V2 warehouseRadio New York Floor presents : In memory of  Frankie Knuckles. The American DJ and record producer Frankie Knuckles played a major role in the emergence of electronic music, and particularly in the birth of house music, a style that he diffused from the end of the 1970s in the underground clubs of Chicago. . Frankie Knuckles, whose real name is Francis Nicholls, was born on January 18, 1955 in the Bronx district of New York. Like his friend and mentor Larry Levan, he began his DJ career in this city, where he mixed in clubs frequented by an African-American, gay and Latino public. In 1977, when the popularity of disco fell, he left for Chicago, where he became, for five years, the resident DJ of the club The Warehouse. The city of Chicago was then marked by the influence of German electronic music groups such as Kraftwerk or Can. Frankie Knuckles is known there for his innovative selections, whose titles, with varied styles and built partly from synthesized sounds, have in common to be supported by a powerful bass and fast rhythms. He connects the pieces, mixes them and uses the techniques of sampling and scratching. The club soon attracted a large audience and this new style, called "house" (name derived from Warehouse), spread as far as Europe. Frankie Knuckles becomes one of the most influential trendsetters in electronic music. From the 1980s, he performed all over the world as well as in his own club, the Power Plant, founded in 1982. Frankie Knuckles' work as a producer includes singles such as Your Love (1987) and The Whistle Song (1991). He has remixed hits by Michael Jackson, Mary J. Blige and even Hercules and Love Affair, and founded with DJ David Morales Def Mix Productions, one of the main house labels. He died on March 31, 2014 in Chicago.a finest choice from Soulful to House Music, and Disco from selected Deejays and labels worldwide, Warehouse radio show inside the radio New York Floor .
