© Frankie KnucklesHe was known as the godfafther of house for his part in giving birth to the Chicago sound that would rule the world in the 80’s, Frankie Knuckles, who sadly passed away yesterday…

When I read the news yesterday that house music legend Frankie Knuckles had sadly passed away at his home I had to check the date. The 1st of April can bring homage to many a joke and maybe a slim part of me wished this news was a very distasteful one. Sadly though, its not and the dance music world has lost one of its house icons in Frankie Knuckles. He was 59 and still as into his jacking sounds as he was way back in the late 70’s when he started to tweak with his knobs. He helped pioneer the Chicago sound that would be so influential on bring the house music genre to the masses.


If you’re like me and never had the chance to witness that era first hand you can only look back to the impact and music he created during that time. The news yesterday was broadcast over social media and tributes from DJ’s all over the globe poured in wishing their final farewell to a house icon. One of his close friends David Morales has posted up a tribute mix in honour of Frankie which you can listen to below. It’s a sad day for the dance music scene, as house music has lost its godfarther, but while he may be gone, his music will remain timeless.


DAVID MORALES TRIBUTE MIX




CLASSIC FRANKIE KNUCKLES - YOUR LOVE


 


God has a place on the dancefloor,” he once told the Tribune. “We wouldn’t have all the things we have if it wasn’t for God. We wouldn’t have the one thing that keeps us sane – music. It’s the one thing that calms people down … I think dancing is one of the best things anyone can do for themselves. And it doesn’t cost anything.


Frankie Knuckles (1955 – 2014)
