ABOUT THE RADIO EDIT
‘Squid Exit Music’, written by Dave Limina was originally released on ‘THE HANG’ album. This radio edit was edited and re-mixed by Piers Green and features outstanding UK guitarist Mike Outram on guitar.
‘Squid Exit Music’ was originally recorded live as part of ‘The Hang’ at Masterlink Studio in Surrey/UK. The chemistry between all band members has resulted in what Stefan considers one of the best Funkestra collaborations to date.
THE BACK STORY
In 1996 Dave Limina and Stefan Redtenbacher met at Berklee College of Music and recorded ‘Boozing Wizards’ – the 1st Funkestra album. They have created (Jazz) Funk ever since and have become good friends in the process.
To sum up, with ca 4 million Spotify streams (Feb 2022) the Funkestra are gaining fans worldwide for the their original brand of Groove Jazz nodding towards the greats of the 1970s. The radio edit of ‘Squid Exit Music’ is certainly doing this. We hope you’ll like it.
