Pascal Boniani Koeu better known by his stage name Skalpovich , is a French record producer, composer, songwriter and record executive. Between 2001 and 2006, he was part of duo Kore & Skalp with DJ and producer Kore before continuing solo.


Beginning / Kore & Skalp[edit]

Born in Épinay-sur-Seine (Paris suburb), Skalpovich began his music career as a DJ, producing several mixtapes under the name of "DJ Skalp" in the late 1990s. In 2001, he produced his first solo tracks named Les Chipies for the only album of the R&B girlgroup Honneur Ô Dames.[1] Focusing on composition and production, he created the first French hip hop hitmaker team Kore & Skalp with DJ Kore. Having a major influence after producing successful projects like the soundtrack of the French blockbuster Taxi 3 (EuropaCorp production) and Raï'n'B Fever, they became leaders of the French urban scene. After Kore & Skalp separated in 2006.

Solo career[edit]

After separation, Skalpovich chose to develop his solo career, and took the time to form a new team and to participate to new projects. He entirely produced NBA player Tony Parker's first album titled TP (released in March 2007). Despite moderate success of the album itself, the single "Balance-toi" taken from the album reached number 1 in French charts. After this collaboration that left him with the "Skalpovich" nickname (given by Tony Parker in reference to the San Antonio Spurs coach, Gregg Popovich), he decided to work on a new dynamic by collaborating with lesser-known artists and created a brand new team.

Recognized as a hitmaker and seeing his work played very regularly on major French, European and African radio stations, Skalpovich participated to major artists albums by producing promo singles for almost every project he works on.

His musical style took a new direction while producing most of Vitaa's album, Celle que je vois, especially the very noticed intro "inVitaation". This project was also the occasion for Skalpovich to introduce a new voice, Indila, that he presented during Vitaa's Planète Rap (first hip hop radio show in France) promo as an artist that he and his team developed.


Influenced by DJing, Skalpovich music is a mix of club, oriental and urban which first created the Raï'n'B that is today an established musical style in France and North Africa. His orchestration skills improving year after year, new sonorities are influencing his musical style evolution. From Disco/funk and then Dirty South, he is today a recognized pop producer. His productions, often tented by oriental or "afro-world" references, improve and evolve around a more classical and world music style.

Personal life[edit]

Pascal "Skalpovich" Koeu is married to the singer Adila Sedraïa known as Indila.
