide variety of dance beats in the clubs.
