HENRY interweaves clips from a conversation between FRANKIE KNUCKLES + his mentor NICKY SIANO (of THE GALLERY + STUDIO 54 fame), taken from the new film “Love is the Message”, into a mix of KNUCKLE’s greatest productions + remixes, plus rare edits and covers of his work. the bronx-born DJ and producer FRANKIE KNUCKLES is one of the most singularly important figures in dance music. getting his start under NICKY SIANO at NYC’s legendary proto-disco club THE GALLERY, KNUCKLES went on to DJ with LARRY LEVAN at the CONTINENTAL BATHS before moving to chicago’s WAREHOUSE club in 1977, to define the sound which gave “house music” it’s name. LEVON went on to be the creative mastermind of NYC’s PARADISE GARAGE, which gives the genre “garage” it’s name. KNUCKLES started his own POWER PLANT club in 1982, where his innovative tape re-edits of disco classics, use of a live drum machine and inclusion of chicago new electronic productions in his sets, forged the blueprint for house music, popularizing it in chicago and then the rest of the world. KNUCKLES passed away suddenly in his chicago home 31 march 2014 due to complications from diabetes. RIP to the godfather of house. [aired 04 april 2014]
