The Polish Ambassador is the stage name of David Sugalski, a musician, producer, and DJ from Oakland, California who has become a star in electronic music, mixing activism with his art. Sugalski got his start in music while he was studying marketing at the University of Colorado at Boulder, discovering his interest in music production in 2002.
By 2005, Sugalski had assembled an album’s worth of what he called “8 and 16 bit funk/electro anthems” that he digitally released under the moniker the Polish Ambassador, titling the set Diplomatic Immunity. The album soon found support on digital radio, and it wasn’t long before Sugalski had an enthusiastic fan base.
One of Sugalski’s new admirers was a video game designer with backing from Microsoft; he hired the Polish Ambassador to write music for a new game, and the windfall allowed Sugalski to begin pursuing music as his primary career.
