Almost nine months after the release of Glitterbug’s last album, Dust, some Glitterbug friends gathered to provide their interpretations of ‘Far Far Light’, one of the stand out tracks of the album.
Estroe, Biblo and Extrawelt each contribute their own interpretation of the mood and imagery of this track.
The original version of Glitterbug's ‘Far Far Light’ settles in a rather solemn mood, presenting the listener with deep bass lines, wet reverb and sparse arpeggios. ‘Far Far Light’ is a hypnotic, dark and spellbinding journey across nightly streets and forgotten urban landscapes.
Extrawelt (of Cocoon and Border Community, to name just a few) fill raves and large scale clubs and festivals internationally, and that is for a good reason. Their interpretation of ‘Far Far Light’ unstoppably creeps into the raver’s heart, soul and body, making the already dense original even denser, and adding an ever evolving, powerful, excessive atmosphere that keeps on climbing and building until the very last chord.
Estroe is no foreigner to the techno and electronica circuit either. The Dutch DJ and Producer, with a prolific history in both of her fields, has been a dear friend of c.sides
and Glitterbug for many years. Her unique moods and the depth of her production, as well as the emotionality in her DJ sets and music she produces, is something that speaks a mutual language and similar musical vocabulary. Her remix creates a version of ‘Far Far Light’ that floats into a melancholic and loving universe.
newest family member from Istanbul, Biblo, who just released her last album, ‘Absence’, on the c.sides
imprint, takes all the heaviness of the original track and adds her own sonic pallet, creating a dark and earth shattering interpretation of ‘Far Far Light’. Witch House meets deep dub techno and eerie vocals meet Glitterbug. Prepare for a journey far down below.
We're thrilled to expand the c.sides
family of artists with this release (thank you!) and we're looking forward to share more new music and exciting news with you soon.
