"Our cadre of electronics masterminds bring you eight remixes of Ben Gallinaís Salo- an instrumental septet bent on fusing knotty compositions with intense improvisations, masterfully interweaving gentle and fiery impulses, hard mathematics and ardent blowing. The richness and diversity of the raw material is mirrored in the variety of angles Immigrant Breast Nestís artists chose to approach it.
Here at Immigrant Breast Nest, weíre ecstatic to present this set of unclassifiable sounds. Is this jazz? Was it ever? We donít know. Is it a ground-breaking work of remix genius? Absolutely."
