DJ Pierre book signing of INSPIRE THE MUSIC - 50 Years of Roland History

Holed up in his bedroom back in 1986, DJ Pierre invented a sound that would impact the music scene forever. At the time, acid house was in its infancy. That’s when, as part of the group Phuture, he picked up a Roland TB-303 and the infamous “Acid Tracks” recording was born.

In the years since, DJ Pierre has become the quintessential dance producer. With more than a decade of cutting-edge underground house productions to his credit, the master creator is at the height of his career and shows no sign of slowing down.

Creating a lasting niche in a genre that sees its players change continually, DJ Pierre’s name has become synonymous with some very provocative and influential sounds. In addition to “Acid Tracks,” he’s produced more than 50 house anthems ranging from Phuture's “The Creator” and “Your Old Friend” to Photon Inc.’s “Generate Power” and “Give a Little Love.” He also scored well with Joint Venture's “Master Blaster” and his own “Muzik Set You Free.” As a remixer, he's struck gold by reinventing more than two dozen infectious grooves, and hit Number One on the Billboard Dance chart with Midi Rain's “Shine.”
