Frankie Knuckles

1955 - 2014

The dance music community mourns the passing of legendary DJ

It was with the deepest regret we learned of Frankie Knuckles passing earlier today

We would like to express our immense sadness over the passing of Frankie Knuckles. He was a truly legendary figure, a pioneer of the house music revolution, and without him we wouldn’t exist. 

Frankie played to a packed main room at the club on Saturday proving why he was one of the most loved DJs on the scene. Our thoughts are with Frankie’s friends and family.

He was a regular headliner throughout our 22 year history, he always delivered consistently excellent performances and will be sorely missed by everyone at Ministry of Sound and the wider dance community.

Although Frankie is no longer with us, his music lives on and we'd like to share our fond memories of the house music legend. 

First up is a video from the DEF Mix 25th anniversary party and secondly, a live set recorded way back in our first year as a club.
