By this spring Viacheslav Drofa (OTOY) was going to release his first debut album. It could finally confirm he’d got a significant name in Ukrainian rap. But when the full scale war started, Viacheslav got involved in volunteering, training as part of the Special Operations Forces of Ukraine, and founded the charity fund “Ahov” . In the meantime, he didn’t forget about music.
Now he is releasing mini album Околофронт (Nearfront), which lyrics is remarkably informative and contains a musically deliberate statement about various aspects of the war. Even now it can be called the main contender for album of the year in Ukraine.
