Poirier, Jet Lag (via Aritzia): Montreal’s Ghislain Poirier, or simply Poirier, is known the world over for shaking bassbins and borders via his original tunes, remixes, DJ sets and mixes like this tropical bad boy right here. This new Jet Lag mix was cooked up for Aritzia, a womens clothing boutique that’s also had a hand in bringing you some top notch DJ mixes on the side. Poirier, who’s signed to Ninja Tune Records and clearly has a wide appreciation for music, approached this mix with signature style, connecting the dots between a mixed bag of genres from collaborators and artists around the world. Dancehall, UK funky, soca, grime and huge sleepers like this work their way into this bubbling uptempo mix. Download, stream and more info here.
