Paul van Dyk, a Grammy-nominated artist and globally acclaimed DJ and producer, expressed his excitement about the collaboration, stating, “Working with DJ Pierre has been a dream come true. He’s a founding member of music as we know it and revolutionized electronic music with his innovative use of the Roland TB-303. We wanted to create a track that pays homage to the roots of electronic music while pushing boundaries and taking listeners on a sonic journey.”
DJ Pierre, a true pioneer of the acid house movement, remarked, “Teaming up with Paul has been an incredible experience. ‘ACID TRAXXX’ is a fusion of our musical worlds, and it captures the essence of what both of us stand for in the world of electronic music.”
‘ACID TRAXXX’ is a relentless, high-energy composition that blends the signature 303 basslines and squelchy synthesizers of acid house with uplifting melodies and driving beats. The track has already generated immense anticipation within the electronic music community and is expected to be a highlight of both artists’ live sets.
