Frankie Knuckles Mixes

Frankie Knuckles

Frankie Knuckles’ nearly five year stint at the Warehouse had a huge influence on Chicago’s dance music scene. Robert Williams encouraged Knuckles to move from New York to Chicago in 1977 to headline his new after-hours juice bar, the Warehouse, at 206 S. Jefferson Street. Knuckles became famous for spinning disco edits alongside the latest underground cuts.

In December 1982, Knuckles moved to the Power Plant just as local producers started making recordings. There Knuckles began collaborating with Jamie Principle on a series of songs, the first of which were issued on Persona Records. The Power Plant closed suddenly in late 1985, after which Knuckles spun briefly for WBMX, Medusa’s, Coconuts, and Gallery 21. In 1987, with house music climbing the British pop charts, Knuckles left for London. After a few months, he returned to New York and to focus on production work as part of Def Mix, ultimately winning a Grammy for Remixer of the Year in 1997.

Below are tracklists compiled from early mixes found at deephousepage.com. They illustrate the wide range of music Chicago youth called “house.” Additions and corrections are welcome.
