If you haven't yet heard of David Sugalski also known as The Polish Ambassador, prepare yourself - dude is about to blow up. Mark my words.
The most recent signee to STS9's 1320 Records label released his latest album, entitled "Future, Sex, Computers," last week and is already gaining considerable buzz across the Interwebs and rightfully so.
PA's sixth studio effort is definitely his most complete to date, showcasing sounds that go from booty-shakin' grooves to slow, sensual chill-out tunes.

Not only are the tracks a breath of sonic fresh air compared to the loud, high-frequency noise populating the scene today, but each song title represents a creative journey that Sugalski carefully crafts and invites the listener to follow him on.
The first three tracks showcase his versatility and the ease with which he shifts between danceable electro, hip-hop and even some glitchy IDM. While the entire album is jam-packed with killer tunes and covers a lot of ground musically, there are a few songs that I found myself placing on repeat.
"Quantum Peeps," the first cut on the album, is the kind of beat feast that PA serves up on the reg during his entertaining live shows where the bleeps and blaps outweigh bass bangers in the most beautiful of ways.

The second track, "Save, Develop, Protect," while still a tune you can nod your head to, has so much emotion behind it, it's almost palpable.
On "Rising in the Wake of Supernova," Sugalski soothes and scintillates while dropping intricate melodies and trancey female vocals at just the right time to where the listener is placed into a state that can only be described as the uber-chill zone.
"Space Leaf Dub," another perfectly titled track, is a dub-plate littered with reggae-esque and hip-hop glitched out vocals that are perfect to jam while floating through the nether realms of our solar system. And honestly, there isn't a better soundtrack to explore the universe to than "Future, Sex, Computers."
