DJ Pierre is one of the hardest working men in the music business. After more than a decade of producing innovative and cutting edge underground house music, the master creator is at the height of his burgeoning career, and shows no signs of slowing down.
More than just a producers’ producer, Pierre is the unconventional king of the hard-core house mixers and a visionary. One of the original producers of the 80’s Chicago scene. Pierre fuses together scorching acid grooves with pulsating beats, laden with the sultry vocal samples “I’m more or less a minority type producer,” he says “I make music for a very select group of people. It’s not for the masses. It’s for people who really know their music. If you just get into dance music, you probably won’t be into my tracks. Someone has to be deeper into house to get my music.”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.””House is always going to be here. There is always going to be some form of underground dance music. It’s not going to snuff out. People will always have a need to express themselves,” he says “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.”
