You may not know Florian Kupfer, another German producer residing in Berlin. What differentiates him from the pack? Well, his tracks are crafted from one-take hardware jams; he has recorded for labels like L.I.E.S, Rush Hour’s ‘No Label' subsidiary, Ninja Tunes singles label Technicolor and Willie Burns' WT Records; he used to be in a choir. Seriously.
He plays in London for Loose Lips on April 8th – they told Ticket Tannoy: “We love Florian Kupfer because of how he manages to tie what are often quite diverse productions into one single image, from his heavily saturated techno to his Sade edits that pull on heartstrings. His DJ sets are really intriguing - expect cross-genre exploration from techno to spoken word and everything in between.”
Kupfer is joined at Loose Lips by Silvestre known for slowed down, lo-fi jams; Scald, an experimental duo (violin & machines) and UK techno-pushers Manni Dee and Nick Dunton.
His first EP Lifetrax was an instant classic – here are our top Florian Kupfer picks:
