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 Tracks” 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 (Kompakt Records), 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 fifteen years. DJ/Producer/Remixer, Nathaniel Pierre Jones AKA DJ ‘Wildpitch’ Pierre is a rare breed. An artist who’s considered a mentor to many of the ‘A’ list DJ fraternity, old and new, and one man who continues to stand strong in an industry that’s had its ups ‘n’ downs.
Today, we are proud to present an exclusive premiere, which comes as a remix from DJ Pierre, of Roy Davis Jr. feat. Tery Dexter‘s “My Nation”. The DJ Pierre version is littered with big chords and swooshes of white noise, making it a more energetic and peak time cut that sends hands in the air.
“My Nation” is available 16 November on Mile End Records
