Artists: Aaron Steiner (p, synths, voc), Michael Naphegyi (dr, perc, voc), Joachim Huber (b, voc)
Their music is powerful, bold and evocative. For over three years the band Killah Tofu has been present in the young scene as an esteemed Live-Act in Austria (f.e. Zoom! Festival der Jazzwerkstatt Wien), Germany and Serbia. As the next step, the young musicians Aaron Steiner (keys), Michael Naphegy (drums) and Joachim Huber (bass) are now attracting attention with their debut album “Do The Pump”. Ten original compositions, a wild mix of jazz, funk and punk – “jazzpfunk” as they like to say – all aim at pushing their audience out of their comfort zone. Unexpected twists and turns meet atmosperic synthesizer sounds in unusual arrangements. True to their motto “music must be interesting and dangerous” the musicians also worked very freely in their studio sessions (“Tentakel” and “Chicken in the Kitchen”) and infused their entire album with their easy-going and open-minded spirit.
