RIP Frankie Knuckles‘The Godfather of House Music’, Frankie Knuckles, has passed away at the young age of 59. After an illustrious career that stretches back several decades, the music world has lost a true pioneer that is widely credited with establishing the ever popular House genre.Have a think about when you lock in to Mi-Soul. You’re more than likely to hear Soulful, infectious grooves and melodies over a strong four-to-the-floor beat at some point during your listen. Different rhythms, textures and approaches all done under the arc of House music. Whether it’s the sounds of Disclosure or Atjazz, none of this would be possible without Frankie Knuckles. His approach to DJing and production resonates throughout contemporary music. And we here at Mi-Soul will be forever grateful for his input into the music we all love.In honour of the late legend we have compiled a list of our favourite Frankie Knuckles productions, which you can find here.
RIP Frankie Knuckles
