  • LOOKING BACK AT 2013

    On 17/01/2014

    Looking back at 2013 and it’s been quite a nice year release wise for Poirier. He took part to super exciting projects and each one had an edge that was thrilling. Firstly, there’s the Boogat album “El Dorado Sunset” (feb. 2013) that he helped co-producing with Boogat himself and they won at l’ADISQ for best producers of the year. Couple months later he introduced his …

Now on year 5, …

    Montréal, 12 février 2013 CHANTAGE CULTUREL Je me fiche de l’état de la chanson au Québec. C’est plutôt l’état de la musique qui me préoccupe. Quand je vois qu’un Forum sur la chanson québécoise est organisé par le Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec (CALQ), je me dis que le postulat de départ est d’emblée erroné et que tout ce qui s’ensuivra sera …

  • MUSIC TALK #1

    On 16/11/2012

    Je ne m’appelle pas DJ Poirier. Je ne me suis jamais appelé DJ Poirier. Jamais. Nope. POIRIER, tout simplement. Je suis musicien avant tout. Je n’ai jamais mis DJ devant mon nom d’artiste. Il y a quelques années j’utilisais aussi mon prénom, mais ce n’est plus le cas depuis 2009. J’ai sept albums à mon actif. Pas des mixes, des albums que j’ai composé de …
