When you ask almost anyone about acid house, it’s a good chance they’ll mention Chicago super group Phuture. With the legendary DJ Pierre being an essential member of the group, and the beginning of acid as a whole.
Now following his ‘Wild Pitch: The Story’ album on Get Physical and his Acid 88 various artists compilation, Pierre is giving us even more music to enjoy. This time via his own Afro Acid Digital label. Previously the label has hosted names like Timo Garcia, Green Velvet and Louie Vega.
As he welcomes New York talent Evan Landes aka. Groove Junkies to the label for his Higher (Remixes) EP, it delivers Evan’s original mix alongside edits from Quentin Harris and DJ Pierre himself.
We run back a premiere for Pierre’s WildPitch Mix, with velvety soft pads, rigid snare slaps, hypnotic house drums and an ever-evolving arrangement, it’s a clean cut display of the potential of both DJ Pierre and house music in general.
Groove Junkies’ Higher (Remixes) will drop 13th July on Afro Acid Digital.
