“Till Rohmann, the German producer who records austere, slowly shifting techno as Glitterbug, clearly understands that patience is a virtue. His compositions unfurl at glacial paces, like tulips blooming in real time, and reward listeners who are willing to stick around. “1st of July,” the first single cut from his upcoming fourth studio album Dust, is no exception: true to its title, it swells from grey morning warmth to a thick, sticky heat, courtesy of humid, billowing synths. Meteorological accuracy isn’t exactly a standard characteristic of electronic music, but here it’s a testament to Rohmann’s deft touch with pace and structure; this is less a piece of minimal techno than a micro-scale model of hot, wet summer days on the horizon.” Jamieson Cox
