DJ Pierre is one of the hardest working men in the music business. After more than a decade of producing innovative and cutting edge underground house music, the master creator is at the height of his burgeoning career, and shows no signs of slowing down.
He has become one of the most in-demand producers and DJ's. He's constantly sought after in Europe, playing regularly in Germany, the UK, Italy and France. And he's a staple at the clubs in New York City.
In the next few months, Pierre plans to launch his own house music label, along with an R&B one. He'll also continue his successful work with Twisted America Records, Strictly Rhythm and the other handful of labels with whom he has become synonymous. And he only expects the pace to continue getting faster, both in his work. With LaVette, who co-writes most of his material, he hopes to focus more on vocal tracks, as well as the house sound for which he has become famous.
Louis Vega Vs DJ Pierre - Da Jungle (Timo Garcia's Wild Pitch Mix) by TimoGarcia
"House is always going to be here. There is always going to be some form of underground dance music. It's not going to snuff out. People will always have a need to express themselves," he says "I get a really spiritual vibe from what I do. With the right beat, the right flow, I get a hypnotic feeling from the music I produce. I could be doing something more commercial, but then it wouldn't be true".

Marshall Jefferson is one of the founding fathers of house music as it is known today. Born in Chicago in 1959, Marshall was a central figure in the development of the Chicago house scene and produced seminal house anthems including ‘Move Your Body’, ‘7 Ways To Jack’ and ‘Open Our Eyes’.
He has worked with the best in the business, from fellow founding father Frankie Knuckles to Roy Davis Jr., Steve ‘Silk’ Hurley, Felix Da Housecat and Lil Louis. Marshall has had a leading hand in the growth of the acid and deep house movements and even today continues to evolve these genres amid dooms-dayers predicting their collective demise.
