After the 10 year break, Pascal reformed DeStijl with a new line-up in 2011 releasing the concept album ‘The White Stripes’.
In late 2012, the band recorded their follow-up album with Chameleons and I am Kloot guitarist Yves Altana producing it. DeStijl then invited Joy Division/New Order former bass player Peter Hook to play and former Happy Mondays backing singer Julie Gordon to perform backing vocals on the new album ‘Something Wicked This Way Comes’.
A few more years pass by and it’s now 2015 and the band records another new album, titled ‘Debut’ featuring Mancunian stalwart Monica Ward on vocals with Julie Gordon and Louise Turner on backing vocals. The album was mixed in LA by former Black Grape member Danny Saber.
This brings us to 2019 and the band has been recording at Eve Studio in Stockport where they hired Jim Spencer (New Order, Electronic, The Charlatans) to mix the 10 brand new tracks. This time, they invited Kermit (Black Grape), Liam Croker (Winachi Tribe), Rikki Turner (San Pedro Collective/Paris Angels), and Scott Jeffreys as lead vocalists. Scott has now become a full-time member on stage

About Winachi’s Liam Croker
French Indie Dance / Rock band DeStijl collaborate with WINACHI frontman Liam Croker and legendary producer Howie B (Massive Attack, Tricky, Bjork) on their latest single F.O.S. The results are a menacing, brooding masterclass in Trip Hop and Electronica. F.O.S is just one the tracks taken from an upcoming collaborative E.P between DeStijl and Liam C which is due for release later in 2021.
About Howie B
One of the founding fathers of Trip-Hop, Pussyfoot Records and his own children – Howie B had a busy 90’s. Howie is a hugely well-respected composer, a musical shapeshifter who has worked his way through countless genres. Having worked with the likes of U2, Bjork, Robbie Robertson, Brian Eno, Sly and Robbie, Massive Attack and Soul II Soul – Howie has become a respected go-to for production and cinematic composition.
His output has grown ever more diverse in scope in recent years, with projects including creating a score for a show at the Milan Planetarium, writing soundtracks for five Chinese feature films in the last couple of years as well as scoring independent films including ‘Dollhouse’, ‘How To sell A Banksy’ and ‘Rabbit’ and most recently the end title music (co-written with Robbie Robertson and Matthew McConaughey)for Martin Scorsese’s film ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’.
The Scottish globe trotter has travelled the world searching for new and interesting talent to collaborate with and nurture. Most recently, Howie has been involved with musical charity Intermission in Asia, which helps young musicians find their way onto the stage.
Now you can find him on a small island in France living as a musical nomad, creating magnificent Chinese film scores and beautiful experimental music of his own.
