About

A series of parties in Platform (formerly The Arches) showcasing DJs who made the venue the stuff of clubbing legend.

DJ PIERRE Creator of Acid + Wildpitch genres. Chicago house music pioneer & member of Phuture.

Back in the mid 80’s, DJ Pierre was holed up in his bedroom inventing a sound which would impact on the world music scene forever. In 1986, ‘Acid House’ was in its pre-infancy when DJ Pierre picked up a Roland TB-303 and the infamous “Acid Tracks” 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. 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.

From the days of ‘Phuture’, Pierre’s highly successful guise with fellow squelchers DJ Spank Spank and Herb J—and their epic release ‘Acid Trax’—to his biggest hit ‘The Horn Song’—featuring Barbara Tucker—his solo projects with David Morales, Felix Da Housecat and his stint as Head of A&R at Strictly Rhythm, DJ Pierre is a force to be reckoned with.

“My music is the centre of my world”, says the Acid Boss. “Once I get the vibe going, I can’t stop. It’s an intense feeling, fusing the rhythm and beats in an underground groove that makes the dance floor shake and people move. It’s a very spiritual evolution for me — one that I take very seriously.”

“I get a really spiritual vibe from what I do. With the right beat, the right flow, I get a hypnotic feeling from the music I produce. I could be doing something more commercial, but then it wouldn’t be true.”

Party kicks off from 7pm till 12am
