Musik Krause presents the debut album by Feindrehstar. The Jena natives have made a life on the stage as a collective over the last 10 years. Their music so far, spread out over a couple of 7"s and CDs, makes an exhilarating connection between the functional and the ornamental. Their hard-working dance music translates perfectly live on stage with a house essence, a dose of hip-hop, and a funk and jazz base. The sextet is composed of trumpet, saxophone, scratches and samples, bass, percussion, drums, Rhodes and keys, all assembled into an interesting sonic garden. As a unit of virtuoso composers with serious sonic tools, Feindrehstar presents The Vulgarian Knights. The recording took place together with Axel Reinemer and Immo Wischhusen (Flowin' Immo) in Jazzanova Studio in Berlin. The energetic, urban rhythm architecture is credited to brilliant co-production work by Michael Baumann (Soulphiction/Jackmate). From a pure, jammed-out playfulness there grows a sparkling conversation between the winds and the keys; some listeners will also sense a rugged funk, and others finely-honed jazz within an improvised setting. It is the pact between stage excesses and club integrity that Feindrehstar does so well.
