LABEL: Ninja Tune
INFO: Ghislain Poirier, one of the most commanding artists around exploring new terrains of hip hop and electronic music fused with world riddim idioms twisted deep around bass. His obsession for the big, the dirty and the rhythmic laid the foundation for creating No Ground Under, his first album for Ninja Tune. No Ground Under is chock full of cosmopolitan bass & chunky digital dancehall. Quick-fast riddims with scattered snare chatting slap up against future electro funk, fat beat stabs, and sub bass switch-ups. Grimy digital soca (what you don’t know, this is the next level jump up, run the towel) gets lit up beside laser beams slicing through congas. Electro pop with right amount of fucked up double-up gets melodically crunked out. Bodyrocking meets necksnapping in all the right places.
