Late nights, restless thoughts, bursting emotions—Florian Kupfer’s music evokes something familiar yet elusive, personal yet universal, a hearbeat heard through endless spools of gently hissing tape.

Born in Wiesbaden, introduced to ’90s techno by his mother, educated in production via hip-hop and nudged by his great-grandparents to pursue his creative impulse, he spent
years bouncing around Germany before he met L.I.E.S. boss Ron Morelli DJing at the Robert Johnson in Offenbach, and a new relationship with music crystalized: “I was just standing in the room like, ‘What ??'” All previously gained perceptions of musical aesthetics have altered in that very moment.

Lifetrax, Kupfer’s first release was an instant classic upon its release in 2013, and its success brought him to Berlin, kicked off a flurry of deeply felt DJ gigs and led to follow-
up releases for L.I.E.S., Russian Torrent Versions and Willie Burns’ W.T. Records. With Burns, Kupfer has forged a musical collaboration, which so far has resulted in the release of an EP for Rush Hour offshoot No ‘Label’. Kupfer’s music remains a highly personal undertaking, his tracks still wrought from one-take hardware jams in his bedroom.
