В этом году исполнилось 10 лет, как не стало лидера группы Гражданская Оборона Егора Летова — время трибьютов и каверов на песни ГО. Один из представителей поколения "Нашего радио", Найк Борзов, при участии Феликса Бондарева, в послужном списке которого такие проекты, как Горностай, RSAC, Щенки и другие, записал свою версию песни "Про дурачка" — и выпустил одновременно с клипом режиссера Романа Крутякова.
Of the fresh covers in the compilation, "By Love" was also included, which Moscow disco-synth-pop band Yuyu recorded for the song of the group Mumiy Troll. The main composition of the group, created in 2010, is Mumiy Troll guitarist Artem Krtsin and vocalist Jemma Lvovich. Influenced by The Whitest Boy Alive, MGMT and Golden Silvers, they create a dance space disco soaked with retro futurism of the 80s, modernizing familiar rhythms. In 2011, YuJu won the Metro on Stage competition, and since then they have performed at metropolitan concert venues.
