Poirier
Running High

ZEN154

Released 26/04/2010

Rhythms have been run, Soca systems have been sounded (not to mention air-horns), ceilings have been brought down, and now it's time for the man called Poirier (Pwa-ri-ay) to rewind and come again (selector that he is)...

A twelve month period has seen the release of three EP's, all showcasing very different (yet at the same time very coherent) sides of Poirier's production...from digi-dancehall bangers, to hyper Soca rhythms, to techno/Caribbean hybrids. That same time frame has also seen Poirier reaching to all parts of the globe to drop his signature "all things bass" sound on ever increasing crowds. Whether as a solo DJ or with one of his various M.C's by his side, he's murdered it in pretty much any place you can pronounce on a map, and along the way has cemented his status as one of the top names in an ever growing group of producers rocking dancefloors with a globally curated pastiche of sounds.

The culmination of those last twelve months manifested itself into his 7th full length (2nd for Ninja Tune)... the two disc 'Running High' album.

Disc 1 compiles the 3 EP's into album running order. Originally released in such a way as to focus on each facet of his production, these tracks are now compiled in such a way to show the ease with which it all meshes and to present within a new context; revisiting the tunes that smashed the floors, presenting them for the first time to the public at large. Don't, however, think of this solely as a collection of EP's, rather more like an album where the vinyl has been released early.

Disc 2 presents an alternate version. Taking elements from Disc 1 and presenting them as alternately voiced rhythms, remixes, and new tracks, it's both an audio companion and a statement/document of the scene that Poirier finds himself running in. Kicking off with a new tune featuring Warrior Queen (last seen on Ninja Tune on The Bug's 'London Zoo'), and followed by re-voiced rhythms with Canadian/Juno Award winning reggae sensation Mikey Dangerous, chart topping hit Erup's 'Click Mi Finger' meshed with the 'Untrust Rhythm' and the spanish flow of MC Boogat; remixes are provided by France's Douster, UK funky/ two step heavy hitter Sticky, UK sound-system Mungo's Hi-Fi, WILDLIFE!, Uproot Andy, Baobinga, Marflix, Maga Bo and Stereotyp, all rounded off with Poirier's remix of the Busy Signal hit 'Cool Baby'...
