A never-heard-before Frankie Knuckles mix has been released on Soundcloud.
Recorded February 1986 in Chicago this live mix is over an hour long and filled with his classic soulful house sound.
The image of the mix shows the original cover naming it the ‘Valentine Session’ and that it was recorded at COD 1201 W. Devon Ave for PG ltd.
The mix comes straight from the archive of Chicago-based record producer and DJ Braxton Holmes.
Around the time of Knuckles’ passing, he and long-term studio collaborator Eric Kupper were producing a duet-concept album for Inaya Day.
With Knuckles’ birthday on January 18, one day after Day’s own birthday, ‘Right Now’ was released which you can listen to here.
