"A dancefloor experience, a fusion of club styles and post-bop innovation made for gripping listening." ~ Clash Magazine⁠

"Fazer’s sound would verge on easy listening if the rich rhythm and inspired solos didn’t make their first album unmissable." ~ Quest.tv

Fans of Fazer include techno selector Seth Troxler, and it’s success emboldened the Munich group to look further afield on their follow up. As well as Quincy Jones, Gilles Peterson, OYE recordstore, BBE Music⁠ ⁠and more⁠…

Attracted by the city’s open-minded musical attitude and it’s incredible jazz scene, the material was written during some rare down-time in their touring schedule.

In Munich, the place from which historic labels such as ECM, Act and Enja radiate, “there is a lack of jazz venues for young people,” says Marin Brugger. “It’s hard to train an audience to like jazz here. But we have no doubt it’s a very good music scene. One of its most important nerve centers is a web radio station I participate in called Radio 80 000.” Brugger is a morning presenter and active member, adding that the project has become “a rallying point and a network in Munich. It’s a melting pot of different genres, from electronics and jazz to dub and others. I believe that this is where it’s at!” 

Fazer’s next album is due soon on a prestigious German based label. More to be revealed soon.
