Frankie Knuckles YOUR LOVE Will Live On


 Ill never forget the first time I heard this track, it was 1987. I had made my way all the way to Glasgow to go to this small shop called Dr. Jives. They sold clothes but had decks in the back of the shop. I was in there looking at clothes when I heard "For your love" for the first time. I had to ask what this was... the shop owner as Id come to find out was called Gordan Wagstaff, Gordon told me all about this new scene coming out of Chicago in America. He gave me a mix tape and told me to  "listen to this".

I ran home like Charlie from Willie Wonka with his chocolate bar. After popping the tape into the player I remember thinking I had never heard anything like this. The music opened my eyes and my heart to realized there were amazing things going on out there in the world. I played that tape over and over until it burst, later playing doctor trying to frankentape it all back together (as we did in those days). I continued to go back to Gordon for years as he was able to get more mix tapes from Chicago. 

Frankie Knuckles' music took me on a journey that eventually brought me to NYC and is such a part of who I am today and who we are at Nuprimary. 

Frankie was an American DJ, record producer and remixer. He was born in the Bronx NYC and later moved to Chicago, where was dubbed the Godfather of House Music for his important role in developing and popularizing house music in the 80's.

Frankie Knuckles passed away yesterday, March 31 2014 but his music, memory, energy and LOVE will live on forever...
