Hear an Unreleased Remix from the Late Frankie Knuckles
- Words: Glenn Jackson
The world of house music was dealt a huge blow earlier this year when the "Godfather" of the genre, Frankie Knuckles, unexpectedly passed away. Now, believed to be one of Knuckles' final remix commissions, a new rework from the Chicago-bred innovator is available to stream in full.
A collaborative effort alongside Eric Kupper, Knuckles remix of "Follow Your Heart"—a new track from UK pop veteran Holly Johnson, a former member of Frankie Goes to Hollywood—will see a release as part of the "Follow Your Heart" single package late next month (July 27, to be exact). For now, the uplifting, piano-led affair is the latest reminder of the enduring legacy the "Godfather of House" has left in his absence.
