Back in the day when acid was just a tab, DJ Pierre was holed up in his bedroom inventing a sound which would impact on the music scene forever. In 1986, 'acid house' was in its infancy when DJ Pierre picked up a 303 and the infamous "Acid Trax" was born.
Not many artists in the history of dance music can list Carl Cox, Diesel (X-Press 2), Junior Vasquez, Danny Tenaglia, Michael Mayer and Tom Stephan 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 and pioneering a sound that had the whole world dancing and imitating for over 20 years. DJ/Producer/Remixer, Nathaniel Pierre Jones AKA DJ ‘Wildpitch' Pierre is a rare breed. An artist who's considered a mentor and influence to many of the A-list DJ fraternity, old and new including Steve Aoki, Laidback Luke, Tommie Sunshine, Body High, Harvard Bass. He is one man who continues to stand strong in an industry that's had its ups ‘n' downs.
From the days of ‘Phuture', Pierre's highly successful guise with fellow squelchers Spanky and Herb J - from the epic release ‘Acid Trax' to his biggest hit, ‘The Horn Song,' which features Barbara Tucker – to his solo projects with Louie Vega, David Morales, Felix Da Housecat, and more recently Boys Noize and Carl Cox, Laidback Luke and his stint as Head of A&R at Strictly Rhythm (back in the day) make him a force to be reckoned with.
After a bit of a break to get prepped for DJ Pierre's Afro Acid Project', his very first artist album, DJ Pierre is back and ready to show the world just why house music was worth shouting about in the first place.
He is also launching AC!D FACE incorporating the Roland 303 and other elements to produce a mind altering experience for those he takes on his musical journey!
"I feel a renewed sense of direction in my career. I've never had so many positive things in place at one time like I do now. I have my own wonderful team at AFRO ACID and I can be hands off business enough to create and make the music I love. I am very excited about being head of my own label and the opportunity to make my first full album. I am humbled by what's happening." - DJ Pierre
