Acid house pioneer DJ Pierre was at the BBC Essential Mix controls at the weekend.

The Chicago producer started his mix with 'Acid Tracks', a record he made as part as Phuture, which is regarded as the first ever acid house track.

Dark Matter's remix of DJ Pierre's 'Destroy This Track' is also included, as is 'Dry Me' by Heiko on Klockworks, Cajmere's 'Day By Day', Paula Temple's 'Gegen' and Amir Alexander's 'White Rhino'.

DJ Pierre was in Phuture with Herb J and DJ Spank-Spank, the latter who passed away in September, releasing on Acid Trax, Strictly Rhythm and Dance Mania throughout the late '80s and '90s.
