I IMAGINE Poirier’s gigs shake more booty than a pirate with Parkinsons.
Although Canadian, the Montreal electro dancehall producer’s sound on Running High is more evocative of the Caribbean, with fast paced tracks like Coco Drunk and Warehouse impossible not to move to.
The only problem with is the beat and bleep and bassline riddims are all too computerised and clearcut - from time to time something is needed to blur the edges.
Luckily the guest vocalists prove this point and solve it, with the tracks with contributions from the likes of Burro Banton, Face-T and the improbably-deep voiced MC Zulu breaking up the tracklisting.
Poirier’s stock should be running high on this form.
