Ukrainian electronic project Vzryvatieli ("exploders" - rus.) was established by an old-timer of domestic pop-scene Vasyl' Tkach (vasyltkach) and Andrey "Fenn" Negrescu in 1996 under moniker Dr.Tka4 & Mr.Fenn, under which they've produced 8 songs, including popularized later Хорошо and several remixes.
After the arrival of Maxim Gudz' and Yuriy Myslyvets' the name was changed to a present one, Negrescu has left the game and Tkach has got a complete control over production. In this configuration the band has released their single MC album Странные дни ("strange days" - rus.) in 1998. In 1997 a remarkable video for Странные дни appeared. It's worth to notice that on a cassette inlay card Yuriy Myslyvets' was mentioned only as Y. M., a needed measure to hide from a university lecturers who was complaining about missing the study for music.
Interestingly, in the late 90-s Tkach has became such a widely recognised figure in local show biz, so he was able to gather several other popular names of the day to record material for Vzryvatieli. Namely, the track Море Солнце Воздух Ветер features vocals of Сасквач, Птица, sound engineer Dmytro Syrkin. Unfortunately, this prominent song hasn't made it's way into initial album and was released later in extremely rare CD compilation "Tka43vuk" in 1999 by a Kyiv label Rostok records.
Other remarkable fact is that the most lead synthesizer sounds on all tracks were performed on an ancient analog synth Roland Jupiter 4, bought by Tkach during the tour in Odessa sometime in mid 90-s for a very laughable money. Even more fun is that the same device was sold by him 10 years later to other guys in the same city and nearly for the same sum.
In the Fall 1998 an advertisement for the Strange Days album was frequently aired on a Gala FM, featuring voice of Vasyl' Tkach.
In 2004 the Странные дни was re-released on CD by a Bog Da Nova label. By this time the band was long as defunct. vasyltkach works now as a freelance producer and song writer. Gudz' and Myslyvets' went into development business.
