CD review – Dutch bass magazine, by Marten Schulp

All promises are lived up to on ‘Falling From Insanity’. On the first track we are hit by funky horns accompanied by a great feel from the drummer and a groovy bass line. From start to finish it’s one big party on this terrific record.

Stefan Redtenbacher is an Austrian bassist, operating from England.
In principal, ' Funkestra’ is an electrified big band, led by a bass-playing groove monster. The sound is partly based on 60's and 70's funk.
One of the greatest funk horn players from that era, Fred Wesley, formerly of James Brown's Band, is even playing on a track.

But Redtenbacher has been able to combine these ancient sounds of funk with deliciously warped sounds, for example the cunning use of fat-sounding filters on his bass. Of course, he uses the well known sound of the Mu-tron but he also puts his bass through backward delays and slowly opening filters which creates a hauntingly swelling bass 'carpet' coming out of the speakers.
The ‘festive’ feeling is even more increased by the use of female vocals and a spherical flute.

The seventies fusion sound is continuously helped with subtle samples and sounds. The liner notes mention that Redtenbacher is responsible for the low end and other noises. Besides all this he has also written all the music. That's a fresh new way for a bass player to show his talents rather than making a record full of enormous bass solos. ‘Falling From Insanity’ is a 'danceable' little masterpiece filled with exciting stuff, great horns and a lot of irresistible grooves.
