BLOTO: “Erozje” LP. Released 29th May 2020

Highly-anticipated debut LP from mysterious Polish quartet Bloto, who
gained a swift cult following in their native country, with white label copies
of ‘Erozje’ selling out in a matter of hours.
They combine rock solid drums – inspired by underground hip hop – with thrilling improvisational jazz, to create a sound that’s right on point for 2020. It all
started in the summer of 2018 when EABS was touring and the band had a day
off. As they were approaching Tricity, people were getting off and eventually
there were only four musicians. An evening off, a well-tuned rhythm section on
the road, harmonious as can be, and a great deal of creative potential within
the members of Bloto band forming at that very moment stirred up common
enthusiasm.
The album was created without much deliberation, stemming from the need
of the heart and the joy of making music together. As a result, 90 minutes of
music was recorded of which about 40 made it to ‘Erozje’. The music is deeply
rooted in brutal hip-hop grooves, referring to the sound of 90’s New York. Dirty
and uncompromising, this music’s strength lies in the drums and bass as its
sound refers to classics such as Wu-Tang Clan and Company Flow. Radical in
a sense, it also captures the atmosphere of the times in which it is created.
The times of the planet on the verge of disaster, distinct social divisions, hate
speech, growing nationalism, police brutality, nepotism, and various political
deals.
“Sleazy and fiery in its texture, ‘Czarne ziemie’ brings together rapid fire
rhythm, off-kilter piano keys, neck-snapping bass and free flowing sax lines.”
– Twisted Soul
