Drawing from a wide range of tropical riddims and urban electro, the power of Montreal-based DJ/producer Poirier’s bass blasts through any flimsy attempt to classify his music. Pinpointing the bits and pieces of dancehall beats, soca energy and electronic intensity is futile in the face of Poirier’s dance-driven creativity and air horn-worthy excitement.
Having already released several EPs for Ninja Tune, Poirier has worked with the likes of Crookers, Burro Banton, Warrior Queen and MC Zulu and run the legendary Bounce Le Gros parties in his native Montreal.
Each of his releases presents a new, yet equally slammin’, perspective. Poirier’s first EP for Mixpak, Soca Road, is out now.
