Disparate sounds flow together on Poirier’s Migration

artworks-000145210069-yxz3wj-t500x500Canadian producer Poirier isn’t afraid of sonic experimentation. This is clear after listening to his new album Migration, an eleven track set with a global audio landscape. He moves effortlessly from up-tempo soca on Keep It Rolling over digital reggae on Serena to naked dancehall on Jump.

Migration is a mix of live instrumentation and computerized sounds. It draws influences from all over the world and the focal point is the Caribbean with heavy bass and lively energy.

All different styles and guest artists – including long-time collaborator Face-T, the eclectic Dubmatix and dancehall veteran Red Fox – flow gently together creating a tropical, cinematic and forward-thinking album for an international audience.
