I dont know what has taken me so long to blog about this guy, cuz he hooked me with his stuff almost half a year ago. I guess its wanting to save writing about him for a rainy day. and lo and behold, its rainy, and im in a bit of a musical slump.
The Polish Ambassador, or David Sugalski, or as he describes himself, 'Poland's Ambassador to the Universe', rips out pure techno beats, sans vocals. What he lacks in lyrics he makes up for in heavily layered tracks that generate their own emotion in the universal language of music.
Its really worth it to check out his self history on his web site, i dont know how he comes up with this stuff, let alone bases a music career on it.
He released two albums in 2k7, The Phantasmal Farm and Diplomatic Immunity.
Heres my fav track off of Phantasmal Farm
The Polish Ambassador - Astro-American Anthem (YSI)

As to Diplomatic Immunity, Sugalski describes his effort with this story:
"Unfortunately, certain nations still do not recognize my status as an ambassador. Perhaps it is because I am "without birth certificate". They seem to be missing the point. I am an ambassador to the universe. It really pains me that on the great planet of Hopskotch Lippy, I have my own country, a free E-Z pass through the Orbital Noobula Skyway, and a sanitation system named after me. But here, I share a two bedroom, one bath garden apartment with a concubine robot named Trudy. While she is programmed with 100 cookbooks full of offal recipes, sometimes its just not enough.
I made this album to demonstrate my apptitude for an ambassadorial position, specifically to Poland, a nation whose political and cultural merits are often overlooked. I'm not quite sure if its official yet, but someone keeps sending me a weekly package of Makowiec.
Please listen to and purchase this album and then contact your local and national government authorities to inform them of my Diplomatic Immunity. Thank you for your support. You're family and friends are in my thoughts."
Interesting to say the least. Heres the vid for 'Earth Versus the World'
And if you wanted the track, here it is!
