In light of “Throwback Thursday or #tbt” which involves posting something that has nostalgic value, we at RunTheMill wanted to turn this popular convention on its head. This weekly posting will share a song that is either ahead of its time or attempts to push us out of our comfort sound zone.

Redtenbacher’s Funkestra – “Baby Fat”

Just a saxophone-honking, carefree, and funky jam on this Futuristic Friday. Stefan Redtenbacher is the bassist, composer and mastermind behind this band, in which he tries to combine his roots in jazz, soul, and funk. He is an alumni of the Vienna Conservatory and the Berklee College of Music and has worked with the likes of Steve Winwood and Amy Winehouse. If the title “Baby Fat” is any indication, Stefan doesn’t take himself too seriously. We need this this weekend.
