A New Frankie Knuckles Track Is Set To Be Released After Its Discovery In The Archives

‘I Want The Love Of My Own’ was discovered in the vaults of the Chicago Legend

A new Frankie Knuckles track has been discovered and will be released.

The new cut has been extracted from the reel-to-reel tape from the late house pioneer’s early studio sessions in the 1980s.

‘I Want The Love Of My Own’, was discovered in the archives of the Chicago DJ legend.

Previously unheard and unreleased, the single has been restored and converted from cassette since its initial recording, over 30 years ago, and mixed by Knuckles’ collaborator Eric Kupper.

The announcement of the hidden gem and its expected release date dropped on the 25th of August. This date is AKA Frankie Knuckles Day, an annual day of celebration of the Chicago legend. The history of this day dates back to 2004 when a street in Chicago was renamed Frankie Knuckles Way. It also marked the date that the city officially recognised his contributions to electronic music and declared that 25th August would forever be known as Frankie Knuckles Day.

The track represents the only hidden and unreleased piece of material, previously untouched. October will mark the delivery of the cut to celebrate the 35th anniversary of his 1986 debut release, ‘You Can’t Hide’.

Widely known as the godfather of house music, Knuckles died in 2014, aged 59.
