Re-release of Saltillo's epic Ganglion including one bonus track. Fanpack version comes with an exclusive Saltillo t-shirt designed by Menton J. Matthews III and a Saltillo button.
Menton J. Matthews III is one of those artists who should have lived in the sixteenth century, along with Shakespeare and da Vinci. His project Saltillo grew out of the ashes of Sunday Munich but perfects a style of electronic and violin-laden trip-hop that is original, seductive, and bold. The first album Ganglion was released in 2005 and now sees a re-issue through Artoffact Records featuring a bonus track and remastered. Recommended if you like: Portishead, DJ Shadow, Massive Attack.
With “Ganglion,” Saltillo has truly thrown down the gauntlet over what it means to create a truly original trip-hop album in today’s music scene.

For once, the press sheet hype ('quite possibly the finest release we've ever heard') doesn't seem like hyperbole.

Ganglion offers what music should be about. The artist fused Hip-Hop beats into orchestral overtures which was desperately needed. Because they do nothing with the big kettle drums they have. It is reminiscent of Rob Dougan's Furious Angels CD. In a world that always tries to label everything as something at the end of the day is's Just good music
