Dance music suffered another irreversible blow with the sudden passing of Pierce Fulton on April 29. The visionary talent isolated a spot for himself in the overcrowded space of progressive house throughout the mid-2010’s with originals that included “Runaway,” “Old Man & The Sea,” “Where We Were” with Polina, “Waiting For Tomorrow” with Martin Garrix and Mike Shinoda, and “Kuaga,” falling across the board as underappreciated and time-tested releases that would guarantee his rank amongst dance music’s most hallowed names so many years later.
At the heart of it all during 2014’s fall season and just a few weeks past the arrival of “Kuaga,” Fulton was generous enough to grace Dancing Astronaut with an hour-long set for our AXIS mix series. Spanning 14 tracks that validated his inimitable knack for curation, Fulton effortlessly twisted together a bucket of Introducing Pierce Fulton staples in between a slew of numerous progressive and electro house classics from DubVision, ARTY, Dyro, Arno Cost, and Kryder, among others. In commemoration of the life that Pierce Fulton put forth in his 28 years on Earth as well as the irreplaceable legacy that he has now left behind, it seemed only fitting we turned back the clock and revisited his nostalgia-induced AXIS mix. Rest in peace and thank you for everything, Pierce.
