Marcin Cichy and Igor Pudło have spent years combining local jazz inspirations with new electronic fascination. Their records caught the attention of the iconic Ninja Tune label, for which the Wrocław-based duo recorded two extremely well-received albums – “Skalpel” and “Konfusion”. The publications earned them a nomination for the Gilles Peterson Worldwide Award, excellent reviews and concerts all over the world. Their third album “Transit” meant leaving music based on samples and going towards compositions created with the use of virtual instruments. Over the last few years, the group played concerts with a big band, performing studio compositions arranged for a 17-person orchestra. The upcoming fourth album titled “Highlight” is the most eclectic record in Skalpel’s career. In Poland, it’ll be
released on NoPaper Records, while in the world it’ll be promoted and distributed by the legendary !K7 Records label (Tosca, Tricky).
