Defected tribute to Frankie Knuckles

Featured image

Defected pays a tribute to Frankie Knuckles. The project started in February 2014 when the DJ started to collect productions and remixes dear to his heart, with the intention of releasing a retrospective on his illustrious career.

The tracklist included some of his most iconic songs “Tears“, “Your Love”, “The Whistle Song“, “Baby Wants To Ride“, plus remixes for Alison Limerick, Inner City, Caka Khan, Hercules & Love Affair, First Choice and Pet Shop Boys.
 Francis Warren Nicholls Jr. passed away a month later but the project has survived.

On April 26th, Defected will release the compilation with a commemorative limited edition t-shirt bearing the face of Godfather of House. The lot is only available on the label’s online store. A beautiful gift for House music lovers.
