POIRIER is back with his latest riddim, this time self released on his website. The riddim features the likes of Boogat, Mr Ok and L’Xtrmst.Zen. Go get it right now as it’s the bees knees, this quote from the man himself sets it up perfectly.
“The basic idea behind Kidnap Riddim was to create a heavy, hypnotic and minimal beat that could stand side by side in the club with records by the likes of Lil Wayne, Drake or Rick Ross without losing any rush.”
The latest release in Senseless Records Synesthesia series sees a lot of people we really like team up. Walter Ego, Poirier, Face-T, Boogat and Lenkemz. So that’s grime, reggaeton, and dancehall all one one release. The myriad of styles on this EP isn’t a distraction just a collection of great music from a series of artists that we really like. You can download it on the 9th of July off their Bandcamp page.
Speaking of Canadian friends, Poirier is back with a new track with Haitian Mc Mr Ok. the song is part of the Kidnap Riddim Ep which is coming out this summer. If we remember correctly he teased this on EVR radio a couple of months ago. This track alongside the others will be an international affair as Boogat & Madhi, Set & Match, Kween G and L’Xtrmst.Zen all hop on this sparse yet incredibly intoxicating beat.
It’s been a while since we checked out what the Canadian fam are up to, so much so that we missed this video when it dropped last month. Boogat is back with the single for his new Ep, Pura Vida, which is out now on Masalacism. The bleeps, the chorus of Badman (it’s actual Bar Man but i like to think that calling you bartender badman gets your more liquor in your drink) and the pam pam sample make this a single not to be missed.
You may know Face T from being one of Poirier‘s frequent collaborators or from his hits like Wha la la Leng, Blazin, Enemies or his recent single Jumbo.He has been a constant presence in our sets so we are pleased to see him release his new album. The 13 track LP produced by Poirier and Scorpio B covers a mix of reggae, dancehall and uptempo electro bass. Our favourite track on the album is Hands Up Deh which reminds us of Bollywood meets french courtisan electro, which trust us is a great thing, topped off which Spanish rhyming from Boogat. The title track featuring Cutty Ranks, shows that Face T can hold his own alongside a legend on this dancehall riddim. You can listen to an album minimix below and as a treat you can download the A Tribe Called Red remix of Jumbo here.
The album is available to buy now on itunes.
The latest release from Poirier’s Also Records see Boogat ride over one of the most recognisable samples in dancehall, the intro breakdown fro Dawn Penn’s No No No. Combine that with some reggaeton and some dutty low bass it’s another hit from this fledgling record label. If you haven’t checked out Boogat and Poirier wowing the crowd at sonar earlier this month, please do as it is fantastic. You can buy the single over here.
Ps You should check out the Mixpak round up of Go Go Wine remixes. Not only is there the Joe Grime one but also Makala’s rather excellent version.
