We are sad to report that House Music pioneer Frankie Knuckles has died. He was instrumental in the formation and popularization of Chicago House Music and had a great career as a producer. Chicago-based 5 Magazine reported that he passed away at home last night at age 52.

One of our favorite tracks, The Whistle Song, brings back warm memories. RIP.
