THE TANTAJO RECORDING STUDIO was founded 1995 from Alberto Hauss and  his partners. The acoustic and technique was developed by H. Dethloff. Since then many dance and pop chart hits have been created by Alberto Hauss in this studio as producer and song writer (see below)

After two years in the South of France producing on his Laptop he returned to Hamburg. Hence there followed a re-launch of the studio with new and vintage  equipment.

ALBERTO HAUSS started writing and producing with his former  production team MATIZ in the mid 80´s. Their first success was with latin dance acts like CHOCOLATE and  MYSTIC, house and soul legend OLIVER CHEATHAM and BEATS 4YOU. After the success of U96, DAS BOOT, he produced with Irish singer   Cora O´Donnovan the band FREUD for the US- market. Remixes followed for ARETHA FRANKLIN, STING/SCHOENER and  DIANA ROSS. Also song-writing for CULTURE BEAT, BOYTRONIC, DANA WINNER and ATC.
With Alberto's background of Latin influence music and European club style  he started the project TERRA DEL SOL in 2002 three albums followed. With new partner GLENN PAYNE he founded Tantajo Records UK. 

First release will be LA TIENDA mediterranean ambiance.
