Igor Boxx (Skalpel): Breslau LP

20 Nov

“As Igor Pudlo (a/k/a Igor Boxx) himself puts it: I’m old enough to remember the birth of punk rock, witness the glorious days of golden era of hip-hop and to evolve with my homeland Poland from communism to capitalism and from analogue to digital with my music and since 1991 I help the entropy by being a dj and mixing music (without stylistic limitations) and other noise that people, animals and machines make. I cut and paste all that jazz.“

On Breslau, Igor’s first solo project, he practices what he’s always preached and gives a bit of an explanation about what it means to come from a Central European city of Wroclaw – a unique place with a complex and troubled history that only after WWII was re-incorporated as a part of Poland. This journey from old to new reflects almost half a century and the entire “lifetime of vinyl culture”, a great insight to music from behind the iron curtain. The rest is…. Well, history.”
