Dreamy sounds of the Underground...
Frankie Knuckles is the Godfather of House. After early sets at the Warehouse and Power Plant in Chicago, he moved back to New York and formed Def Mix Productions with David Morales. They churned out beautiful remixes for the biggest names in pop - Michael Jackson, Diana Ross, Toni Braxton... Lisa Stansfield.
Universe were the UK's #1 rave promoters - priding themselves on value, huge productions and uncompromising DJ line ups, peaking with Tribal Gathering in 1993! Sadly, increased political and policing pressure meant they failed to profit, even with 20k crowds, and were out of business before the end of the year. Here we go back to their final rave - Big Love - and Frankie's co-headline set from the Heaven stage.
