This release is 2019 coming full circle. Two B-sides from Fazer and Popp, whose albums we released last year, share a 10" dubplate with a letter-pressed sleeve.
Gahu Dub by Fazer is a laid-back psychedelic jam based on the recreational Gahu dance of the Ewe people from Togo and Ghana.

Written, Produced and Mixed by Fazer & Simon Popp
Mastered by Christoph Stickel at CS-Mastering

    Coming from different musical backgrounds ranging from bebop to electronic, Fazer met while studying jazz at the Academy for Music and Theatre in Munich. The German city has a rich history of improvised music; home to labels ECM (Keith Jarrett, Chick Corea, the Art Ensemble of Chicago, Steve Reich) and Enja (Archie Shepp, Eric Dolphy, Freddie Hubbard, Elvin Jones) and Krautrock icons Embryo. Today much of the scene in Munich revolves around Radio 80000, an online community radio station located in the east of the city. There, dedicated diggers like Karl Hector (Now-Again) or Marvin & Valentino of Public Possession are doing regular shows and it’s this diversity that drives the band’s DNA.

  • Popp


    Raised on an old farm in rural Bavaria, Simon Popp started playing the drums at the age of 9. During his studies at the Academy of Music and Theatre in Munich, he extensively studied music from countries like Ghana, Benin, India and Cuba where rhythm is central to culture.
