Every weekend you could find Alex Pi playing on after parties in Rotterdam, where he met an american student, who took him to the states and showed him around in the american house scene. You could say that Alex has prooved him self being consistent in keeping his audiencepassionate.

Afro Acid Plastik was created for the VINYL purist. We believe there is still a demand for vinyl and the authenticity and uniqueness it brings.


With so many digital labels on the various download sites, it’s very easy to get lost in the shuffle so we are pleased to provide another avenue to all djs and music fans who desire the authentic feel that only vinyl can give. Not only do we embrace the technology we are surrounded by, we are still very passionate about the medium that we 1st got our beats from…Vinyl. 

Not to mention a wide range of DJ’s still prefer the Midas touch of that plastic-DJ Pierre 

DJ Pierre aka Tha Don…the man responsible for inventing Acid House in the 80’s and Wild Pitch in 90’s has always kept his right ear in tune with this House movement. He, along with his label partner and A&R Alex Pi have found a home for worldwide distribution with Prime Direct Distribution. 

We are interested in signing Artists who are very free and open in their productions. Our releases will be true to the Afro Acid mold. There will be no barriers. Our artist can go from being an Electro act, to Acid, Deep House, Techno, etc. Just good electronic Music.
