DJ Pierre celebrates 30 years of Acid House on Radio 1's Essential Mix.

As a member of Chicago's Phuture, with Herb J and the late Earl 'Spank Spank' Smith, DJ Pierre created what is widely held up as the first ever Acid House record, 'Acid Tracks', released on Trax Records in 1987.

30 years later and Pierre returns to the Essential Mix to celebrate this milestone in dance music history with a new Essential Mix, featuring classic acid house alongside soulful and jacking house music new and old.
