Frankie Knuckles

Marking ten years since his passing, Defected will be honouring the legacy of Frankie Knuckles with a week of content dedicated to his career. Available now, all proceeds of ‘House Masters: Frankie Knuckles’ new vinyl release will be donated to Frankie Knuckles Foundation as it was when the compilation was originally released back in April 2015. In addition to the new vinyl pack will be a dedicated radio takeover and playlist, plus a special edition of Faith Magazine with 40 pages documenting his life and influence.

Frederick Dunson, Founder, President & Executive Director, Frankie Knuckles Foundation: “Frankie Knuckles, whom many consider to be one of the architects of house music is still highly influential to a new generation. Since his untimely passing 10 years ago it has been incredible to see the continued outpouring of love and respect that he has received. His legacy is why the Frankie Knuckles Foundation exists. Through our work we honour him by supporting initiatives that he was passionate about: music education, AIDS and diabetes research, prevention and LGBTQIA+ youth homelessness. This commemorative vinyl release of ‘House Masters’ in association with Defected will allow us to do just that!”  


The vinyl release which features a selection of his finest productions and remixes including ‘Your Love’, ‘The Whistle Song’ and remixes for Chaka Khan and Sounds Of Blackness, is available to order now exclusively at DStore.
