Well, here we go with another Ninja Tune artist. I don't know why The List and the almighty Random Number Generator keeps picking them. Today's artist is Skalpel with "Flying Officer."

I have only discovered these guys in the last week, so I'm not terribly familiar with their work. Hailing from Poland, the two guys behind Skalpel mix hip-hop beats with samples from 60's and 70's Polish jazz recordings. I've been enjoying their second album, <i>Konfusion</i> ever since I discovered it. Some of the tracks remind me a lot of earlier Amon Tobin songs. I don't have much to say on these guys, but tomorrow I'll have a decently sized write-up of Noisia's contributions to video game music, including soundtrack work for DmC: Devil May Cry and Motorstorm: Apocalypse as well as licensing music to WipEout, Gran Turismo and many other games.

As always, the song was chosen randomly from my list of about 120 unique artists. Please post any of your favorites, new discoveries or anything you have been listening to lately. It doesn't have to relate with whatever I post, just whatever you feel like sharing.
