RotFront is the brainchild of Yuriy Gurzhy, an expat Ukrainian musician, well known as one half of the legendary Berlin-based Russendisko DJ collective, and his Hungarian fellow Simon Wahorn (ex-Balaton, Batu Karmen), a musician and DJ-originator of the Hungaro Groovers Soundsystem.
The band has been active since 2001 in various line-ups, staying faithful to their unique blend of eclectic styles, most notably reggae, klezmer, hiphop, cumbia and punk. Their turbo-driven "emigrantski raggamuffin" music, as they themselves call it, deals with everyday life in Berlin and adventures of an immigrant in a big city.
