DJ PIERRE BIO:
Pierre’s importance to modern dance music can’t be overstated. Not many artists in the history of dance music can list Carl Cox, Diesel (X-Press 2), Junior Vasquez, Danny Tenaglia, Michael Mayer (Kompakt Records), Bob Sinclar, and Tom Stephan (Superchumbo) as fans. Not many can claim responsibility for helping kick start the careers of Felix Da Housecat and Roy Davis Jr. Not many can lay claim to giving birth to a genre (Acid House) and pioneering a sound that had the whole world dancing and imitating for over fifteen years.
As a founding member of Chicago group Phuture with Spanky and Herb J, the trio’s 1986 single ‘Acid Trax’ didn’t mark the first use of the Roland TB-303′s bass sound in dance music, but it did ￼mark its most significant, setting a template for Acid House that Pierre and Phuture would develop on tracks like "Dream Girl" and "Your Only Friend".
