OUT NOW – SUN GLITTERS ‘HAPPY WALKING’ [SINGLE]

OUT NOW – SUN GLITTERS ‘HAPPY WALKING’ [SINGLE]

Sun Glitters‘ second single from the upcoming new album LO-FI-LO-VE is out now. Happy Walking is available for stream or download via all digital music platforms. Click here to listen on Spotify or stream below.

LO-FI-LO-VE will be released on Nov. 16, 2018 via Future Archive Recordings. You can pre-order the new album here and receive an immediate download of 3 songs, including the latest single.

_____________________________________________________________

The acclaimed Luxembourg-based producer Victor Ferreira (aka Sun Glitters) returns with a new full-length album LO-FI-LO-VE this fall, a follow-up to his 2017 retro-futuristic visual album It Will Be Forever.

Since arriving in 2011—at the crest of an era overflowing with blissful synth projects—Ferreira has earned a loyal following through consistent output, collaboration, worldwide tours, and festival appearances. With remixes for Purity Ring, Slow Magic, Blue Foundation and numerous others, and live support for the likes of Moderat, Son Lux and Gold Panda, Ferreira has quickly left a mark on the electronic music scene. Over the years, he has received glowing coverage from Dazed & Confused, BBC, Resident Advisor, Earmilk, XLR8R, Pitchfork, The Guardian, VICE, and a bevy of other trend setting music outlets.

LO-FI-LO-VE sees Ferreira taking another new creative step in his career as a music producer, video director, and graphic design artist. All three are essential to Sun Glitters’ raison d’être, and with LO-FI-LO-VEFerreira is once again pushing his artistic curiosity to the limit. Unbothered by the prospect of change, Ferreira urges his listeners and viewers to keep an open mind and shift focus. While It Will Be Forever offered a closer look into the remarkable and unremarkable everyday moments—along with a subtle existential message underneath the accompanying music and videos—LO-FI-LO-VE sends a heartfelt and emotive pulse directly into the soul. From start to finish, Ferreira manages to arouse those most human of emotions on his new album: joy, pain, remembering, forgetting, loss, and of course, love. The 13 tracks on LO-FI-LO-VE are an exploration of these feelings; they are gentle and ethereal, but also focused and honest. There is no pretense here, especially that everything is always fine. It is not. As the track 6 title suggests, It’s Almost Perfectly — almost, but not quite. The soul’s journey is as bleak as it is beautiful, and for 47 minutes, LO-FI-LO-VE attempts to capture that enigmatic energy.

LO-FI-LO-VE officially releases on Nov. 16, 2018 via Future Archive Recordings.

Track Listing:

01. All I Need
02. The Unexpected
03. Secrets (feat. Drop The Gun)  [IMMEDIATE DOWNLOAD WITH ALBUM PRE-ORDERS]
04. Little Pause To Breathe
05. No Time To Waste
06. It’s Almost Perfectly
07. Milk Crisis

Tonight is Little People’s first release since 2015.

He has since gained cult status, with his double LPs sometimes fetching up to $300 on Discogs. He has since toured extensively in North America with artists such as Odesza, Emancipator, Bonobo, Blockhead, and Yppah.

OUT NOW – CNJR ‘HIVE MIND’

The debut release from CNJR is now available on all digital music platforms. Click here to listen/buy or stream below.

_____________________________________________________________

We are super excited to unveil the synth-driven queer artist CNJR and his initial offering Hive Mind, featuring four ominous and cinematic tracks.

The full EP was preceded by the single Ansible along with two remix versions by veteran electronic producers Sun Glitters and Yppah (Ninja Tune). Psychedelic, dark, ominous but with a touch of hope, and exploring the complexity of being human, Hive Mind strings listeners on through a nuanced range of emotional palettes.

CNJR is a queer artist and nomadic project fusing retro synthesizers and dark cinematic science fiction themes with a wide variety of musical influences. Founded in the rainy Pacific Northwest, and soon to be heading into the mountains of central Mexico, CNJR wanders intently creating music meant to take listeners on a journey.

CNJR (kon-jer) (verb): Weaving the melancholic struggle in our discontent dreams.

Track Listing:

01. Multiverse
02. Ansible
03. Outworlder
04. Cryostasis

OUT NOW – ‘HERMIT KINGDOM: REMIXES’

OUT NOW – HERMIT KINGDOM: REMIXES

We are very happy to present the new release from Blockhead, Yppah and Arms and Sleepers, a joint remix EP in conjunction with their current 33-date North American tour. Hermit Kingdom: Remixes is available for stream or download via all digital music platforms. Click here to listen/buy or stream below.

_____________________________________________________________

The acclaimed NYC producer Blockhead is teaming up with Long Beach’s Yppah and Boston’s Arms and Sleepers for a full North American tour this fall. To celebrate the occasion, Future Archive Recordings is thrilled to present a joint release between the three artists titled Hermit Kingdom: Remixes. With each artist remixing one track from the other two artists, this 6-song EP will offer an eclectic mix of reenvisioned material, exploring the electronic music spectrum without restraint. Blending hip-hop, shoegaze, jazz, downtempo, and psychedelic influences, among others, Hermit Kingdom: Remixes manages to stand as a cohesive whole rather than as just another collection of remixes. While there are obvious common threads among the three artists, each brings a unique perspective on electronic music that shines in conjunction with the original material being remixed.
