Monocyte is the second CD from Saltillo, the trip-hop electronic meets violin and cello project from Chicago-based artist menton3. The CD is the follow up to the critically aclaimed and super successful Ganglion, which was released in 2006 and re-issued by Artoffact Records in 2011. Monocyte is a concept album, a soundtrack to the comic book of the same name, published by IDW Publishing. The CD is raw, dark, and difficult, presenting a vision of the Monocyte brand that builds on the comic’s energy. RIYL Portishead, DJ Shadow, and Massive Attack.
