Sun Glitters

Sun Glitters is the alias of musician and producer Victor Ferreira, a downtempo artist from Luxembourg. His sound is an ocean of lush melodies, pitch-shifted vocal samples, ghostly choirs, warm bass melodies driven by alternately dense and relaxing beatwork combinations between downtempo and wonky beats. Everything Could Be Fine is Ferreria’s first release, and it’s a swirling melting pot of many different influences and textures. Sun Glitters displays a unique and rich sound that’s both genre defying and packed with emotion.

Beats are complemented wonderfully with eerie and beautiful vocal samples, rumbling bass and layered ambiance. Everything Could Be Fine is an excellent mix of the hazy ambiance found in artists like Tycho, the vocal samples of Swarms and the trippy vibes of Boards Of Canada. Hauntingly nostalgic female vocals peep in and out of the drunken beats in songs like Too Much To Lose and A Dragonfly In The City while synths and fat bass lines build structure to the music. Simply wonderful.

Sun Glitters is definitely a worthwhile addition for anyone who enjoys relaxing electronic or chillout music. You can get informed about Ferreira here.
