Montreal DJ / Producer Ghislain Poirier’s productions, in particular those on his latest release for Ninja Tunes ‘No Ground Under’ betray a keen ear for big dutty tunes from all over the world. Anyone who has been to his club night Bounce Le Gros, where he drops a mix of global Hip hop, Grime, Bali beats, Booty bass, Crunk, Baltimore and more, may lay testament to that, but for those who haven’t comes his brand new mix Cosmopolitan Bass. A journey round the world from the comfort of your own private dance floor taking in artists from Montréal, Guadeloupe, Martinique, Jamaïca, Sweden, France, Burkina Faso, South Africa, Haïti, Barbados, Trinidad, UK, Senegal, etc.
It’s not always easy to get heads to open up enough to take in the sights and sounds of Global goodness but Ghislain has the right kinda bass to bind it all and also the right attitude to see it through.
“it's not easy playing that music. But, fuck, I like it ! So I just imposed it to the people and it's working pretty good”
