Sales Information:

Get Physical is proud to announce the release of the first ever album from Chicago house luminary DJ Pierre. Entitled Wild Pitch: The Story, it collects originals and remixes old and new, and stands as a testament to the unique skill of one of dance music’s most important figures. Famously, DJ Pierre as good as invented the squelch of acid house when playing with his Roland TR-303 drum machine as part of Phuture back in the late eighties. From there he went on to clock up more than 200 credits under aliases like Doomsday, Prime One, Raving Lunatics, AC!D FACE, DJ Pierre’s Afro Acid Project and many more. He also became famous for the Wild Pitch mixes and alias that lend this album its name: they were characterised by long intros, layer upon layer of strings, repetitive vocal samples, and filtered hypnotic sounds on hard beats. Working with labels like Strictly Rhythm, Trax, King Street, Nite Grooves, International Deejay Gigolo and more recently Get Physical, Pierre has contributed hugely to the global evolution of house music for thirty years plus. This is a timely reminder of that and one that is jam packed with essential tunes that, old or new, still sound impossibly fresh. Included is a cover version of Donna Summer’s classic and pioneering disco cut ‘I Feel Love’. It is a 9 minute masterpiece of loose drums, wild acid lines and synthesised squelches that build and build before the vocal arrives and carries you away to the stars [txt from ]
