about

German Berlin-based artist, producer and DJ Florian Kupfer returns to the fold for a double volley of raw, elusive DIY club music on new 12” single ‘About U’, alongside a full-length foray into hypnotic, minimalist
analogue electronics on ‘Lifetrax II’, the sequel to his 2013 debut release.

Kupfer realizes a full-circle culmination of the kinetic, roughly refined yet stylistically diverse sensibilities he showcased on his seminal debut, and on subsequent releases for L.I.E.S. Records and Ninja Tune imprint Technicolour.
Now landing on Ediciones Capablanca, Kupfer reasserts where he’s been, and conveys where he’s at, forging aqueous, hazy manoeuvres of crisp breaks, fragmentary inflected vocals, and heavily filtered FX on ‘About U’. Here, locked, cyclical scuffles of broad low-end and fizzing percussion
emerge and disperse, reflecting the exhilaration and enervation of an adventurous late-night session, if soundtracked by Rezzett, Theo Parrish and some narcotized edit of Drake.
For the flip ‘Replication’, Kupfer turns in a distressed dose of brusque, jack-heavy techno, evoking sinister scenes of pursuit, paranoia, and
voyeurism, and recalling L.I.E.S. labelmates like Delroy Edwards and Traxx. An impactful reset from a truly original operator, ‘About U’ signals an emphatic new chapter in Kupfer’s trajectory, elevated further by the
cryptic, longform movements and dilations of ‘Lifetrax II’.
