LSD FAZE TIME: Occupanther


We are super happy to present your our latest LSD FAZE TIME with munich-raised Martin Brugger aka Occupanther. After releasing his first electronic productions beginning of 2014 the jazz-bass student already made some waves with his first EP on Antime Music and gigs at Melt Festival, Berghain and for ARTE TV. His musical style can be compared to the likes of Jon Hopkins or Mount Kimbie even he explains that he’s trying to let collide the two main concepts of musical composition: breathing vs. heartbeat. Also don’t miss out on the amazing video for the first single from his recent ‘Chimera EP‘ (141 records) below.


My name is Martin Brugger but you might know me as Occupanther. I was born in Munich and grew up in Munich. When I was a child my idol was Sometree, because they fucking rock. When  I was 12, I started my first band. It was then when I realised that this is should be my job and decided to devote my life to music. Since then I learned and tried out a lot.

One of the best gigs I have been to was Team Me!. I loved the perfection and the energy.


Now I live in Munich with my twin brother. In my house you can find nowhere, cause I don’t have a house and my refrigerator is usually full with food, beverages. I can spend hours in the culinary department. One of my favorite places to visit is my balcony, because it’s always sunny there.

On weekdays I try to get up early and on weekends I usually don’t.

My favorite song at the moment is Daedelus – Onward. A film I watched lately and really liked was Trance by Danny Boyle. The last series I watched and loved was Family Guy (still).

I am very inspired by powerful quotes. My dream is to travel the world making music. My worst nightmare is waking up shaved.

I love my beard and hate shavers.

I am addicted to eating, I just cannot stop wondering about people who talk loudly to their pets on the metro.

I get totally fucked up when I can sleep out the next morning. The next day I need to get some serious Spezi.

Local Suicide reminds me of the good times.


Tomorrow I have to rehearse a lot. Next month I’m gonna play some shows and work on my next EP. Next year I’ll hopefully be playing live a lot. In 10 years I hope my beard has turned grey so I can give thoughtful advices.


If I wasn’t a dude, I would be a bear.

If my life was a Hollywood movie, Bill Murray would have the main role, because he kicks ass. If I could have sex with anyone, it would be Virgin Mary.

If I was a car, I would be a Saab. If I was an animal, I would be a bear. If I was a drug I would be weed. If I was an invention, I would be something you didn’t know you need. If I was an object, I would be a prism. If I could date myself, I‘d order champagne and let myself pay the bill.

If I could play with anyone it would be Jon Hopkins. I would like to collaborate with Jack Steadman.

If I had only one wish, it would be another wish (duh!).

I would never steal, because I got too much stuff already.


My word of advice to the reader would be to not to hang around in this Internet thing too much. It’s a real time muncher.
