Acid house pioneer DJ Pierre was at the BBC Essential Mix controls last weekend to celebrate 30 years of ‘Acid Tracks’, featuring classic acid house alongside soulful and jacking house music new and old.

The Chicago producer started his mix with ‘Acid Tracks’, a record he made as part as Phuture, which is regarded as the first ever acid house track, released on Trax Records in 1987.

Dark Matter’s remix of DJ Pierre’s ‘Destroy This Track’ is also included, as is ‘Dry Me’ by Heiko on Klockworks, Cajmere’s ‘Day By Day’, Paula Temple’s ‘Gegen’ and Amir Alexander’s ‘White Rhino’.

DJ Pierre was in Phuture with Herb J and DJ Spank-Spank, the latter who passed away in September, releasing on Acid Trax, Strictly Rhythm and Dance Mania throughout the late ’80s and ’90s.
