The Godfather of House music, Frankie Knuckles, passed away yesterday afternoon, March 31st, at the age of 59. It is believed he died due to complications with type II diabetes.
Frankie Knuckles was a successful NYC disco DJ in the 70’s, and as disco began to struggle, Knuckles opened his own club in Chicago, The Warehouse, where he could play his own style of music. His first forays involved remixing his favorite tracks simply to extend their length, giving world and soul music the traditional disco treatment. This latter-day disco fused with soul and became its own genre, so strongly associated with the Warehouse that it was dubbed House music. As his music grew in popularity and reputation, the black, gay audience of the Warehouse became increasingly white and straight, and Knuckles left in 1982.
