Just want to add the voice of myself, my co-DJ on Somer Valley FM Frustrated DJace and The Boomstick Show to those people expressing shock and sadness at the passing of legendary house DJ Frankie Knuckles over the past 24 hours.
The man will always be The Godfather of House Music and an inspiration to DJs, remixers and producers alike for his role in the evolution of house and club culture, his dedication to the scene and the huge amount of charity work that he did up until his death.
As a result, the original plans for Show 157 (the Battle mix) have been put on hold and it’ll now be a tribute to Frankie Knuckles with a mix of his stuff – it’s the best way I can think of honouring such a great guy. Hopefully myself and Jace will play this mix out on Somer Valley FM this Friday evening as a fitting tribute to him and it’ll be available here soon.
R.I.P Frankie – God’s House is now your house.
