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), Les Georges Leningrad, Pulseprogramming and The Editors, all to much critical acclaim and garnering him attention from publications such as pitchforkmedia.com and XLR8R Magazine. Since then, Poirier has been throwing down his own successful monthly DJ night in Montreal, ‘BOUNCE LE GROS’. An evening that features what Poirier describes as “Bass and no attitude, Gros sound, Gros Beat, Gros Move, Bounce le Gross”. A master in the art of making people move, Poirier’s night of genre Mashing provides enough bass to fill the place, attracting a mixed crowd that appreciate his dirty style, tasty beats and eclectic flare. Spinning music that flows effortlessly from global hip hop, grime, Bali beats, Booty bass, crunk, Baltimore and much more is this DJ’s signature stamp, a sold out party month after month.
