DJ Pierre

Back in the day when acid was just a tab, DJ PIERRE was holed up in his bedroom inventing a sound which would impact on the music scene forever. In 1986, ‘acid house’ was in its pre-infancy when DJ Pierre picked up a 303 and the infamous “Acid Tracks” was born.

Not many artists in the history of dance music can list Carl Cox, Daft Punk, Richie Hawtin, Junior Vasquez, Danny Tenaglia, and Michael Mayer (Kompakt Records) as fans. Not many can claim responsibility for helping kick start the careers of Felix Da Housecat and Roy Davis Jr. Not many can lay claim to giving birth to a genre and pioneering a sound that had the whole world dancing and imitating for over fifteen years. DJ/Producer/Remixer, Nathaniel Pierre Jones AKA DJ 'Wildpitch' Pierre is a rare breed. An artist who's considered a mentor to many of the 'A' list DJs, old and new, and one man who continues to stand strong in an industry that's had its ups 'n' downs.

From the days of 'Phuture', Pierre's highly successful guise with fellow squelchers Spanky and Herb J—and their epic release ‘Acid Trax’—to his biggest hit 'The Horn Song'—featuring Barbara Tucker—his solo projects with David Morales, Felix Da Housecat and his stint as Head of A&R at Strictly Rhythm, DJ Pierre is a force to be reckoned with.

Beyun

Though BEYUN has only been actively DJing since 2014, she is quickly proving herself to be a dominant force in the underground. In her first two years, she started a successful monthly techno party in Boston called VAULT and performed with DJ Pierre, Dennis Ferrer, The Black Madonna, DJ Minx, Fred P (Black Jazz Consortium), Kai Alce, Jeff Derringer, and Kim Ann Foxman. Recognizing her talent and ear for music, DJ Pierre invited Beyun to join his Afro Acid team in Atlanta and offered her a role as A&R and Label Manager for his record labels Afro Acid and Jack Trax.

Beyun was born in the Philippines to a Ukrainian-American father, a German mother, and given a Korean name. Her family moved from the Philippines to eastern Russia/Siberia in the early '90s, spending time in and out of Germany, and settling in Seattle after '95. In 2006 Beyun moved to Boston to study Physics at MIT. Her introduction to techno and house came in 2012 from the legendary Berlin clubs Berghain & Tresor.
