It’s been a minute since we previously raved about Edmonton producer Ghibli, who released a pair of notable projects last year in 2011 and particularly Rare Pleasures. We’re now hearing the follow-up to the latter and it also serves as his final YouTube-sampling project.
Clubs is an aptly titled house music-filled romp, as it bursts with dance floor energy, tightly produced rhythms, and undeniable grooves. And while plenty of music for the glow stick crowd is repetitive and requires heavy amounts of drugs, Ghibli’s approach is one of pure composition, building and breaking apart tracks within one another. Just listen to “Envy 1” if you still need convincing.
