Pale Mal (feat. Fwonte)

A 3 track soca single (13m 30s) — released February 24th 2017 on Nice Up!

As the winter months bring the cool freeze, international bass connoisseur Poirier bursts out a hot ray of sunshine on another track from his acclaimed album "Migration". Inspired partly by the konpa music of the Caribbean, "Pale Mal" features Haitian rapper Fwonte, who delivers his vocals in creole, simultaneously throwing Haitian, Jamaican and Canadian vibes into the pot. A video was shot last year on location in Haiti, proving to be a hit both locally and around the world, so we thought it high time to delve into some remixes to bring the track to a wider audience. Up-and-coming UK producer Murder He Wrote (hotly tipped in Toddla T's "Freshman Session of 2017" and signed to Roska's Kicks & Snares label) delivers a heavy UK Funky inspired remix, with signature skipping drums and a growling sub, which should see some action on more experimental house DJs floors too. Meanwhile, Jamaica's craziest export since spiked rum punch; Equiknoxx, who also made waves with their highly rated "Bird Sound Power" landing in a lot of "Best albums of 2016" lists, also get in on the action - dispensing with most of the vocal and taking the track deep into leftfield dancehall/bass territory.
