My humble tribute mix in honor of Frankie Knuckles' memory.
Like everyone else I was shocked and incredibly saddened by his passing. He was a huge influence to me musically, and an inspiration for any DJ worthy of that name. My own "Heart Beats" series was inspired by him after I last saw him live in 2010. His performance was so touching and uplifting that it gave me renewed energy to start again, and continue putting mixes out on a regular basis. I regularly featured his tracks on many of the mixes you'll find on my page.
This mix contains but a small sample of my own Knuckles' records collection, which itself is but a drop in the ocean of the entirety of his works. Hope you enjoy it. I've kept the transitions simple to let the tracks speak for themselves.
Rest in Peace Frankie. Thank you for your wonderful gift. You will be missed, but we will continue to honor your memory and your music for a long, long time.
