Biography

There are several artists using this name:

1) Skalpel is a DJs/producer duo (Marcin Cichy and Igor Pudlo) from Wroclaw, Poland. Being part of the Ninja Foreign Legion, they’re among the best-known and most respected DJs and producers, in Poland awarded with Paszporty Polityki (a prestigious, mainstream cultural award).

Four of their mixes were aired on Solid Steel in the past, two of which were released on the “Virtual Cuts” mixtape. In 2000 along with DJ Vadim and his Russian Percussion, they’ve toured the country presenting an amazing 4-deck show. Later that year Skalpel released a demo CD titled “Polish Jazz”, which won them a lot of critical acclaim and a contract with Ninja Tune.

Over the years they’ve built an astounding collection of samples capturing the dusty, smoky spirit of polish jazz from 60s and 70s, and then reimagined it for the 21st century audiophile.

2) For the French rapper Skalpel, member of La K-Bine (with Guez & DJ Akye) and more recently Première ligne (with E.One & Akye), whose texts are clearly against institutional politics, neocolonialism, globalism, consumerism, police brutality, racism, fascism, media control, repression of social movements, etc, and defend insurrectionism, internationalism and approaches the anarchist and revolutionary movement in general, see Skalpel (La K-Bine) and Skalpel (Première Ligne)

    This is the real modern art and the most impressive innovation in jazz and hip-hop music, I think so.

    Music that was made by this people was changed my every musical point of view, help me to create own experimental trip-hop like I see it and hear without fear of opinion or some local justice. Specially want to thank them for "Not to bad", and " The Fairy Tale From a Dusty Crate" :)

    So I've been into this style of music for a while - Hidden Orchestra, Jagga Jazzist, Xploding Plastix, etc - I love this genre because it combines jazz with electronica and sometimes hip hop, which I'm allll about. It took me a longggg time to give this band a chance for some strange reason, but I am IN LOVE WITH EVERYTHING I'VE HEARD FROM THESE DUDES.

    Kto by pomyślał, iż jest już ponad 5 patoli przesłuchań... ! Muza Awangardowa, z wyważoną ekspresją i dynamiką, z impresją, jakich mało w polskich tworach. Panowie poczuli ten angielski powiew i wyfrunęli z abstrakcją, po czym dali ją nam słuchaczom. Nieśmiertelne "Directions" jest cuuudowne <:.
