Whilst the dance music world still mourns the sudden loss of its godfather and long-reigning monarch Frankie Knuckles on the 31st of March, numerous tribute parties have begun sprouting up globally, as promoters and punters alike feel the urge to show their respect in the way Frankie would have approved of best – coming together and dancing.
Of all the Frankie Knuckles tribute parties, the event presented by Inspired and hosted by Digital in Brighton on the 4th of May is sure to be one of the most memorable, and here’s why…
Frankie Knuckles was due to perform at the venue on the aforementioned May in Sunday, and after some discussion and deliberation with Frankie’s management team at DEF Mix it was decided that the party would still go on, with a new headline act in Frankie’s closest friend and equally successful musical colleague, David Morales. And not just any set, mind! Morales will be playing an Inspired, Influenced and Extended Classics set, to honour and celebrate the life and music of the late Frankie Knuckles.
Full Line up:
Pre-party @Neighbourhood from 6 onwards, with:
Affy Go Bang
Part of the proceeds will be donated to one of the many charities Frankie supported – the specific group to be announced soon. Let’ s make sure this amazing event is a sell-out, as it’s sure to be a memorable night for all present, not least of all Morales himself.
