On March 31st 2014 we were deeply saddened with the devastating news of Frankie Knuckles passing. Music lost one of it's true pioneers and for Dance Culture, one of the most inspiring creators who continued to influence the dance floor for almost 30 years.
Frankie Knuckles was due to perform for Inspired Presents on Sunday May 4th, after much thought and discussions with Frankie's management team at DEF Mix it was decided that we would proceed with the date. It is our absolute honour to be able to announce that David Morales will be joining us to play an Inspired, Influenced and Extended Classics set in honour of Frankie Knuckles, a celebration of his life.
We would like to thank DEF Mix, David Morales and Mn2s Agency for giving us this special opportunity. Inspired Presents will be donating part proceeds to one of the many charities to which Frankie dedicated his time, which will be announced over the next week.
As a working DJ, remixer, and producer for over 25 years, his accomplishments speak for themselves. Here are just a handful of those achievements: Grammy Award Winner, #1 Releases, remixes and production of over 500 tracks for Global Artists (Mariah Carey, Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson, Whitney Houston, to name but a few), the management and ownership of DEF Mix Productions along with his manager/partner Judy Weinstein, radio residencies, and world wide club residencies such as Pacha Ibiza
