After making a massive comeback to the front of the scene this year, 2015 is set to be the year of DJ Pierre. A pioneer of the squelchy sounds of acid-house through his work with Phuture (for the people who missed out on their incredible Berghain performance, their live Boiler Room set serves as a great introduction to their music), DJ Pierre made a name for himself in the late 80’s and early 90’s with tracks like Fantasy Girl and Your Only Friend and is now back on full form with a release on legendary house imprint Get Physical.
What Is House Muzik showcases the Chicago musician’s ability to craft timeless house songs with a classic acid edge. The track, which was also remixed by Ricardo Villalobos and DJ T, has already shot up to the top of the Beatport charts, achieving number 1 spot on the tech-house charts and number 3 on the house charts. DJ Pierre also mixed the latest edition of the Get Physical podcast that you can listen to HERE.
Read more about DJ Pierre on The Guardian, Fact (and again for Against The Clock), Thump (Vice), Data Transmission, Ranker, Radio Klub, Boiler Room and head to the NoWayBak Store for merch.
