DJ PIERRE YALL! The man who was instrumental in defining the sound that launched the rave movement worldwide: ACID HOUSE. With his group, Phuture, in 1986 he released the seminal ‘Acid Tracks’, widely acknowledged as the first ever acid house tune, and a phenomenon was born that is still powerfully reverberating throughout electronic dance culture to this day. He has gone on to produce many more seminal acid, deep, and funky house classics on bedrock labels such as Trax, Strictly Rhythm, Dance Mania, Hot Mix 5 Records, Jack Trax, and more. His discography is a fundamental part of the House Music Canon. Behind the decks, Pierre is a deeply funky Chicago badman who can turn a 21st century dance floor all the way out, as well evidenced by his blinding set on Boiler Room from last August. Trust this will be a phenomenal set from a legend who traces his roots to the beginnings of House Music. Bubblin fam, get ready to jack.
So come one, come all and bear witness to the PDX debut of a true musical icon of our times within the fantastic sounding confines of Mississippi Studios!
