Blackbird Blackbird - Keep It Up (Sun Glitters Remix)

Why do we like this?
We've covered a few Sun Glitters tracks before, so I'm surprised this Blackbird Blackbird remix he just released hasn't been immediately snapped up. It's electronic pop with glitch thrown in.

Sun Glitters falls under the new niche of experimental electronic - chopped up beatwork that sounds kinda like shoegaze, but more noisy. Noise-gaze. It's the new moniker of Victor Ferreira, formerly known as Sug(r)cane. Victor used to make lots of different genres of music under that name, but now he specializes in the dark, dream pop the blogosphere likes to call chillwave.

As Paul Lester at The Guardian put it, Victor has this ability to make you feel "a distractingly earthy, human intrusion in an otherwise immaculately ethereal set." It's like he dips spooky, cut vocal samples into a soup of downtempo. Soundclouders like to use the words atmospheric, blissful. By his own description:

"Sun Glitters sound is 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."

Let's keep it simple - it's gorgeous noise.

You can find Victor on Twitter and Tumblr.
