Biography

Chicago, United States (mid-1980s – present)

Nathaniel Pierre Jones, is a Chicago born DJ and performer of music. He helped to develop the house-music subgenre of acid house, as member of Phuture, whose 1987 EP Acid Tracks, which was called the first -house recording. Allmusic.com calls Jones a crucial DJ and the production wizard partly responsible for the development of Chicago -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 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.

Jones has recorded under the names Audio Clash, Darkman, Disco Fuhrer, DJ Pierre, DJ Pierre’s Afro Acid Project, Doomsday, M & M, Nathaniel Pierre Jones, One Screaming Idiot, p-ditty, Pfantasia, Photon Inc., Phugitive, PHUTURE SCOPE, Pierre’s Pfantasy Club, Raving Lunatics, The Don, Time Warp, X Fade, and Yvette. He formed the group Phuture with his friends Spanky (Earl Smith Jr. –founder/technical producer) and Herb J (Herbert R Jackson Jr. - keyboards). During the mid-1980s, the trio began using the squelch sound that became common in House recordings after the group’s initial experiments with a Roland TB-303 bass line synthesizer.
