Poirier: Show Preview 

Wednesday, May 11 2011

Montreal's Poirier is a man from often-cold climes who creates blisteringly hot dance music. The tropical bass ambassador's tracks blend bubbly electronic rhythms with Afro-Caribbean percussion and Jamaican-style toasts. Like Diplo, Poirier hypes the crowd with sets that leapfrog from booty bass to soca, grime to ragga — a panglobal urban mélange perfected at his legendary Bounce Le Gros parties in Montreal. 2010's Running High on Ninja Tune saw Poirier showcase exciting dub-bass hybrids alongside electro-reggae tracks featuring MCs Face-T and Zulu.
