A TRIBUTE TO FRANKIE KNUCKLES

A TRIBUTE TO FRANKIE KNUCKLES Aside from Frankie Knuckles’s major contribution to the birth of House music he also loved Ibiza and he was a legend on the island; Def Mix ran at Pacha for many many years and was one of the fi rst major residencies in the modern era. Th e IMS partners have always had a special relationship with Frankie and his DEF MIX family so we wanted to celebrate his legacy in style. So on Th ursday 22nd May at Dalt Vila, I’m playing alongside Frankie’s long time mix partner David Morales and Hector Romero, where we will be doing a special tribute to the great man. Frankie also made the fi rst record I ever signed to my label FFRR - ‘Baby Wants To Ride’ by Jamie Principle (FFRR001 !) and we also signed ‘Tears’ his collaboration with Satoshi Tomiie and Robert Owens, so the connection is very special to me.

Looking ahead to summer 2014, I think this year will be a bit more focused. I think we will see DJ’s sticking more to their own parties and not turning up everywhere all the time. I think it’s accepted that last year got a bit too crazy, too many parties too much on off er and some places suff ered a bit. I’m happy to be back working with the Ushuaia team once again, with a series of Fridays at their new venue the Hard Rock Hotel and the occasional show at Ushuaia, although they won’t open both venue on Fridays, it will be one or the other. I’ll also be putting in appearances at Ants and with Solomon at Pacha and the beach BBQs return too. Th e Ushuaia EDM line up is like a weekly festival and it’s great to see Luciano back at Cocoon on the terrace every Monday. I’m sure DC10 and Music On will have big season’s too. It’s going to be fun see you under the stars...
