Glitterbug is a composer, producer, DJ, artist and curator; standing tall in all musical genres he puts his fingers on. Be it deep techno, remixing, ambient works, writing music for films or audio-visual installations, his musical language always resonates with a score-like, visual approach.
Glitterbug draws from the manifold of his social and global experiences to bring substantial content to his delicate sounds. With masterful production and greatest attention to broadened frequency and smallest detail, he has managed to create unique audio landscapes; sonic experiences, emotive and powerful.
It’s his unique, heartfelt and artistic approach to club music that won him international praise, breaking definitions and expanding borders; His live-sets are an analogue prodigious fest; profuse sounds envelop the dance-floor, defined and intense, building moments of abyssal melancholia and points of ecstatic rapture. His long-established collaboration with Israeli visual artist Ronni Shendar, has become an indivisible element of his performance; creating a cinematic, stirring and encompassing experience.
His music and remixes have been released on internationally acclaimed labels such as Ware, Wolfskuil, Mule, Notown, Ghostly, False-Industries, Ki, Obsolete Components, and of course his own c.sides label.
Rene Passet of Dutch DJ Broadcast Magazine crowned Glitterbug as “Germany’s best kept techno secret”, MCD France titled him”The Derek Jarman of Minimal Techno”. Germany’s leading recording magazine ‘Keys’ gave his debut album a perfect 10/10 for both musical content and sound production. Intro Magazine said of his last album ‘Privilege’ that it is “destined for nothing less than eternity” and Germany’s De:Bug Magazine wrote “when one listens to Glitterbug’s music, it feels like listening to a better world, a utopia without words”.
