Last November, Converse took its wildly-popular Converse Rubber Tracks experience across the border for its first-ever pop-up appearance in Mexico City. Evolving from a 5,200 square-foot recording studio in Brooklyn, NY to an all-encompassing, international music program, Converse Rubber Tracks has given local artists from around the globe the opportunity to unleash their musical creativity through free recording sessions at state-of-the art studios with experienced engineers. Out of 300+ applicants, only 21 hand-selected bands and artists made their way to the Mexico City studio from November 10 through December 1, 2013. As a follow-up, Converse is releasing exclusive, behind-the-scenes videos of select recording sessions from both established and up-and-coming Mexican artists.
