{     Skalpel 1958     }    

These Polish madmen have been experimenting in a laboratory full of old jazz records and fresh-as-hell beats, cranking out something elegant and beautiful, a nice addition to the Ninja Tune repertoire. While the end product will inevitably get mislabeled as "acid-jazz" or "sample-heavy big beat", what we're really looking at here is straight up jazz that just happens to be created using turntables, sampling and programming as instruments. This little ep for the track "1958" is just a taste of the full length which will be dropping April 19th. Using native jazz artists, these cats are set to shove all those bad Pollock jokes back down your uncle's throat. Classy enough for the concert hall, but clearly oriented for the club, Skalpel's work is intelligent, crisp and infectious. A year from now you'll be hearing this in bourgeoise wine shops and pretentious bistros, it's cool enough that they'll all want to pimp it's ambience and bask in the glow: So you better get your hands on their stuff now before the cooler-than-yous can tell you they're cooler-than-you for having heard it first. Also, Ninja Tune is running a remix contest with a sick, sick grand prize.... I'll just quote directly from Ninja Tune's promo for the contest- "In order to celebrate this release and all things Polish we are offering you a chance to win a trip to Warsaw to attend the launch party of the Skalpel album on the 15th May and experience some of Poland's rich musical heritage - and probably drink quite a lot of vodka too. The prize, for you and a friend, includes airline travel to Warsaw from several European locations, 2 nights accomodation, VIP entry to the Punkt club and you get to hang out with Skalpel, the dons of the Polish scene. Your winning remix of the track 'Break In' will also appear on a forthcoming Skalpel B-side - if it's good enough, of course." Get your crossfader greased up and check out the link below for more info on how to download the track and get 'mixin.
