Skalpel - Soundtrack | Video


Skalpel "Soundtrack" - prezentujemy teledysk zapowiadający EP-kę "Simple", której premiera odbędzie się 10 maja 2014 podczas Free Form Festival w Warszawie. Charakter EP-ki "Simple" wydawca opisuje: "jazz tanecznym krokiem wychodzi z ciemnej, zadymionej piwnicy na klubowy parkiet"
Skalpel stworzył klip do "Soundtrack" we współpracy z Natalią Nguyen, która odpowiada za reżyserię i animację. Jeszcze w 2014 roku ukaże się trzeci album Skalpela. Wcześniej duet z Wrocławia zaprezentował inny utwór z EP-ki "Simple" - kawałek tytułowy. Na EP-ce znajdą się łącznie cztery premierowe kawałki, których nie będzie na albumie. .
Zespół Skalpel jest znany z sięgania po polski jazz z lat 60. i 70 i konstruowania na jego bazie własnej autorskiej wizji współczesnej muzyki, łączącej to, co najlepsze w jazzie, hip hopie i muzyce klubowej. Na świecie debiutancka płyta zespołu z 2004 roku znalazła się w podsumowaniu Album Of The Year przygotowanym przez DJ Magazine. Album został też nominowany do BBC - Gilles Peterson Worldwide Music Awards 2004. W opinii BBC zespół muzycznie ulokował się gdzieś w okolicach The Cinematic Orchestra, ale poszedł w bardziej minimalistycznym, wschodnio-europejskim kierunku. “Dryfujące klimatyczności i poszukujące basy zagarniane były w odpowiednim kierunku przez konkretną, wiodącą prym perkusję.”
Zapraszamy do oglądania teledysku!

Skalpel - Simple (taken from Simple EP - to be released on 10.05.2014) | Single


Skalpel returns with new tunes after a lengthy sabbatical.

Duo, established by composers and producers well known in broadly defined electronic music circles. Their trademark was referencing a rich heritage of Polish jazz of the 1960s and the 1970s, with inspiration taken from the likes of Komeda, Stańko, Urbaniak and molding all of those retro ideas into their own original vision of contemporary sound. Two internationally acclaimed albums „Skalpel“ and „Konfusion“ released at that time by Ninja Tune put Skalpel on the radar of curious and avid fans of different genres of music – from jazz, through electronica to club and hip-hop.

After a few years break Skalpel is back with brand new tracks to be released later in the year on „Transit“ album but before it happens there is more music: they will start off with „Simple“ that will give a little sample of band’s new sound and contains three extra tracks that will not feature on the album, a remix and an intro to „Transit“ in the form of it the title track. This will be a treat for those who have patiently waited since 2005.

Eddie Shinn - The Sketches of Scratches | Albums


A label many downtempo fans are familiar with, Cold Busted is back with a new album, using their standing to release music from a mysterious artist from a distant locale. The Sketches Of Scratches album is the second release on the label for Eddie Shinn, a 20 year old artist from Ulyanovsk, Russia. That’s about all the information available on the young producer and that’s okay because the music can speak for itself. The mantra for this release is dusty downtempo cuts with so much soul and melodic application of the ‘scratches’ hinted at in the title.

The album contains many highlights. Classy pianos, keys, and brass with plenty of drum rolls, make the breezy “Disco Stu” a great sign of what’s to come. A sort of funk fusion, “Far and Away” is much more cut up with bursts of beat repeats and some great use of samples and sound effects. “Dead Night" features a lazy, low-down disco vibe with stuttering vocal bits. Coming through with an infectious breakbeat and party ready cheers, “Look Like” could beckon even the most discerning dancers to get up and get down. “Work All Night And All Day” and “Next Point” both use horns to differing effect, while at the same time continuing to carry the tone of the album. Eddie Shinn’s The Sketches Of Scratches puts Ulyanovsk solidly on the Cold Busted map, seducing global headz with its infectious ‘Volga beats.’

Lo Creed - Hope | Albums


We reach into Athens, Greece to expose the funky sound of Apollo Neopoulos, also known as Lo Creed. He debuts his style of ‘Mediterranean hop’ on the eleven track album titled Hope, showcasing funky flavorings, punchy beats, and gritty instrumentation. Highlights include the late night strut of “Stay United,” the sensual bedtime funk of “Remind,” “Join The L.U.V. Club” with its lush strings and piano over crisp drums, and the album’s title track with its appealing bounce and layers of sampled freshness. It will quickly become evident that Lo Creed’s Hope is indeed ‘dope’ … grab hold and get down.
