DJ mix: DJ Pierre

The acid-house originator DJ Pierre doles out some blips and bleeps in this new DJ mix.

Who likes acid? Or should we ask, who doesn’t like acid? (It should be noted we’re talking about acid house here, not lysergic acid diethylamide—though we’re sure that has a few fans among TONY’s readership as well.) Santos Party House will be positively dripping in acid—again, the music kind, not LSD—when a crew of the sound’s mid-’80s originators, DJ Pierre and his compadres from the seminal Chicago production unit Phuture—take control of the club on Friday, October 5. In the meantime, here’s a punchy little mix from Pierre, which not only delivers a brief history of acid, but squeezes in a bit of disco and soul (including a mix of Al Green’s “Love and Happiness”), along with a bit of squelchy business as well.

All Night Rong: We Are Phuture is at Santos Party House Friday, October 5.
