DJ Pierre shows us why Atlanta is the Wild West for house music in 'My City' with WAV
The acid house originator takes us on a tour of the ATL's underground
For the fifth episode of Mixmag and WAV's My City series, acid house legend DJ Pierre takes us on an intimate tour of Atlanta to show us firsthand why the ATL is on the brink of an explosive house music renaissance.
"Atlanta, for me, is like the wild wild west," says Pierre. "Coming up in Chicago and New York, I helped build two scenes technically. Everything that the other cities have Atlanta has as well; it has just never had the infrastructure. What it does have are people who are hungry and excited about this music."
Mixmag and WAV have teamed up on a new original series called My City, which takes viewers on intimate tours of cities with artists who live, breathe and make up the fabric of the history and future of each destination.
