Sun Glitters - Arkham, Shanghai


We're typically shrouded in darkness at Arkham. Buried deep in the cave. Owning night. But it's time we sliced through that night with a streak of light. So on November 28th, Arkham's dance floor is going to be sundrenched, bathed in the warm rays of Luxembourg musician, Victor Ferreira.

Ferreira operates under the moniker, Sun Glitters, composing deep, ruminative techno-ballads that shimmer with revelation and optimism. His style calls to mind peers such as Boards of Canada, Jon Hopkins and Gold Panda with songs that clatter, clank, undulate and hypnotize as they lift you skyward. Synths abound while clean, laid-back beats preside. Most tracks are decorated with wispy female vocals that conjure daydreams and carry that soft, pusling hum of instant nostalgia.

Sun Glitters has an LP, Everything Could Be Fine, and a whole litany of EP's, singles, and remixes. He's played festivals and stages all over Europe and has been receiving coverage from Dazed & Confused, BBC, Resident Advisor, Earmilk, XLR8R, Pitchfork and many other trend setting music outlets.

So come enjoy some sonic therapy and twist along as Sun Glitters' sound refracts through the crowd. We'll be there waiting for you.
