Frankie Knuckles Explains House

RIP Frankie Knuckles.

Two, years to the day since we lost the legendary Frankie Knuckles, watch him explain house music in 1989

These days dance music documentaries are all the rage, but back in 1989 the vast majority of the population had never even heard of electronic music, never mind danced the night away to house music.

It's lucky then, that before MTV became preoccupied with the Kardashians and Jersey Shore, that they actually went out and made some television about music. This 27 minute episode of Soul In The City, takes us through the burgeoning scene, talking to the DJs that spearheaded the sound and the proto-ravers that formed the culture.

In the film, Frankie is joined by a host of his fellow trailblazers, including Byron Stingily, Ce Ce Rogers and our buddy, Todd Terry.

If your weekend plans are Netflix and chill rather than parties and thrills, this is definitely some recommended viewing.
