Mara is the debut album from the Munich-based jazz group Fazer. The young musicians
combine African and Latin rhythms with dubby basslines and melancholic melodies.
The unusual lineup with two drummers (Simon Popp, Sebastian Wolfgruber), bass (Martin
Brugger), guitar (Paul Brändle), and trumpet (Matthias Lindermayr) leaves an open 
space for unfettered improvisation. Through the concept of repetition and finely
measured dynamics, Fazer creates a drawing energy that can be felt directly at their
live shows and has been captured perfectly on Mara. 180 gram vinyl; Includes download

        03.     White Sedan (Werkha Remix)

The German jazz quintet Fazer presents "White Sedan" with two remixes by Glenn Astro
& Hodini and Werkha. The original track builds on a traditional Latin rhythm that is
closely tied to dance. This is a special turn for an eclectic DJ-set.
FAZER   003     ABSTAND                 OPEK                            12"     11.2018

Abstand is a duo project by Martin Brugger and Simon Popp, both members of the Munich
-based jazz group Fazer. On their debut 12", Opek they provide off-kilter polyrhythmic
percussion psychedelia, layering live and unedited drum tracks blended with sparse
electronics that add a subtle Middle Eastern tint. On the B side is a remix by Stefan
Schwander aka Harmonious Thelonious. The Salon des Amateurs denizen serves up a
pulsating and more club-leaning take, showing why he can always be trusted with
turning live percussion into bold, hypnotic jams for the perceptive club-goer.
