East-German electronic project DSTR will be releasing their highly anticipated new E.P. “RE-START” early 2019. Introducing an all new line up with three veterans of the electronic music scene – with members from Haujobb, Slave Republic and Audiotherapie – DSTR is back to infuse a fresh new sound to the German club and festival scene. Daniel Myer (Vocals), Alec Fu (Guitar, Keyboard, Vocals) and Niko “Molle” Kötzsch (Keyboard) played several shows in 2018 (Wave Gothic Treffen, Athens, Berlin and Leipzig) as a newly formed trio with great success, leading to the idea of writing a successor to the 2007 album “Loudspeaker” and “Silent World” (2010).
With the new material, DSTR will push into a new direction but keep the driving vocals and beats, which have become their signature elements. The first reactions of the bands´ international fanbase to the new material was extremely positive, which proved that it was the right move to combine their individual songwriting skills. DSTR will be playing selected shows in the U.S. in March 2019, with a highlight appearance at SXSW in Austin, Texas.
