DJ Pierre teams up with NoWayBack to launch a new line of Exclusive T-Shirts!

Original Chicago acid house pioneer and leading DJ/Producer DJ Pierre has teamed up with the limited edition UK clothing  brand NoWayBack to launch a unique series of DJ Pierre tee shirts.

Inspired by his definitive musical journey, the Afro Acid Traxx label head, DJ Pierre enthuses..
“I’ve always had ideas about enhancing the message behind the music by using what we wear daily. Words and  images are powerful. They can create a thought that can lead to reality. On any given night at one of my DJ sets you  will see me in a Tee shirt usually with either a blatant or subtle meaning, so it was only natural that I was thinking  of my own Tee shirt design ideas to share with my music family. I met the guys behind NoWayBack after I posted  a mug online with a Roland TB 303 on it. NoWayBack hit me up on facebook and they said they do Tees etc. I  mentioned I had plans of putting out my own line separate from the Afro Acid brand and one thing led to another.  I got a great vibe from them straightaway and they sent out a few Tees from their collection and I rocked them at almost every gig after. We then started going over design ideas and came up with some exciting pieces. Almost a  year later here we are. “ACID Hot Since 86” is our first baby and it speaks to when Acid House began. The start of  it all for me”

The first DJ Pierre collection by NoWayBack item features 4 designs including ‘Acid – Hot Since 86’,  ‘Muzik Is Life’ smiley  tee, ‘Muzik Is Life…Warehouse’ and the Afro Acid tee shirt all available at: 
and via various outlets in the UK, including London’s Phonica Records – the store to buy dance music/vinyl in London.

NoWayBack founders Helen & Chris are hugely excited by the partnership with DJ Pierre – an artist they respect and who is a
perfect compliment to their growing brand.

“We got in touch with Pierre as we love what he has done for dance music and thought he would be perfect to represent the brand as we were getting a lot of our design influences from the early acid house scene/genre. e.g. The Roland 303  and 808 drum machines.
