hi friends! it has been a few weeks, due to events at (drips), but here we are!
this week was a weird one with the passing of the godfather of house music frankie knuckles. i have been listening to all kinds of tributes to him this week, and hearing his music quite a bit. it has brought up a lot of feelings about where i am, and the relationship of my location to the rest of the house music community. i feel like a passing of someone as important to our community is a reminder that we are all connected, and we are all family. so thank you for being party of my life, and my family!
instead of playing the same tunes as everyone else this week, i decided to just shoot from the cuff and let the house flow through me, as it does… i ended up not playing a single frankie tune, but that’s ok… i went with my heart, and ended up playing important classics to me.
i started out with the kind of music i was jamming out with 15 years ago, and ended up with the sound that i am pushing more now. all of it is relative and completely makes sense in the scope of the music.
house music will always be in my life. because house music is my life. thank you to frankie knuckles for the light that lights my path.
