After their 2016 dancefloor burner “Jump,” Poirier and Red Fox are pairing up once again for “Pull Up Dat” taken from Poirier’s new album “Soft Power.” Rooted in a dancehall style, “Pull Up Dat” is full of good vibes with Red Fox confidently leading the dance. Poirier brings a modern touch that relates to the 90’s dancehall scene. On the B-side, Patexx is all about delivering an uplifting message with the collaboration “Unity & Strength.” As Patexx says at the beginning of the song: “United we stand, divided we fall.” Then on the remix tip, young and upcoming producer SIM from Montréal flexes to new heights, turning “Pull Up Dat” into a set-ready banger.
With his first album dating back to 2001, Poirier is a prolific, creative and eclectic Canadian producer / musician with a 20 year journey of creating music. Constant in his albums and DJ performances is a desire to build bridges between different languages, communities, and cultures. His open, uninhibited musical mind means that his works bend boundaries, resulting in compositions that mix several styles and eras. He has now produced a total of 11 albums and many EPs with labels such as Ninja Tune, Nice Up Records and, more recently, Wonderwheel Recordings. Active in Montreal, his successful monthly dance party Qualité de Luxe is dedicated to African and Caribbean music, attracting crowds for over six years. Poirier is also the man behind Bounce le Gros and Karnival, parties with legendary status in Montreal nightlife history.
“Pull Up Dat” is available digitally as a single pack and as a limited edition 7” vinyl record on September 25th, 2020.
