Błoto [Mud] is a band that was born by chance. In the summer of 2018, during the concert tour of the Wrocław sextet EABS, on the way to Wejherowo, it was heard that there was a very good studio nearby. A free evening, a harmonious rhythm section and a large potential for creation caused great enthusiasm. However, the place was not ready, but Grzegorz Skawiński showed hospitality and made the well-equipped Maska studio available. That’s where Błoto was born. Two years on, the band continues to work together, releasing new albums.

After the surprising success of the quartet’s debut album, which sold out in no time, the band famous for improvising in difficult conditions, following the momentum, released their second album in 2020 entitled. Kwiatostan [Inflorescence] in collaboration with Astigmatic Records and Warsaw club Jassmine. At the beginning of 2021, the surrounding reality continued to provide the group with inspiration to create. Therefore, the quartet, having another starting point, needed only a small impulse to enter the studio. The catalyst for the next musical meeting turned out to be Polish Radio 2, which came up with the initiative of inviting the band to "Domówka z Dwójką" [At Home with Radio 2]. This was the leaven of Kwasy i Zasady [Acids and Bases], Błoto’s third album.

The music of the Wrocław quartet is firmly rooted in brutal hip-hop, referring very loosely to the sound of the nineties. Dirty and uncompromising, with its strength lying in drums and bass, it also comes across as radical in a way. It reflects the climate of the times in which it was created: unfavourable climate change, jarring social divisions, hate speech, growing nationalism, police brutality, nepotism, political systems and the dismantling of the structures of the rule of law. All this is happening before our eyes. Our soil and social systems are eroding.
