Against the Clock: DJ Pierre
As part of Phuture, DJ Pierre invented acid house – pioneering, and some would say perfecting, the 303-driven style with 1987’s Acid Tracks EP. Few people shaped dance music like he did, and he continues to push the acid sound to this day – though his gargantuan discography also features techno, hip-house and more.
If you want to see what Pierre can do with an hour rather than 10 minutes, make sure to catch him at Bloc 2015. For tickets and full line-up, head here, and don’t forget to check Ed DMX’s run-down of the 20 best acid house records.
