Afro Acid is a Movement. It started as a label where label boss DJ Pierre could simply escape for just a bit-and evolve freely as an artist, without comparison to the DJ Pierre of Acid Tracks and Wildpitch revolutions. Fast forward almost 12 years and Afro Acid is now a birthing place of homegrown talent. Artists such as Beyun have found their way here and under the careful guide of DJ Pierre, we are releasing them to you world. Join the Movement.
DJ Pierre is the quintessential dance producer. With his finger on the pulse of today's underground house scene, he is shaping the present and laying the ground work for the future. Pierre is currently laying down tracks for his forthcoming full-length opus and in the midst of starting his own underground dance label.
Over the past 10 years, DJ Pierre has created a niche for himself in a genre that sees its players change continually, most being forgotten more than remembered. Moreover, his name has become synonymous with some very provocative and influential sounds. Pierre has produced more than 50 house anthems ranging from Phuture's «Acid Trax», «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 «Masterblaster» and his own «Muzik Set You Free.» As a remixer, he's hit gold by reinventing more than two dozen infectious grooves including, Phuture's «Spirit,» RuPaul's «A Shade Shady,» The Pet Shop Boys «I Wouldn't Normally Do This Kind Of Thing» and Urban Soul's «Sex On My Mind.» He hit number one on the Billboard Dance chart with Midi Rain's «Shine.»
