One of the highlights during SXSW was definitely getting to listen to Ghislain Poirier play 3 times over the course of the 4 days. On top of hearing him play I got to hang out with him a bit also and he is a super nice guy. Definitely passionate about his sounds and very laid back about the world that goes on around him.
The sets he played were superb with an amazing remix of a Roisin Murphy tune. One of a kind apparently and the $5 bribe I offered for a copy wasn't accepted! ;)
Ghislain has some shows in Europe coming up and I highly recommend you check him out. BASS heavy!
