An expert composer of glitchy vocals, mashed-up beats and strong, catchy synth melodies, San Franciso-based Ample Mammal (David Sugalski, aka The Polish Ambassador) is a one man, eight channel master of mixing samples, kinetic beats, sliced up vocals and elegant atmospheric effects and crescendos. Sugalski’s music is primarily original material, but heavy with mashed-up sounds and samples that are tweaked to near unrecognizability, ala The Chemical Brothers.
Known for his energetic live laptop/midi sets as The Polish Ambassador - bouncing up and down in a signature vintage Swiss jumpsuit, (which he’s considering insuring) and using 5-7 channels - Ample Mammal’s debut 14-track album demonstrates Sugalski’s typical intense vitality and animal charm. However, “Mating Season” is a more varied, downtempo departure from his more high-energy, kitchy alter ego The Polish Ambassador. The jumpsuit is gone and the songs exhibit a more intelligent and intricate artistry.
