The newest addition to the already classic Ninja Tune line-up, Montreal’s Ghislain Poirier is obsessed with big, dirty beats, an affliction that causes him create some of the most out of control ragga style riddims, and deconstructed abstract hip-hop to date.
In the past Poirier has collaborated with MC’s and DJ’s from across the globe, working with NYC’s resident Large cats MC Beans (Warp) and DJ Rupture (Tigerbeat6), as well as Parisian heavy weights TTC (Big Dada) and London’s Lotek Hi-Fi (Big Dada) amongst others.
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. A full length LP on Ninja Tune records, ‘No Ground Under’, is on its way.
