We're keeping things rolling strong in March with a cross border mashout featuring special guest, Ghislain Poirier. Jumping down from Montreal on the mighty Ninja Tune banner, Ghislain comes correct with big, dirty beats and some of the most out-of-control ragga riddims and deconstructed abstract hip hop to date.
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), The Editors, Champion, Bassnectar, and Pierre Lapointe, which garnered much critical acclaim and significant attention from publications such as pitchforkmedia.com, RES Magzine and XLR8R, to name just a few. Flowing effortlessly from global hip hop, grime, Baile beats, Booty bass, crunk, Baltimore and much more GP brings hordes of Montrealers to his consistently sold out Bounce le Gros party month after month.
"Blazin'", the first single off his Ninja Tune debut has been blowing up the club circuit and has already been remixed by the likes of ModeSelektor, DJ C, Starkey and The Bug.
And of course, the SS crew will be coming through with fresh dubs and more exclusive previews of the Sub Swara debut album, dropping this spring!
