More information:

Drawing from a wide range of tropical riddims and urban electro, Montreal-based producer POIRIERs powerful bass sounds blast 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 his dance-driven creativity, and air horn-worthy excitement. Signed to Ninja Tune, this is a man who just understands what works in the dance. Spanning all genres of global beats, POIRIER 's unique production has touched the hearts, booties, and dance floors across the globe. From his legendary Bounce Le Gros parties in Montreal (sellout events for two years running) to his new party, the bigger, better, bass-ier Karnival, POIRIER has been unstoppable in his ability to mash styles, expand minds, and move asses.
In the past few years POIRIER has been invited to virtually every Continent. Making his first trip to Africa this past year, he played Dakar, Senegal, during the Black World Festival, and Cape Town, South Africa for three nights, most notably at The Assembly. He has shared the stage with Modeselektor, Diplo, Kode9, Amon Tobin and Toddla T, as well as taken SXSW, Fabric London, Australias Big Day Out, the Montreux Jazz Festival, and Mexicos Cervantino Festival by storm.
When he's not globetrotting, POIRIER is working tirelessly in the studio. His signature skill of effortlessly linking disparate genres has led to worldwide collaborations with MCs and DJs from global hip hop, soca, grime, dancehall, booty bass, and much more. He has connected with electro sensations Crookers, dancehall veteran Burro Banton, the ever-eclectic dj/rupture, Londons tough gyal, Warrior Queen, Trinidadian soca master Mr. Slaughter, and longtime collaborators Face-T and MC Zulu. Remixes are also part of POIRIERs powerful repertoire. Tracks by Gotan Project, Tommie Sunshine, Pole, Bassnectar, Schlachthofbronx, and Yoav have all been given the POIRIER treatment.  Every POIRIER release presents a new, yet equally slammin, perspective. The critically-acclaimed Breakupdown (2005) and No Ground Under (2008) were warm ups for 2009s cavalcade of dancehall-soca-electro EPs. In addition to last years Running High, his recent productions include putting a Soca-fied twist on Wiz Khalifa's "Black and Yellow" (inspired by his recent trips to the mid-Atlantic).
