Frankie Knuckles listen to Chicago classics and gives us great insight

I just thought I had to pass along that sweet little resident advisor Frankie Knuckles interview that just gives us so much insight into what Chicago House and Djing are in so little words.

Highlights :

“Ronny (Ron Hardy) did all of his stuff on a cassette deck, he pause edited everything. Erasmo and I sat behind a reel-to-reel with grease pencil and splicing blocks. And we cut everything. Ronny didn’t know how to do that or didn’t have the patience to learn it.”

“Jamie (Principle) wrote all of those songs for the girl that he was in love with at the time—her name was Lisa, a beautiful young girl.”

“I have Hercules & The Love Affair to thank for getting me back to my first love. Correction, not my first love, my real love.”

If you don’t know who Frankie Knukles is, do yourself a favour and listen to this piece of raw heaven, discussed in the ITW.

RIP Trish Keenan

The unbelievable and sad news just came to us that Trish Keenan of Broadcast has died of pneumonia friday jan. 14 at age 42.

We did not expect to start this blog with such a sad news. Broadcast was and still is one of the bands we like the most, some of us following them since the first years. We were always eager to hear any new work and air it. We will miss bitterly Trish and Broadcast.

Still, we’ll continue to highlight and “promote” the fringe music we like in the same fashion we’ve been crusading for the past 15 years or so, and you can be sure it’s not the last you heard of Broadcast alonside the likes of Bernard Parmegiani, This Heat, Bruno Menny, Larry Heard, Monoton, Kid Creole, Conny Plank, Chep Nunez, Tod Dockstader, LFO, Eliott Sharp, Latin Rascals, Don Cherry, Konrad Becker, Arthur Russell, Robert Gordon, Henri Chopin, Mantronix, the Galactic Mothership, Pietro Grossi, Jean Schwarz, B.W.H., Prince, Rodney Bakerr, Nino Nardini, Sabu Martinez, Roland Kayn, Manix, Ralph Lundsten, Konk, Autechre, Eberhard Schoener, John Bender, Mike Dunn, Pierro Umiliani, Jean Cohen-Solal, Derrick May, Patrick Cowley, Todd Terry, Cluster, Transmat, Soundforce, Spoils Of War, Mark Imperial, Seefeel, Ron Hardy, Annette Peacock, Walter Gibons, Stockhausen, Crass, Maurice Joshua, Steve Lacy, NWW, Ennio Morricone, Phoenecia, Cliff Martinez, Falty DL, Dream Frequency, Pram, Frankie Knuckles, Traxx, Michel Portal, Anthony Manning, Roger Sanchez, MK, Mr Lee, Chrome, Farley “Jackmaster” Funk, Roberto Cacciapaglia, Larry Levan, Sheila Jordan, Kenny Dope, Ubangi, Mark E, Patrick Cowley, Hosono, Terry Housemaster Baldwin, Coil, Bo Didley, James Asher, TinMan, Robbie Basho, Lidell Townsell, Julio Bashmore
