Darthreider a.k.a. Rei Wordup(Vo)、オータコージ(Dr)、勝原大策(Ba)、Dub Master X(PA) によるファンク・ロック・バンド。自由奔放なドラムとベースがリズムを叩き出し、片目の眼帯MCが縦横無尽に歌い、全ての音が空間を激しく揺るがす。未体験ゾーンのカッコいい音楽を鳴らす唯一無二のバンドだ。全曲Dub Master X録音（Red Bull Studios Tokyo）&Mixのアルバム”5years”およびライブ盤配信中。2018年度から新ドラマーにオータコージ(曽我部恵一バンド、口ロロ)が加入、更に自由度を増してトベる！

The concept is the groove, the rhythm, the beat.
How low can the bass go?
How wild can the drum get?
And the mic responds!
Space is the place. In their Ju-Jutsu Uniform, the band catches the tail of the funky amd slams it on the floor!
