Known as ‘The Godfather Of House’, Frankie Knuckles had a career that spanned over four decades, his catalogue combines a wide range of releases and projects that were pivotal to the movement of house music.
In the later years of his career, Director’s Cut was one project that Frankie worked on with Eric Kupper; his long-time studio collaborator and close friend and around the time that Frankie passed, both he and Eric were producing a duet-concept album for Inaya Day.
One particular highlight on the (ultimately unfinished) LP paired two of house music’s most iconic voices, Inaya Day and Robin S., on a track entitled ‘Right Now’. Originally released as an album exclusive on ‘Tales From Beyond The Tone Arm’ compilation in 2012, ‘Right Now’ is a smoothed out vocal work.
In celebration of Frankie Knuckles’ birthday, just one day after Inaya’s own birthday, the track is released as SoSure Music continue their curation and legacy of the Director’s Cut project into 2022.
