Sun Glitters "Only You"

Luxembourg producer Sun Glitters (a.k.a. Victor Ferreira) uses boundless reverb and compression to create texture-heavy beats with wistful, phantom vocals, and "Only You"—a cut from his forthcoming Scattered Into Light LP (out on November 26 via Mush)—continues in that unassuming direction. The piece builds on a crackled, prismatic synth and leisurely hip-hop rhythm until Italian siren Sara Cappai (of dream-pop outfit Diverting Duo) starts reciting the song title like a hypnotic haiku. Ferreira manages to unearth an elusive sweet spot left in the wake of chillwave and LA's instrumental beat scene.
