Multi-Platnum Caribbean Artiste

orn Irwin Placido Sluis on the small Caribbean  island of  Bonaire  in the Netherlands Antilles, Ir Sais  began playing drums on tin cans at age 11. Completely self-taught,  Ir Sais mastered several instruments as well as the production side. After getting Ir Sais  first taste of success with local Bonaire bands,  he moved to the Netherlands in 2008, launching a solo career with original material that fuses pop with the Caribbean zouk rhythm.

In 2018, Ir Sais song “Dream Girl” piqued the interest of French remixer Djly Prod, who helped  the song  go viral and spawned the dream girl challenge, which drew massive attention to both the song and TikTok, over 4 billion streams. The “Dream Girl Remix,” featuring the Puerto Rican sensation Rauw Alejandro, dropped in December 2019, and has surpassed 300 million views on YouTube. Billboard declared it the “Best Latin Song of 2020” as the song  picked up even more during the pandemic. In 2020, Jamaican  icon Sean Paul and Nigerian Afro beats star Davido also hopped on the “Dream Girl (Global Remix).” Two years after the impact of Ir Sais 8x platinum hit “Dream Girl,” Ir Sais sets a course for his new batch of summer party anthems and infectious love ballads with his Deeper X (Part 1) EP. 

The five-song collection is a seamless blend of afro pop, dancehall and reggaeton. Ir Sais records these songs in Papiamento, the language of his native island, with roots in Portuguese, Spanish, Dutch and Africaack to finding love in the club.

Ir Sais teams up with Colombian vocal. “Chikita Mala,” one of the EP’s first releases in 2022, is a soundtr ist Manuel Turizo on “Bailia Kumi,” the magnetic song and video which has hypnotized over 4.5 million viewers on YouTube alone. On “Flauta,” Ir Sais rallies Colombian rapper Farina for a fiercely commanding verse, followed by dancehall veteran Konshens, who delivers his signature arousing wordplay.
