Dust, the producer's fourth full-length, will land via Gold Panda's label in June.
"It’s not by chance that Dust is being released on Gold Panda's [Notown] label," says Glitterbug, real name Till Rohmann. The Berlin-based artist says the record is inspired by Gold Panda's 2013 LP, Half Of Where You Live.
"It picks up the pieces from that record's celebration of modern urbanity and manmade things," he says. "Dust takes this notion a step further and explores the urban shadows of the forgotten, the stories of our cities that remain untold, past landscapes that evaporated and memories left behind over time. It's about memories, traces of things and people that were, urban subtexts and long gone landscapes and the life that inhibited these places."
He adds: "I gave the first tracks, among them "Apparition" and "Far Far Light," to Gold Panda because I wasn't really sure what to make of it. While waiting though I realised that I'd just started to walk my first baby steps with a new album." The LP was recorded at Rohmann's studio in Berlin using a mix of analogue gear, including a 35-year-old Yamaha CS15, alongside newer digital technology.
