Ras Luta and Pionear started working together exactly 15 years ago in February 2005, when recording for Poland’s first ever Reggae & Dancehall compilation “Polski ogień”, released by Warner Music Polska the following year. Followed by productions for Luta’s band project “EastWest Rockers” and his first solo effort “Jeśli​ ​Słyszysz” the both coming full circle now with an entirely custom made album played by Pionear’s studio band The Germaicans. You might ask why a Reggae album now? Because it’s not so much about trends and number of streams, but rather about two stubborn musical friends paying tribute to “their” music!

The release’s lyrics shed light on observations and experiences made by Ras Luta when looking at his musical career and general life. Thus the overall impetus is that of a “grown up” classic Reggae album. The title track “Lepsze dni” , “Masz w sobie siłę ft. Junior Stress”, “Dom w chmurach” all are vivid testament to Luta’s love for Roots Reggae and prove his excellent songwriting. Still the album holds surprises, with trappy “Zimny kamień” and of course the niyahbinghi-r’n’b-power-ballad-hybrid “Szadrach, Meszach & Abednego” and it’s unique ‘spiritual’ feel. 

The previously released singles “Stop”, “Rozdarty” carrying more of a pop song structure. The third single “Mój ogień” and “Jak na początku” are both relicks of Jamaican classic riddims. In case you wondered if there is an “off” track you should definitely check out the Two-Tone-Ska stomper “Szarzy ludzie”. Finally “Prosty rim” is not only a hommage to the glorious 90s in Dancehall music but also the new single which heralds the album release on February 21st 2020!

To seal what will be probably the most important Polish Reggae release of the year mastering was provided by platinum certified Sascha “Busy” Bühren (Peter Fox, Seeed) from Berlin / Germany.
