Afro Acid sister label, Jack Trax sees label head DJ Pierre team up with DJ Sneak this month to release ‘Back Up Off The Wall’. With over 30 years on the global house music scene, DJ Pierre, has been active since the ‘80s with releases on the likes of King Street, Strictly Rhythm and Nite Grooves to name a few.
Pierre teams up with DJ Sneak here, the Chicago house producer who has released on Cajual, Classic and Robsoul as well as on his own ‘I’m A House Gangster’ imprint for a new collaborative EP on Jack Trax.
The original mix of ‘Back Up Off the Wall’ leads, utilising Pierre’s signature modulated 303 acid sound which wanders throughout the cut alongside a classic, raw ’80s style vocal refrain and shuffled percussion to keep the track moving.
Pierre then delivers his ‘Wild Pitch’ rework of the track, providing a more ethereal take with underpinning pads, syncopated drums and an assortment of subtle synth blips.
DJ Pierre & DJ Sneak ‘Back Up Off the Wall’ is out on Jack Trax 20 July 2018.
