about

A year has passed since Berlin based musician jilski started playing his music in the busy but thankful streets and places of Berlin. For his debut album "things come different", he took the same hand-made, soulful mentality to the studio in order to bring the songs to life through real recorded instruments, drums, piano, guitar, violin and of course the signature double-bass plus voice. Influences span from Pop, Jazz, Funk, Blues to a healthy dose of Dub, Reggae, Rock and experimental Classical music.
The album is being told in one epic, hour-long journey, featuring improvised interludes that guide you, the listener, from one song to the next in an emotional and gripping stream of sound. The themes of the songs revolve around forbidden love, broken hearts, the way that live teaches us it's secret ways with hidden signs, the ups and downs of a man who tries to live life to the fullest, all composed very honestly, down to earth.
Similar to this natural tendency of songwriting, the artist put great effort into a true, natural recording process which involved no computers until the very last stages of digitalization. Everything has been recorded to 8-track reel-to-reel tape, mixed and mastered through fine, in part custom-made or modified analog equipment, with no corrections of any sort made to the music itself. jilski: "It has always been really important to me that inmidst all this technological, fast-paced world, as an artist I don't participate in any sort of illusional competition – I want people to hear me just as I sound, no corrections of my voice or rhythm of any kind, as if you could listen directly to the emotions: I want to go back to a natural sound that touches the soul rather than the brain."

This is an honest journey recorded in an honest way and we would like to invite you to join us and take a listen.

Track Name: Changes
Changes – they come all at once.
The fruits we reap belong to anyone.
Changes – they come all the same.
Embrace them now and never be the same again.

Turnin' - I feel it all the way.
Never worry that it wouldn't stay.

Changes – they come all at once.
The fruits we reap belong to anyone.
Changes – they come all the same.
Embrace them now and never be the same again.

Until we fully come alive...
The pains that we once felt – they will be left behind.
Before we boldly cross the sea,
Merely shadows you and me,
You and me, you and me.

Let me fly up to the stratosphere!
I will call you when I'm there!
But first, you have to let me, let me go!
Let me go down to the place I fear!
I will save you when I'm there!
('Cause - You know)

Aspects of worry let me be their slave,
Until we break out of their spectral cave.

Until we fully come alive...
The pains that we once felt – they will be left behind.
Before we boldly cross the sea,
Merely shadows you and me,
You and me, you and me.

Sleeping is where the goddess live(s).
Never worry that it wouldn't stay.
That it wouldn't stay-ay,
Until we,
Until we,
Until we,
Until we come alive,
Come alive...
(...)

Hold me when we're cold
And kiss me when we are warm baby.

And I say things are gonna be alright...

A thousand fights we('re) winning,
But loosers soon we are, right?

Track Name: Checkin' In (I Understand You)
Checkin' in -
And I'd rather be at home, oh-oh.
You'd rather be away, I understand you.

Flyin' off, why should we ever look behind, no-oh?
And not just burn our perfect love? I understand you.

Woman in the window is that you-uh?
I'll throw that angry line right back at you.
Woman in the window getting naked.
This will never be the love that we make it.
Life will never be the same once we fake it.
I will never be the one, who could take it, oh,
Who could take it, oh,
Who could take it, oh.

Our spirits free, so let it run the way it would, oh-oh.
Enjoy your careless day and this momentum.

Breakin' up, things won't stay the way they've been, oh-oh.
You'll be hurtin' quite a lot – I understand you!

Woman in the window is that you-uh?
I'll throw that angry line right back at you.
Woman in the window getting naked.
This will never be the love that we make it.
I will never be the same once we fake it, oh.

[break]

You gotta burn for that dirty demeanor,
Put all the efforts into getting familiar.
Ain't no exception to the rules tho' I hear-ya.
Back into the boat and we rock the interior.

Misconception of the feelings that carry-ya.
Put all the efforts into getting familiar.
Ain't no inception to the thought, just a carrier.
Back into the gradual reception of the singular,
The singular.

Checkin' in and I'd rather be alone, oh.
You'd rather feel away, I understand you.
You('re) feeling cast away, I understand you.
You('re) feeling thrown away, I understand you.
Track Name: Good Good Bye Bye
You – I – together – forever
No control, just our pleasure.
Nothing's real, it's all better.

How addicted I have been
To your - imaginary land.
Haven't seen my, my life anymore,
My love anymore, my life, 'cause...


Now that I woke up,
(I) have to save my sanity.
Learn to resist you baby, break your spell.
I... have to say...

Good good bye bye,
Bye bye, forever and ever.
(...)


You – I – together – forever
No control, why?
Just our pleasure.
Nothing's real, but just bitter.

Learn to resist you baby, yes I will.
'Cause I... have to say...

Good good bye bye,
Bye bye, forever and ever.
(...)


[break]

Good good bye, yeah.


Cut all temptation
And you will set me free.
Cut all these answers
And nothing will be left, yeah.

Now that I woke up,
Have to save my sanity,
Learn to resist you baby,
Break your spell.
Track Name: Sun Goes Down
I've been waiting
For a change of seasons.
Rainy days turn to,
Turn to endless nights.
Blazin' heat
Will burn away
Heavy feelings that were 'bout to, 'bout to stay, yeah.

I've been waiting
For a change of seasons,
But so far,
It hasn't come.
Yet I'm not
Laying down these hopes.
Maybe one day
It will grace us,
Grace us, yay.
It will grace us, yay.

How I love it, when the sun goes down.
Last sunray warms my body.
Gentle summer breeze, caress' my soul.
Try to cool it, but I make it, make it glow, yeah.

[piano solo]

I've been hearing
'Bout the wind that carries
Ancient seeds,
That shake up lives.
Natural course
Of rise crumble,
When it's my turn,
I won't stumble, no.

How I love it, when the sun goes down.
Last sunray warms my body.
Gentle summer breeze, caress' my soul.
Try to cool it, but I, but I make it glow, yeah.

But I make it glow, yeah.
Just as the sun goes down.
There's no room for envy,
As I pass around this crown, oh-oh.
As I pass around this crown.
(...)

I've been hearin'
That the wind will carry
New found life to
Dried out soils.
And I know, oh-oh.
When you let it be,
It will come.
(...)
Track Name: Middle Of This Road
Had a dream, I'm in the middle of this road.
Rarely seen so many people in one spot.
They came around a giant castle made of sand.
It's a door, a door to your subconscious land, yeah.

(But, I say:)
I do not agree, yay, I do not agree!!
I do not agree, I do not agree!!

Have you asked these people what they need?

Imagination – that's what they're trying to unteach
(Yes, they do)
Who are these leaders movin' awareness out of reach.
You realize, we're puppets on our way to dust.
Turn around, look who's the slave and who's the boss.

I do not agree, yay, I do not agree!!
I do not agree, (no I don't), I do not agree!!

Power to them people!
Liberate them all!
Power to them people!
No more mind control!

Power to them people!
Liberate them all!
Power to them people!
No more mind control, yay.
No more mind control!

Had a dream, I'm in the middle of this road.
Rarely seen, saw people runnin' to a boat.
(But)
The devils work it was, it wouldn't sail to paradise,
(But instead)
I tried to scream, but saw indifference in their eyes!

(So I say)
I do not agree, I said, I do not agree!!
I do not agree, (I don't), I do not agree...

Power to them people!
Liberate them all!
Power to them people!
Drop that subtle control!

Power to them people!
Liberate them all!
Power to them people!
No more mind control, oh-oh,
No more mind control.
(...)
Track Name: Purify
Livin' in a cloud of smoke!
I'm barely able to control...
... Another ground before I reach...
Has life been passive just to teach?

Helpless children of the machine -
Browsing past their precious senses!!
Senseless colored plastic dream -
Virtual time that may feel endless.

And now I've asked to purify!
Take one step backwards and deny:
Access in my subciouscious land!
Real life will catch up in the end!
Whooo!

Bein' blasted with unnatural waves...
Balance in my brain is what I crave!
It's feelin' hungry for some primal rhythm(s),
As they unfold as through a prism.

And now I've asked to purify!
Take one step backwards and deny:
Access in my subciouscious land!
Real life will catch up in the end!

Slowly,
I watch the curtain lift.
Colors dancin' as they flood in.
Dear life, you have made me love you much.
And things feel pure as I have asked.

Slowly,
I watch this scenery fill.
Colors dancin' as they flood in.
Dear life, you have made me love you much.
And things feel pure as I have asked,
And I feel purified at last...

Resolution now it came!!
Is this solution or is it bane?!
How will I swim among these streams:
Of senseless colored plastic dreams!?

(YEAH!!!)

Help me lord it's draggin' me in again,
Has all the struggling been in vain?
Is there no escaping all of this?
Back to nature, back to bliss!!

And now I've asked to purify!
Take one step backwards and deny:
Access in my subciouscious land!
Real life will catch up in the end!
(...)
Track Name: Feel This Way
Never tried to feel this way,
And I'd rather walk away.
Never asked 'bout anything,
And I wonder what it brings,


Cause I'm...
... always on the search for night and day
And I'm...
...always on the line of fallin' away
It's the...
...edge of this world is where I stand.
You won't believe, what I became...
What I became...
(...)


Never tried to wake this thing,
Now I'm listening when you sing.
How it slipped past self-control...
When it feels right, it feels wrong!


Cause I'm...
...always on the line of fallin' away.
And I'm...
... always on the search for night and day.
It's the...
...edge of this world is where I stand.
You won't believe what I became...
What I became...
(...)


Never really tried to take up
Make up - break up.
Have you waited long to feel this way?
Never really tried to take up
Break up - make up.
Never waited long to feel this way.
Never really tried to take up
Make up - break up.
Have you waited long to feel this way?
Never really tried to take up
Make up - break up.
Never waited long to feel this way,
Feel this way, feel this way,
Feel this way...

Track Name: Outro (I Was Gonna)
I was gonna
Play a concert,
But I smoked some pipe instead.
What was I gonna do now, baby?
I will smoke this gig instead.


I was gonna
Play some music,
But rolled a spliff instead.
What was I gonna do now, baby?
I will smoke this tune instead.
(Oh, for real!)


She was gonna
See the doctors
But we stayed in bed instead,
You know what I mean?
(She knows, she knows.)
What were we gonna do now, baby?
(A) thousand dreams will heal us instead.
(They will, for sure, common...)


But when it comes to sin,
When it comes to sinnin', yeah.
But when it comes to sin,
When it comes to sinnin', yeah.

But when it comes to sin, baby.
When it comes to sinnin', yeah, oh-oh.
But when it comes to sin,
When it comes to sinnin', yeah.

[piano break]


I was gonna look for meaning,
But I found a song instead.
What was I gonna do now?
Meaning found me...
Singing instead, oh!

Singing instead, oh!
(...)
Singing instead.
