On what would have been “The Godfather of House” 61st birthday, we thought to honor the legend of Frankie Knuckles with a selection of his 10 finest remixes.

Spanning decades, genre’s and mood, these selections show a side to Knuckles musical legacy, which may be overshadowed, given the prolific nature of his own original productions. Virtually a who’s who of dance music through the decades, everyone from disco icon Chaka Khan to the new era house of Satoshi Tomiie are covered.
