With Redtenbacher’s Hausmusik, Stefan wanted to go full circle and produce an album which featured the classic four-on-the-floor disco drum beat, upbeat tempos, infectious bass lines and Stefan’s pet love: horns and lots of them, but played by around 30 live musicians with very little programming in sight.
The resulting album is an up-beat, intense and ultra-danceable deep house, disco/jazz/funk offering with a big-band-horn vibe on top, infectious bass lines in the bottom and lots of gutsy guitars and crunchy organ in the middle.
It features funk legends like Stephen ‘Doc’ Kupka and Lee Thornburg from Tower of Power, Fred Wesley on Trombone and the funkiest musicians from the London music scene.
