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. The album as a whole continues in that vein, going from ambient to more groove-driven pieces ("Calcutta") and back again. A hint of glitch even peeks into the darkness of "Vertical Extent. But, above all, a sedateness permeates these tracks.

Glitterbug’s debut album ‘Supershelter’ (Oct. With ‘Privilege’, Glitterbug takes the listener on a journey to explore new terrains, inverted and unconditional, drawing the full attention of every nerve and sense.

Sentiments aside, does Privilege succeed in its own right? It may not be a Selected Ambient Works, Vol. 2, say, and the danger of any truly long release lies in the potential of wearing out its welcome early. But Privilege does work at its best as loosely flowing travelogue, an understated progression that starts calmly with "Lionheart" and builds a calm propulsion as it goes.

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. Glitterbug's tracks are least interesting when they're most purely techno, although he has a strong handle on fundamentals. Cornered", for example, ratchets up from arpeggio to house bass to snares to chimes, all neat as a pin, and represents the album at its most functional and sterile.

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. The album as a whole continues in that vein, going from ambient to more groove-driven pieces ("Calcutta") and back again. A hint of glitch even peeks into the darkness of "Vertical Extent." But, above all, a sedateness permeates these tracks. These beats aren't meant for the dancefloor (though "After All" comes close for a while, as does the acid-touched "Blast"), but rather as a mood-enhancer. "Confront," for instance, has some steady breaks that keeps under the radar, while "Pink Sparks (Cave Edit)" maintains a 4/4 beneath its plaintive tones. On the second disc, "Waves" starts deep undertow to contrast the drippy tones on the surface, while "Float" does precisely that. The beats make an appearance back on "Cornered," and the wobbliness of "Slurred Thinking" gradually sharpen over the length of the track. "So Could We" shakes things up by presenting a straightforward piano composition, while "Transitions" brings in some reggae off-beat touches, and "Over Water" goes for dub techno. And "Walk Me" ends the album on a sweet note. A fascinating journey, even if nothing really rises above the surface.
