Glitterbug’s debut album ‘Supershelter’ (Oct. 2008) made huge waves across music critics, magazines and fans around the globe. His following EP ‘Dim Flares’ and remixes kept unraveling his musical surprises and an unmatched sound of an epic Glitterbug world. Privilege’ was produced partly in Glitterbug’s Cologne recording studio and partly on the road during his international performance tours in 2009 between the Arctic Circle, southern India, Israel, Europe and China (and everywhere in between). Fragments of field recordings he took in these places appear in many of the tracks, some are apparent, others very subtle.

Glitterbug's PRIVILEGE stretches over 2 CDs - and right from "Lionheart," he incites a feeling of calm with its long, sustained tones and piano chords, while "Swirl" brings in some percussion.

His second album, Privilege, is a double LP with 20 tracks that mostly hover in the six- to eight-minute range. That's well over two hours of enigmatic techno to digest, and it can't even be called diverse, at least on the surface.
