GET MAD GET CRAZY

in more uplifting news, Ghislain Poirier unveiled a new video for his Soca EP (which I describe in my Mondomix top 10). Directed by Gabriel Poirier-Galarneau, this video is composed of over 12,000 still shots of Montreal. I love the silent airhorn moment, although the entire video is impressive, great narrative & visual execution. City portrait on fast fwd, tropical bounce cut with snow-covered streets:

THE LEAK STARTS HERE

“Doing experimental music is kind of easy. Doing something more joyful is harder.” – Ghislain Poirier

2 weeks from now, Ghis will stop by my radio show while on tour; until then, here’s leaked heat from his brand-new bootleg CD: Bounce Le Remix vol. 3!

Ghislain Poirier – Lil Mama refixxx (320kbps)

of special interest on vol. 3 are some insane soca refixes, although this jam takes the Lip Gloss acapella and adds a riddim as minimal as the original — which necessitates serious focus since the original was just a compressed, brash beat. Ersatz steel drum massive, STAND TALL.
