DJ Pierre (US)

Artist & Speaker

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 pre-infancy
when DJ Pierre picked up a Roland TB-303 and the monumental "Acid Track" was born.

Not many artists in the history of dance music can list Carl Cox, Daft Punk, Richie Hawtin, Junior
Vasquez, Danny Tenaglia, and Michael Mayer (Kompakt Records) as fans. Not many can claim
responsibility for helping kick start the careers of Felix Da Housecat and Roy Davis Jr. and 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 thirty years. DJ/Producer/Remixer, Nathaniel Pierre Jones AKA DJ
Pierre is a rare breed.

A pioneer of not one but two genres—acid house and wildpitch—Pierre is an artist who is
considered a mentor to many of the "A" list DJs—old and new—whose passion and talent
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 DJ Spank
Spank and Herb J—and their epic release "Acid Track" to his biggest hit "The Horn Song"—
featuring Barbara Tucker—his solo projects with David Morales, a mentor to both Felix Da
Housecat and Roy Davis Jr., and his stint as Head of A&R at Strictly Rhythm, DJ Pierre is a force
to be reckoned with.
