DJ Pierre is the stage name of Nathaniel Pierre Jones, a Chicago born DJ and performer of house music. He helped to develop the house music subgenre of Acid House as member of Phuture, whose 1987 E.P. Acid Trax, which has been called the "first Acid House recording." Allmusic.com calls Jones a "crucial DJ and the production wizard partly responsible for the development of Chicago acid-house." Jones' first single "Generate Power," "became standard fare for scores of producers during the next few years." Philippe Renaud, a journalist for La Presse in Montreal, states that the term "Acid house" was "coined in Chicago in 1987 to describe the sound of the Roland 303 bass machine, which made its first significant recording appearance on Phuture's Acid Trax (DJ Pierre) in that year."
