Ghibli returns with his strongest album yet. Rare Pleasures is the culmination of a desperate trial in reinventing house music. On this outting Thomas Michael has mastered the injunction to dance by finding ideal tempos, daisy chaining all the right soul samples, and leaving just enough of the heart rending vocal utterances intact to carry you from the realm of fun dance music to the anything-is-possible dream theatre vibration. Electronic enthusiasts must not sleep on this record. Catch Thomas Michael aka Ghibli live tonight at Wunderbar for the release of his all new record. It is out on OLD UGLY today as a free download from here. Godspeed!
