It was a super long day of running around the city and prepping new episodes of The Collective on NUVOtv but once I got home it time to find new records and gems to air on the radio show at midnight. It as then I found out the passing of the Godfather Of House music Frankie Knuckles had passed away. It was a pretty heavy moment for a lot of us but I sat there not really believing it. In celebration of his life the final hour of the show is dedicated to his music. It’s also a free download! I hope you enjoy it as much as the opening track from Brazil’s Karol Conka! Also new Machine Drum, Curtis Mayfield X Circle Research, Mo Kolours, Fat Freddy’s Drop, Grace Jones X Ximeno and an exclusive listen of the new Speak record featuring LA songstress Nikko Gray.
