DESTRUCTO has cultivated an incendiary live set that merges heavy metal bombast and propulsive, potent techno. It's unlike anything out there, and he takes it into the studio for TECHNOLOGY, his five-song debut EP out now on Boys Noize’s emerging talent brand BNR TRAX. Featured on TECHNOLOGY, “LA Funky” seamlessly melds the techno sounds of Detroit, Chicago, Berlin and Ibiza into one perfect, year-round dance party. The EP’s title track, “Technology,” is the calling card of DESTRUCTO’s globe-trotting live performances, and drawing on the groove/build/explode dynamic he developed in his national tours with Crystal Castles and Rusko, it's no wonder “Technology” has been in heavy rotation on Sirius XM and found its way into Boys Noize’s and A-Trak's festival sets. Watch the “Technology” video here on OTB!

On “Stand Still,” discerning fans can also sense the influence of rising stars OLIVER, who co-produced the EP.  Within its propulsive groove, a harmonically processed voice dares you to “stand still.” Rounding out the record are contributions from BNR TRAX labelmates Jan Driver and BS1, who respectively take on “Technology” and “LA Funky.”  Jan Driver is Boys Noize’s secret weapon, a producer and mastering engineer extraordinaire who takes the title track into gritty mental mash-up territory.  BS1 provide a skilled re-work of “LA Funky.” DESTRUCTO (Gary Richards) is also the founder of HARD Events, recognized for landmark festivals such as HARD Haunted Mansion, HARD Summer and the three-day electronic music cruise Holy Ship!
