punks are back! after a stunning debut in 2017 these guys are returning with new material. this record was influenced by the latest events connected with governmental issues with russian club culture - raids, shutdowns of clubs and major festivals. damage was inflicted on our beloved clubs and festivals such as outline, arma17, rabitza. we admire our neighbors who fought for their houses and managed to protect them: ukrainian closer, british fabric and georgian bassiani.
this is a message about a sincere wish to save equality and independence. there’s no place for political games in our cultural life. only freedom matters.

florian kupfer, after a string of prestigious releases on ron morelli’s l.i.e.s. and russian torrent versions imprints, willie burns w.t. records, rush hour and ninja tune’s technicolour sub-label (lest not forget that white label sade bootleg), returns with a three track ep on private persons.
this 12 inch tells us the story of the beginning of florian’s career - his travels, dreams and of course love. title track “post present”, recorded for the first time five years ago get’s its first cut into wax. eerie, other-worldly voices reach over a kicking, distinctively kupfer-esque rhythm track. “i can’t love life without u” is a dub drive through retro-futuristic heartbreak and “Л,,,ю,,,б,,,о,,,в,,,ь,,,” an ambient tip into the subconscious.
