The Indiana native got hooked on techno at a young age. And ever since, it's been a love affair with beats. All that uhntz-uhntz
-ing romance took him overseas to Berlin where he attracted big names like German minimal queen Magda and Canadian cruiser Marc Houle. Pierce ended up forming the group Run Stop Restore and scored a spot on Richie Hawtin's elite MINUS label roster. But his passion only continues to grow.
