Błoto | Kwiatostan




Błoto is a band that came to being accidentally, yet naturally, like a puddle after a rainy day. It all started in the summer of 2018 when the Wrocław-based EABS sextet had a day off between the concerts in Brzeg Dolny, Łódź and Sopot. The music is deeply rooted in brutal hip-hop grooves, referring quite loosely to the sound of the 90s.


The streets of Warsaw in the first half of 2020 smelled of rain, disinfectant and electrical tension, caused by storms that broke out repeatedly. The black door of the elevator leading to the newly opening Jassmine club was reflected in the puddles. The faces of people passing by were covered with masks, and in street noise, one could hear the soft pulse of bass coming from somewhere below the ground… Two floors below, four musicians known from the EABS group met for the first time since the global pandemic began.  Based on the collective improvisation, they recorded their new material for three days. Despite their previous success, the team did not try to recreate proven patents from ‘Erozje’, but rather treated them as a starting point. We can still hear the influence of the golden era’s hip-hop, but this time the inspiration goes deeper to the connotations with club music (house, juke), and everything, as usual, is based on jazz music. Anthony Mills’ unexpected cameo in his rap incarnation as Toni Sauna completes the album entitled ‘Kwiatostan’.
