A Tearful Farewell For House Music’s Godfather, Frankie Knuckles

Yesterday, the legendary Chicago DJ + Producer Frankie Knuckles passed away + it’s hard to keep my tears back while I type this.  Luckily, I’ve had the pleasure of sharing the dance floor with many fellow house heads while Knuckles turned it out at the turntables.  Knuckles was also an amazing producer, as you’ll hear below.   Not only was he talented, but a kind person as well.

To have lost such an innovative talent like Knuckles, is just plain sad, but I’m sure he’ll be werqing it like only he could, up in heaven.  R. I. P. Frankie.

Now have a listen to some of my favorite songs + remixes by Frankie Knuckles:

‘MOVE YOUR BODY’ – Frankie Knuckles Presents Marshall Jefferson

‘TEARS’

‘BABY WANTS TO RIDE’

Michael Jackson’s ‘ROCK WITH YOU’ remix
