H. Scott Salinas And Jackson Greenberg’s Score Immerses Listeners Into The Drama Of The Mexican Cartel Conflict


First-time creative collaborators [composers H. Scott Salinas and Jackson Greenberg], the divergence in age, experience, and iTunes playlists between them resulted in distinct challenges and a unique simultaneously colloquial and non-verbal counter-intuitive synchronicity elegance. -Michael Rogers, Film Music Magazine

Cartel Land (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

It’s been a great experience listening to this score. There are a lot of ways they could have approached the score, but I feel that the mix is really good. There’s some obvious Mexican inspired cues and then there’s a number of soft ambient cues and even some electronica and some action. I definitely enjoyed this. –Soundtrack Geek
