Hear what else is in his bag when Poirier joins DJ Sep and crew for Dub Mission on Sunday, May 15, at Elbo Room. 9 p.m., $10; www.elbo.com.
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.
