I'm afraid I've never heard of him. The electronic rhythm on this track sounds a bit like a speeded up tubular bells, to me.
No I guessed many of my readers wouldn't, but he was the father of the "House music" generation - a genre you may be pleased to learn scared the establishment no end. As demonstrated by the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994 http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1994/33/contentsNotable and infamously Section 63 banning music which "includes sounds wholly or predominantly characterised by the emission of a succession of repetitive beats."http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1994/33/section/63
"includes sounds wholly or predominantly characterised by the emission of a succession of repetitive beats.", but obviously not including Philip Glass.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5DkvQL_pNbsI've never heard of Frankie Knuckles either.I felt a bit of a twinge when Don Partridge cashed his chips in a few years back.
Such a great DJ / Producer, he made some great tracks, i can't get enough of this Your Love track, proper good music from such a legendary icon R.I.P Frankie Knuckles
That is not my cup of tea give me Van Morrison every time!!
An excellent tune to be sure.
