March 31, 2024 -

Defected celebrates the life and legacy of house music pioneer Frankie Knuckles with a limited-edition vinyl offering of his notable ‘House Masters’ release.

As Sunday 31st March 2024 marks 10 years since his passing, join Defected in honouring the enduring legacy of the house music pioneer, Frankie Knuckles, with a week of content dedicated to the legend’s illustrious career.

Available for pre-order on Monday 25th March, exclusively via DStore, all proceeds of ‘House Masters: Frankie Knuckles’ will be donated to the Frankie Knuckles Foundation, as it was when the compilation was originally released back in April 2015.

In addition to the new vinyl pack will be a dedicated radio takeover and playlist, plus a special edition of Faith Magazine with 40 pages documenting the maestro’s life and unparalleled influence.

“Frankie Knuckles, whom many consider to be one of the architects of house music is still highly influential to a new generation. Since his untimely passing ten years ago it has been incredible to see the continued outpouring of love and respect that he has received. His legacy is why the Frankie Knuckles Foundation exists. Through our work we honour him by supporting initiatives that he was passionate about: music education, AIDS and diabetes research, prevention and LGBTQIA+ youth homelessness. This commemorative vinyl release of ‘House Masters’ in association with Defected will allow us to do just that!” – Frederick Dunson, Founder, President & Executive Director, Frankie Knuckles Foundation

The forthcoming vinyl release, which features a selection of his finest productions and remixes including the seminal ‘Your Love’, ‘The Whistle Song’ and remixes for Chaka Khan and Sounds Of Blackness, will be available to order exclusively on DStore.
