Frankie Knuckles 'BBC Radio 1's Essential Mix'

Frankie Knuckles 'BBC Radio 1's Essential Mix'
Last April, house pioneer Frankie Knuckles unexpectedly passed away at the age of 59. One year later, his legacy is still being honoured. There was the recent announcement of his House Masters anthology then the tribute to his "Baby Wants to Ride" single from Underworld and Heller & Farley. Up next, BBC Radio 1 has shared two hours' worth of mixes from the late performer.

The lengthy program comprises two mixes. The first half was recorded live, straight from two turntables at a special event in Shoreditch, London. Then there's a proper, in-studio mix.

The set includes some of Knuckles' own cuts, along with music from Travey K, Teddy Pendergrass, John Julius Knight and others.

Frankie Knuckles' full, two-hour BBC Radio 1 mix is available to stream here.
