DJ Spinna Frank Knuckles Tribute Mix

I'm not the biggest House fan, so a lot of these Frank Knuckles tributes are flying right over my ignant head. If you're like me, then I suggest you listen to this mix. Highly recommended listening if you want to pay tribute to a legend, but are not necessarily educated enough in House music to appreciate what Frank Knuckles created. Description, tracklist, and part 2 of the mix after the jump.

Music world lost another extremely important pioneer, our beloved Godfather of House, Frankie Knuckles. May he rest in everlasting peace. As the world mourns his passing it's important that we celebrate the movement that he's created. From House to Electronic Dance Music we owe all the praise to Frankie Knuckles. It's icons like Frankie (The Warehouse), Larry Levan (Paradise Garage), David Mancuso (The Loft) and Nicky Siano (The Gallery) that established dance music culture during the 70's and 80's in NYC and Chicago which ultimately changed the face of nightlife across the globe. The message was always in the music. Dancing was the key of life. What you're about to listen to is a direct reflection of these pioneers via records they loved and played with lots of Frankie Knuckles productions and remixes throughout. His music raised me. Records like "Tears" and the "Whistle Song" have never left my crates. He will be sorely missed but the music lives on.

At No Limits the idea is to continue the legacy of good music across the board with no boundaries, the way things used to be and should remain. Note, this is a live set, crowd noise will be heard throughout. Enjoy!
