About this Event
Cześć, tu Sławomir!

Twórca, wokalista, wizjoner, aktor. Kreator nowego gatunku muzycznego Rock Polo, czyli połączenia muzyki tanecznej ze szlachetnym rockowym brzmieniem. Osobowość telewizyjna, prowadzi cykle w programach: „Pytanie na Śniadanie” TVP2, Fura Gwiazd w „Dzień Dobry TVN” oraz „Śląska Karuzela” dla TVS. W jego teledyskach występują największe gwiazdy. Małgorzata Socha, Ewa Kasprzyk, Krzysztof Kiersznowski, Lech Dyblik, Witold Dębicki oraz legendarna Grupa Vox.

Po raz pierwszy słynne już przywitanie “Cześć, tu Sławomir” mogliśmy usłyszeć 24 lutego 2014 roku, kiedy to w sieci, na oficjalnym kanale artysty pojawił się pierwszy film z jego udziałem. W zaledwie trzy miesiące od premiery „Megiery”, Sławomir został zaproszony na Sopot Hit Festiwal, gdzie wystąpił jako gwiazda. Narodziny nowej muzycznej legendy z zapartym tchem oglądały tysiące ludzi w Operze Leśnej oraz miliony widzów przed telewizorami. Mimo późnej pory, artysta Rock Polo poderwał cały amfiteatr. Jego siła estradowa była niepodważalna. W ciągu następnych dwóch dni posypały się propozycje z „Dancing with the Stars”, programu „Twoja Twarz Brzmi Znajomo” oraz największych wytwórni muzycznych.

Dziś stoją za nim dziesiątki tysięcy fanów uwielbiających jego niebanalne poczucie humoru oraz znakomity głos. Cechy, którymi otworzył sobie drzwi do wielkiej kariery.

A kariera Sławomira funkcjonuje wzorcowo jak silnik 1.9 tdi w jego ukochanym, czerwonym golfie trójce. Ma tysiące fanów w Ojczyźnie. Potwierdził to Muzyczny Rekord Polski w projekcie crowdfundingowym na platformie „wspieram.to”. Dzięki zagorzałym fanom Sławomir nagrał swój debiutancki longplej „The Greatest Hits”. Polska scena muzyczna nie widziała jeszcze takiej płyty: album już w preorderze stał się bestellerem sieci Empik, obecnie ma już status Podwójnej Platynowej płyty, a piosenka „Miłość w Zakopanem” stała się najczęściej oglądanym clipem na YouTube w Polsce. Jej obecny wynik to ponad 198 mln odtworzeń, co oznacza, że jest to najpopularniejsza polska piosenka w historii polskiego YouTube. Album zawiera 11 dopieszczonych rock-polowych kawałków porywających nogi do tańca i wywołujących uśmiech na twarzy. Ale i nie tylko! Na krążku znalazły się utwory, których nie powstydziłby się żaden wielki artysta. Utwory przywołujące wspomnienia, wprowadzające w stan zamyślenia, nostalgii, utwory z duszą! Z prawdziwą duszą od prawdziwego artysty.

Bo takim właśnie jest Sławomir. Człowiek, który udowodnił, że nie ma rzeczy niemożliwych i warto gonić swe marzenia. Zapała nikogo nie udaje. Jest tym samym Sławomirem w “Tańcu z gwiazdami”, “Twoja twarz brzmi znajomo”, na scenie w Sopocie czy w filmach na swoim kanale na YouTube, który ma już ponad 771 tys subskrypcji.

Badźcie z nami!

To będzie najgorętszy koncert roku 2019!

About this Event
PopGun Presents

of Montreal

Two important events occurred during the making of White Is Relic/Irrealis Mood. I became “Simulated Reality” paranoid and I fell in LOVE.

Well a lot more happened during the process of writing and recording, but those are the two big ones. I also reached a healthy point of self-forgiveness for my failed marriage and became deeply educated in the lies of America the Great.

I feel like a switch was recently turned on in my brain and now I’m beginning to see through the lies that have been fed to me my whole life by the masters of media and by those who control and manipulate the narrative of our cultural identity and social order.

My paranoia began during the presidential election cycle and reached a dangerous peak shortly after the inauguration. In the meantime I watched and read countless works of art in a mad effort to be reminded of how many truly brilliant people there are living/struggling among us and to try to maintain a positive outlook. The works of Angela Davis, Noam Chomsky, Chris Kraus, Ta-Nehisi Coates, and the Autobiographies of Malcolm X and Mark E Smith were all great inspirations, to name a few.

Musically, I was very inspired by the extended dance mixes that people used to make for pop singles back in the ‘80s. It’s so cool how a lot of the 80’s hits had these really intricate and interesting longer versions that wouldn’t get played on the radio and could only be heard in the clubs. I used that template with these tracks, I wanted them all to feel like the extended “club edit” of album tracks.

I also decided to abandon the “live band in a room” approach that I had been using on the recent albums and work more on my own or remotely with collaborators. I used the same drum sample packs throughout because I wanted the album to have a rhythmic continuity to it. I wanted the drums to have a strong and consistent identity, similar to how Prince’s Linn Electronics LM-1 drum machine played such an important role on his classic albums. Zac Colwell also played a huge role on this album, adding saxophones and synths to most of the songs. I also got a lot of help from long time collaborators, and “of Montreal” touring members, Clayton Rychlik and JoJo Glidewell.

The two title concept came to me when I was thinking about how difficult it is to frame the message of a song with just one title, because so often the songs are about so many different subjects. ‘White Is Relic’ was inspired by James Baldwin’s writings regarding the creation and propagation of a toxic American White identity. I’ve come to learn how it’s just a tool wielded by the 1% to give poor white people a false sense of superiority in an effort to keep the masses placated and numb to how deeply we’re all getting fucked by our capitalist rulers. An ‘Irrealis Mood’ is a linguistic indicator that something isn’t yet reality but does have the potential to become so.

I’m always searching for new identities so this concept of the death of “Whiteness” appeals to me greatly. Might be the only way to save the world.
