DAKAR, front man of the infamous duo DAKAR & GRINSER is back on the scene ! Dakar , aka Christian Kreuz, was born with a guitar in one hand and a microphone in the other.

The music is sexy, dirty , and explosive: electronic + rock..n.. roll. Their big break comes in 1999 with the release of their album “Are You Really Satisfied Now?” Hailed by NME and other music press as outstanding and groundbreaking, the album receives rave reviews from critics and fans alike.
