Song and Kip is part of the “Or Otherwise” project, under which vocalists reinterpret the classics of Polish hip-hop.
– A year ago, together with Olek, we finished the material for the album “Ministory”. We were sitting on the terrace at Jazzboy, when Witek Michalak called Olek and asked him to make a song as part of the “Or Otherwise” project. I love working with Olek, so I immediately blurted out: “Let’s do it together”. I spontaneously invited myself into this project a bit, which I am very happy about today – remembers Kaśka Sochacks. – We started searching songs, albums, various compilations and suddenly I found a song by Łona and Weber, “The Last Prosta”. I knew this text from somewhere and only later realized that Agnieszka Osiecka had once written a similar poem. It turned out that this poem by Osiecka was the inspiration for Łona in writing this issue. It’s a track we’ve been working on on and off since fall. History comes full circle and you can listen to this issue next fall – he adds.

The first album from the “Or Otherwise” series was released in 2015, and its continuation was released three years later. They were featured, for example, by Pezet’s “Re-inflections” sung by Andrzej Dąbrowski or “Red Dress” by Tworzywa Sztuczne by Justyna Święs from The Dumplings. The album “Or Otherwise 2”, on which they performed, among others Krzysztof Zalewski, Natalia Nykiel and Daria Zawiałow, was nominated for the Fryderyk award in the “new performance” category.
