Other Info
Signed to Ninja Tune, producer/DJ Poirier is known to push the bass in many directions ranging from digital dancehall, nova soca and electronic riddims. He’s an alchemist specialized in melting many styles down, mixing them and producing some of the most addictive bass-heavy riddims around. A master in the art of making people move in his DJ sets, Poirier mixes music that flows effortlessly from dancehall, dubstep, global urban beats, electro, soca and much more. It's no surprise that he's shared the stage with Modeselektor, Diplo, Kode9, Amon Tobin and Toddla T, as well as taken SXSW, Fabric London, Australia's Big Day Out, the Montreux Jazz Festival, and Mexico's Cervantino Festival by storm.

Remixes are part of Poirier's powerful repertoire, and he knows just how to pick apart a song and put it back together bigger and heavier than before. Poirier has become renowned globally for his bass slammin remixes that continue to further solidify his title as “king of the bounce”. He has remixed tracks for UK grime/hip hop sensation Lady Sovereign (Def Jam), Bassnectar, Pole, Buck 65, The Editors, Champion, all to much critical acclaim and garnering him attention from publications such as pitchforkmedia.com , The Wire and XLR8R Magazine. Giving the massive what it wants, yet providing a musical education in what it needs, Poirier is a producer and DJ who has no boundaries except, perhaps, the rule that it's gotta have bass, and it's got to bounce. With this philosophy, Poirier will keep the dance rammed.
