Ghislain Poirier: Bastard Bass Mix

ghislainpoirier-ngu.jpgMontreal's Ghislain Poirier, last seen around here on my own memekast mix mk001, has announced his Ninjatune debut, and dropped a serious promo mix to get us ready.

The mix is called Bastard Bass, and with it Poirier continues his relentless, electro-fueled assault on the border walls between dancehall, hip-hop, soca, grime, and any others that get in his way. One needs only check out his body of work to know these boundaries don't stand a chance.

Doped Up

sibot-in-with-the-old.jpgWord recently trickled down to me from somewhere along the ant trail about a producer whose beats demanded my prime headphone time. Turns out he’s an extremely prominent figure in the South African music scene. He is a Cape Town turntablist, scratch dj champion and producer who calls himself Sibot. His music is a genius blend of hip hop and electronica. It’s a touch of glitch squeezed out the edges of dope hip hop beats, smoothed out with some master scratching and just dripping with thick, grinding bass lines.
