|MH-293 Sun Glitters - Scattered Into Light
Scattered Into Light is the Mush debut from the Luxembourg based electronic act, Sun Glitters. The eleven-track album remains true to the glitchy r&b and deep tech-house sound that has blasted Sun Glitters into the consciousness of electronic music fans over the last two years. Stuttering beats and wobbling synths are soft-focused through a sun-bleached lens in a way that will appeal to synth-pop, ambient, and dustup fans in equal measure. Scattered Into Light is the first Sun Glitters release to completely integrate a vocalist, as Italian ingenue Sara Cappai lends her talents to over half the tracks. The result is awash with star-gazing melodies, bubbly bass, and textured beats that give equal nod to house and hip-hop. Scattered Into Light is an wonderful release and makes a compelling case for Sun Glitters as a refreshing new artist.

|Sun Glitters is the alias of Luxembourg's Victor Ferreira, who has carved out a niche for himself in the post-dubstep and chillwave micro-genres with light-filled, airy productions combining neo-shoegaze vocals and pitch-bent R 'n' B melodies with complex, glitch-filled beats. On his debut for Mush Records, home at one time or another to the likes of cLOUDDEAD, Thavius Beck and Bibio, he proves why his studied take on this sometimes blandly chilled genre is head and shoulders above his peers.
Sara Cappai's singing anchors the record, pulled into dream-like choral shapes by Ferreira. The beats are suffused with heavenly static, chopped into polyrhythmic patterns that nod to early Anticon, classic Warp, and Tri-Angle's witchy take on R 'n' B, while maintaining a unique identity all their own; on an exquisite acoustic closer, beats are constructed by rubbing coins together. Minimal in places, mind-expanding in others, this is an impressive, richly-textured album from a singular talent. - The Skinny
