That special squelch of acid house was spawned by DJ Pierre, often called the godfather of the dance music style. DJ Pierre is back, getting his latest release on double LP vinyl thanks to Diggers Factory, the one-stop hub for vinyl funding, creation, and distribution.
The service is collaborating with Get Physical Music for the vinyl release, this album called “Wild Pitch: The Story” (released Nov. 24, 2017), is a collection of originals and remixes, and a testament to DJ Pierre’s unique skills. This 2xLP offers 8 tracks, including a cover version of Donna Summer’s classic and pioneering disco cut “I Feel Love.”
Pierre has contributed hugely to the global evolution of house music for more than thirty years. Part of the foundational Chicago house group Phuture, he was instrumental in shaping and spreading the sound. He’s continued developing as an artist in the ensuing decades, launching his own club in Atlanta.
“Wild Pitch: The Story” is a reminder of his influence on the scene, a retrospective and new take at the same time. It is packed with essential tunes that, old or new, still sound impossibly fresh.This landmark album packs a real punch, while documenting one of the most legendary figures house music has ever known.
“The collection, named after his famous Wild Pitch mix series, finds the Chicago producer unleashing new tracks and reimagining old ones.” --Fact Mag (UK)
Get Physical and Dj Pierre choose to work with Diggers Factory to launch this important release. Diggers Factory burst onto the vinyl-loving scene earlier this year, working with France’s radio and TV archive INA to unearth lost gems by Serge Gainsbourg and Ray Charles and enabling artists and small labels to release vinyl without breaking the bank.
Diggers Factory collects pre-orders from interested fans before printing a limited run of LPs. Once orders have reached a certain number, the LP gets pressed and mailed to fans. The unique releases are an extension of Diggers Factory’s vinyl-on-demand service. With batches as small as 50, DF sources vinyl from factories around Europe to guarantee turnaround times and quality. The platform works closely with labels and artists to move with minimal friction from mastered files to fulfillment.
The pre-order campaign for DJ Pierre’s release on Diggers Factory will last about 40 days. The idea is very simple: 300 pre-orders are needed to fund and launch the production of this historic release. Exclusive listening and vinyl pre-order on Diggers Factory: bit.ly/2xKrR0f
