“Boombox” is a talented Ukrainian band whose music is listened to today by representatives of any generation. Therefore, Boombox in London decided to present a good evening to their fans. In the middle of 2004, vocalist Andrii Khlyvnyuk and guitarist Andrii Samoilo created the group “Boombox”. In order to attract additional instruments, it was decided to invite DJ Valik Matiuk to experiment with them.

In a few years, the group gained popularity, their lyrical compositions were heard on every radio station. She gained such popularity thanks to a completely new, unusual style of performing songs – a mixture of different directions:

  • funk,
  • jazz,
  • Hip-Hop,
  • pop,
  • rock.

The musicians quickly composed and recorded the material for the first album, but were in no hurry to release the debut album to the world. Instead, the guys decided on an interesting step: they distributed “sticks” with the recording to their friends.

This was the beginning of the conquest of the musical Olympus by the Boombox group. In April 2005, the first album “Melomania” was released. The album was recorded in the studio in record time – in just 22 hours, or three studio shifts. The album included 11 tracks from numerous preparations of the group.

Unlimited love for the band and their music

Boombox songs are a mirror of human life. They are like friends from your yard. Like dorm roommates who are always aware of your problems and can tell you how to solve them or just listen. And they somehow still remain relevant in a strange way. It all started with the fact that two musicians involved in well-known bands in Ukraine began to compose music together. Moreover, they did it more for their own satisfaction than in the expectation that something serious would come out of the joint venture.

When the question arose about the composition of the team and the format of the band’s sound, vocalist Andriy Khlyvnyuk and guitarist Andriy “Mukha” Samoilo did not start to assemble a large lineup, they offered to experiment with the DJ, the famous scratch master Valik Matiyuk. The group gathered in Kyiv, but all its members come from different cities: vocalist and songwriter Andriy Khlyvnyuk from Cherkasy, guitarist Andriy Samoilo Lutska, and DJ “Valik” Matiyuk from Novovolynsk.
