About Frankie Knuckles
Widely recognized as the godfather of House, Frankie Knuckles migrated from New York to Chicago at the time when Disco was about to explode into the mainstream in the late '70s. Together with fellow friends and pioneers Ron Hardy and Larry Levan, Knuckles claims responsibility for creating House from a raw Disco blueprint. Smooth mixes balance out Chicago-style grooves with New York nuances, often spotlighting R&B vocals from varied superstar divas like Jamie Principle and Adeva. Still part of the dance music scene today, Knuckles' influence continues to spread among House enthusiasts throughout the world.
