A Special House Party tribute to Godfather of HOUSE MUSIC, Frankie Knuckles. Gone from our lives on March 31st, into our souls on April 4th.
Musician Frankie Knuckles, known as the Godfather of House music, has died unexpectedly, it has been announced.
A pioneer of house - the sparse, electronic dance music that emerged from Chicago in the 1980s - Knuckles was just 59.
He moved to Chicago in the 1970s, just as disco was dying out, and pioneered a style of extending soul and R&B records by adding drum machine loops.
He made his name at The Warehouse (like Triangle, that is also a warehouse), a club in northern Chicago. "The people that used to hang out at The Warehouse coined the phrase 'House Music'," Knuckles said.
"At the time I was the only DJ in the city playing a sound that they heard nowhere else.
"So, when dance parties and regional DJs began popping up on the South Side of the city, to attract the same kind of audience that I had at The Warehouse.... they would advertise that they played 'House Music'."]
