Der Dritte Raum („The Third Room“) is the alias of producer Andreas Krüger and live co-pilot Ralf Uhrlandt. In 1994 D3R signed with Sven Väths Harthouse label, debuted with Elektro Disco EP, followed soon after by the full-length album Mental Modulator in the same year.
They went on to release another full-length on Harthouse (Wellenbad) then, after that label’s demise, signed to Virgin Schallplatten GmbH for their 3rd album Raumgleiter, 4th album Distanz, and Klubraum. D3R is best known as a live PA and is one of the few artists to merge techno, trance, house and funk into one new sound that is uniquely identifiable.
Their largest songs to date are „Hale Bopp“, „Polarstern“ and „Swing Bopp“.
December 2017 Der Dritte Raum released their „25 Years D3R Album“. On this album, pioneering producer Andreas Krüger has assembled numerous classics and hits which have been – with one exception („Plasmatica“, 1992) – entirely RECONSTRUCTED.
