Happy Birthday Frankie Knuckles and Martin Luther King


Frankie Knuckles, Jan 18th, 1955.


 It's a tradition today that I would be recovering from an 8 hr. dance marathon from attending the yearly Body & Soul's Martin Luther King celebration dance event. Obviously didn't happen, so instead of sharing the previous night's events. I'm sharing this amazing Frankie Knuckles Tribute mix created by Tedd Patterson. When I was a grad student at Parson's, I will make my pilgrimage every Friday to the Sound Factory Bar and hear his live sets. It was church and it was home. Last time I was lucky to hear him play live was at the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Community Center in 2012. I recalled it was a very intimate party for Bears. Unforgettable! Happy Birthday! Life is Something Special!

Top Boy



Ok...going out on a limb here. Brian Eno's music has always hit a nerve. Here is remix using his song Top Boy (Series 1) with a nice backbeat I created. Don't even ask me about the cover...lol. There is a Paula White version too..lol.

The Ha Dance


I've always wanted to toy around this seminal voguing anthem "The Ha Dance" by Masters At Work and see the possibilities. Added some strings for dramatic effect and the all so famous house chants from Kraze's "The Party" Enjoy!

I Want You / Fever

I don't normally remix Madonna much but this one was calling my name upon hearing recently her mid 90's compilation CD  of ballads "Something To Remember".  Her cover of Marvin Gay's "I Want You" wasn't so bad and  I'm pleased how it's holds up pretty well thus this remix segueing into her other famous cover of "Fever".

Enjoy,
