?Redo from start is a band based in Tokyo, Japan. The aim of ?Redo from start is to use modern dance music production methods and apply them to other styles of music, particularly very downbeat, emotive, and melancholic genres. The thinking is that electronic music should not be limited to what we often associate it with, which is very often a derivative of a form of dance music.

A one man producer, guitarist, keyboardist, and vocalist, ?Redo from start makes tunes from his private studio in the depths of Shinjuku, in Tokyo. Previously called Block 45, the band underwent a name change in August 2011 to coincide with the release of the new album “Vacuum and the shell”. As Block 45, the band has previously released one EP, “Block 45”, also on Metal Postcard records. One of the tracks from the forthcoming album, “Wires”, has appeared on a compilation “Five Years” put out by Dandelion Radio in 2011.
