We speak with the Luxembourg beatmaker before the release of his debut album this month
Luxembourg-based beatmaker Sun Glitters' music is the kind of stuff that the more you listen to it, the more you hear. Having mastered that deep, down tempo, multi layered sound and collected a strong fanbase in the process, Sun Glitters is about to embark on a lengthy tour of Europe. Previously describing his songs as “an ocean of lush melodies” and “ghostly digi-diva choirs”, his fantastical audio collages have seen him compared to artists such as Balam Acab.
Not one to shy away from hard work and new creative ventures Sun Glitters most recent projects include droping a collaborative E.P with Bermuda Bonnie and LA’s Steffaloo and working with the likes of Blackbird Blackbird and Niva. While fans wait with baited breath for the debut release 'Everything Could Be Fine', Sun Glitters has put out the haunting single 'The Wind Caresses Her Hair' which should definitely keep our ears occupied (for the time being anyway!).
