Sun Glitters just dropped another one on the widening world of wonky, this time enlisting the help of electronic dudes Sleep Party People. It’s got that great Sun Glitters rattle and bass, and the SPP vox seem to be coming from the bottom of a pool of mercury, all moist and metallic and awesome. Listen below and go to his bandcamp to download it and a lot more.
I’m always stoked when Victor Ferreira comes through with a new Sun Glitters track, and this one has got me more hyped than usual. The bass churns powerfully, heartbeat style, and again his samples are spot on, joining with each other as seamlessly as the saturated frames in the eventide video created by Ferreira himself. Besides Sun Glitters’ own style, he gets some help on the vox from Stockholmers Niva & Charlee that take it into some other, parallel realm of awesomeness. It’s exactly what I wanted when I saw those three names all together on one track, head to his bandcamp to name your price for the mp3.
More sickness from Sun Glitters, a follow-friday freebee (hit him up @sunglitters). This time around we’re getting that post-dub wetness, with a little splash of dreampop from the sample. Gotta love it. Check more from Sun Glitters, and don’t forget about the remix tape Everything Could Be Remodeled And That’s Fine! Shit is solid.
It’s great when artists you like produce new material frequently, and it’s even better when you can tell they’re still giving each track everything they’ve got. Case and point: Sun Glitters‘ new single “things are…” The things I noticed first about this track were the sustained, zippery bass notes similar to those found in his earlier tracks “outside (reprise)” and “beside me,” from his debut LP everything could be fine; I know I should be listening to this on my headphones, but the sounds are almost perfect even coming through my “decent” laptop speakers. Here Victor Ferreira again shows off his pitch-shifting talent on the vocal tracks, swooping from the lowest lows to the highest highs and back again, all while maintaining his wonky stylings on the beat; in the end, it’s altogether calming.
You can listen to “things are…” below, but if you don’t want to rely on the cloud, Ferreira is asking a modest ONE American Dollar for the track at his bandcamp. I mean, I found a dew-covered dollar on the ground at 6 a.m. this very morning. Everything happens for a reason.
I don’t know if you’ve checked out our previous Sun Glitters posts, but you’ll probably like this even if you haven’t (you still should). The production of this album came to my attention via twitter, when I saw Teen Daze and Blackbird Blackbird mentioning some remixes to Sun Glitters‘ Victor Ferreira. Little did I know that UFΩLK Records would be releasing a SEVENTEEN track remix album featuring multiple remixes of 8/10 of everything could be fine‘s tracks by the likes of Teen Daze, Blackbird Blackbird, The Astroboy (soundcloud below), Space Ghost, Niva, and a ton of others. Each remodeling offers a different interpretation of the Sun Glitters sound; this album should have something for everyone. The album, released on April 25th, is available for five bones from the UFΩlk bandcamp, but they’ve also provided a handy and gracious “alternate link” for those of you without money or without pockets with which to hold money.

Sun Glitters - Feel It (Pinemarten Remix)
After a delay on the release due to some artwork related difficulties, Sun Glitters is back, this time with Steffaloo, who has already put in work with the likes of Blackbird Blackbird and Billy Comfort, along with plenty of her own work. On this EP, Steffaloo’s voice adds exactly what you want to the already complete sounds of Sun Glitters. Like ‘everything could be fine’ each of the three tracks here features a pulsing, not pounding, bass, draped in a flowing veil of electronic sounds; I guess you could call Steffaloo the sequins or glitter (sorry, I had to) on that veil. You can name your own price for the EP at the Sun Glitters bandcamp, and be sure to check out his other work.
Based in Luxembourg, Victor Ferreira aka Sun Glitters has been busy during the last two weeks, churning out both ‘everything could be fine’ (an 8-track LP) on the 11th and two additional songs ’felt asleep’ and ‘outside (reprise)’ on the 20th via his bandcamp. His website eloquently and accurately describes his sound as
an ocean of lush melodies, pitch-shifted vocal samples, ghostly digi-diva choirs, warm bass melodies driven by alternately dense and relaxing beatwork combinations between downtempo and wonky beats.
His samples are always on and he gets way nice with the bass throughout the entire album; the track with vocals is great too. Check out ‘find your way (see)’ from the album below, and give your email to download the other two tracks from bandcamp (you could also buy the album there).
