Podcast 164: Poirier

There's not a lot more we can say about Montreal's Poirier. Over the years, we've picked his brain for studio tips, let him show us around his hometown, documented his role in the lazer bass scene (side note: whatever happened to that?), and posted approximately 87 of his tracks in our downloads section. Plainly said, we like the guy, so now that we're spending the month of October helping the Ninja Tune label celebrate its 20th anniversary, Poirier was an easy choice to kick off our series of special Ninja Tune podcasts. Pulling solely from the Ninja Tune and Big Dada vaults, he's put together this Dubs for Ninjas mix that's heavy on the bass and the dutty vibes. Give it a listen, and check back every Thursday in October for new Ninja Tune podcasts. Also, make sure to take a look at XLR8R's Ninja Tune XX microsite for more exclusive content, Ninja Tune XX event info, and plenty of other celebratory goodies.

Wow what a coincidence he did this podcast. Just yesterday I was looking thru my old posts on a forum for a picture and saw a post where I said I was going to see him with daedelus but I didn't end up going

lazer bass was a 100 times more awesome a name than wonky or any other shit people came up with. do the right thing as a magazine and bring it back, if only because it was at least funny.

also this mix is h33t
