Stefano De Santis
Rome based, Stefano De Santis is conservatory trained and raised on the music of
Herbie Hancock, Weather Report and Azymuth.
He has been a go-to session player in many projects across multiple genres - from jazz to funk, reggae, and pop. In 2017, he launched the ‘Big Beat’ trio who blended pure jazz with new synth sounds and syncopated drum patterns. Later, in 2020, Stefano teamed up with his friend and consummate drummer, Gaetano De Carli to form Re:Fill. Since then, the duo have taken their music to a further level and developed a brace of imaginative and complex grooves. Gaetano provides a rich musical background to combine with Stefano’s soulful synth-work, balancing the old world and the contemporary. Their first record, ‘Cycles’, on Cognitiva Records, was released in June 2022 and features important collaborations with heavy-hitters from the UK’s DJ- producer scene, Ben Hauke and WheelUp.
Stefano has really pushed his musical boundaries on this solo excursion ,“Unreachable Galaxy“ EP (Ramrockrec), highlighting his jazz-funk roots and ever developing studio production skills. This EP showcases Stefano’s diverse palette of sounds where he effortlessly blends a flowing broken beat rhythm section, next level hip hop, future jazz, latin and funk throughout the entire project.
His last release is a new 7inch, titled Barra Nova, out for TenLoversMusic.
The recording’s title track, builds off the energy of Stefano’s’ recent Ten Lovers Music track “Song For George D” (2022’s Best of Various), blending together Brazilian- influenced jazz fusion, cosmic keyboard grooves, and broken beat rhythms primed for the dancefloor. On the flip, the Stefano slows things down a bit on “Partido#2”, with a more balearic-meets-broken beat vibe. For the two-track session, Stefano plays a number of keys including Rhodes, Moog, Prophet 5, Solina Strings Ensemble, Juno 6, and upright piano, as well as the percussions on the recording.
