Carl Cox delivers a big-league remix of DJ Pierre's 'Acid Track'
Acid house pioneer DJ Pierre is celebrating 35 years of DJing and making music with a massive remix package of his iconic 'Acid Track'.
Pierre started out in the early 1980s with his friend Spanky in their hometown Chicago. The two put together a group called Phuture and created their own sound, creating 'Acid Tracks', considered the first acid house tune.
To honor this hugely influential dancefloor slammer, DJ Pierre has tapped 35 house and techno luminaries to remix the track.
Having already dropped the first volume of the package with remixes from the likes of Bloody Mary, Paco Osuna and KiNK, the second volume of '35 (Acid Track Remixes)' features Lorenzo Cheng, Anfisa Letyago, Luciano, Najel Monteiro and the king himself, Carl Cox.
Ahead of the remix EP's release this September, Carl Cox has been kind enough to share his interpretation of the track with Mixmag. His spin on 'Acid Track' builds big and throws down heavy with bulky drums that rise up with the classic acid line in a devastatingly club-ready demeanor.
The EP '35-002 (Acid Track Remixes)' has a limited pressing of 500. Purchase it here.
