commonly found lurking around l.i.e.s.. technicolour and w.t. records. florian kupfer has plenty of credentials in the noisier end of the hardware house and techno scene. so it makes perfect sense to find him sidling up to valcron video in collaborative moder with torn hawk. the results are predictably excellent. from the gnarled emotional wrangles of -fake blood to the blown out ambience of hungry for candy. sweet tooth comes on like a dishevelled club workout. and then manipulation rounds the record off with a tongue in cheek spoken word and ambience piece that packs some serious music underneath the irreverent chit chat.
