The wonderful urban swing of Império Pacífico continues to pave the way for the new electronic expression made here. From the start, the organic approach with which Luan Bellussi and Pedro Tavares operate stands out. The refined melody contagiates the rhythms and every detail in an endless sensorial kaleidoscope – surprising and aligning the coordinates of body and mind. Pulsating and balmy, the duo’s music flows between memories of a digital Africa, echoes of bass music, and an identity that is, above all, proudly mestizo. The relatively frequent releases that are appearing give shape to this journey that will have a new chapter in 2023.
Clubs Hit brings a set of eight themes worthy of a late and unexpected summer sun. The lightness is real and you can feel it through the songs full of peripheral vision and refined instinct – towards other incredible worlds. A true constellation of sound that little by little gets into the skin of everyday life, a record that you listen to and submerge yourself in; a record that simply happens. Besides, Panda Bear, Rabu Mazda, Simão Bárcia and Noiva appear here as guests, widening the panorama of these landscapes – and the scope of the trip.
Back at ZDB, Império Pacífico are preparing to premiere these new compositions. Clubs Hit will have its echo in the near future, but everything should start here, tonight. Not to be missed. NA
