Each year, 25 August marks Frankie Knuckles Day and to celebrate the occasion and the history of the classic ‘The Whistle Song’, Eric Kupper himself via Hysteria and in collaboration with the Frankie Knuckles Foundation and SoSure Music, has reproduced and remastered the original demo mix that he handed to Frankie on tape in a studio session all those years ago, for a special one-sided release. The duo were friends, production partners and long-time writing collaborators for over 25 years.
