June is Black Music Month.
Today I’m celebrating Frankie Knuckles, The Godfather of House Music.
He played a massive role in developing house music in the 1980s, as well as working as a DJ, remixer and producer.
His mix of Where Love Lives is one of my all-time favourite tracks.
Similarly, his remix of Chaka Khan’s Ain’t Nobody is euphoric.
I also love this remix of Janet Jackson & Luther Vandross’ The Best Things In Life Are Free; another classic.
Without Frankie Knuckles we wouldn’t have had the house music that we know and love.
