Track of The monTh Blonde - all cried ouT Blonde ascend to the next level with 'All Cried Out', released on 12th April It was his track, 'Real Joy' that pushed him into the limelight, and once you hear it, you'll understand why. It's an electro banger, with a well-constructed bassline and twisted bleeps. It hit top spot on the BBC Radio 1 dance chart and has been repeatedly played by many of the resident DJs. When Fono isn't busy creating a new breed of electro house, you'll catch him spinning tracks alongside some of the country's elite, usually in his hometown of Brighton, where he's resident at the late club Audio. Blasting his way onto the scene, Fono has set the foundations for a long career. Hammered on BBC Radio 1, named dropped by Axwell, and meeting with Chase & Status, it's fair to say that the future for Fono is looking bright. This commemorative release, out on April 26th, celebrates Frankie Knuckles' musical legacy. All profits go directly to the Frankie Knuckles Fund/Elton John Aids Foundation ones To WaTch fono l moffa alBum of The monTh defecTed presenTs house masTers frankie knuckles The project began in February 2014, with Frankie hand selecting the productions and remixes he wanted to include on a retrospective release of his illustrious career. On the sad news of his passing on 31 March 2014, the project was duly paused. Now, with the creation of The Frankie Knuckles Fund, the release will finally see the light of day. Frankie Knuckles left behind perhaps the greatest house music legacy that ever was or ever will be, having made dance music at a spiritual level for nearly four decades. The sound he created has been copied and adapted – but never bettered – by thousands of DJs and producers since. The tracklist for House Masters Frankie Knuckles includes many of the most influential and highly regarded records from the Grammy-winning producer, including 'Tears', 'Your Love', 'The Whistle Song' and 'Baby Wants To Ride'. These tracks are the very foundations of house music, and the fact that they sound as fresh and as innovative today demonstrates just how much he shaped the genre. Seminal remixes for Alison Limerick, Inner City, Chaka Khan, Hercules & Love Affair, First Choice and Pet Shop Boys also appear on the compilation.Quite simply, you cannot call yourself a house music fan if you haven't heard these tracks. The passing of Frankie Knuckles may have left a gaping hole in house, but the music lives on. This release, plus the sublime, previously unheard Frankie Knuckles BBC Essential Mix, is a fitting way to remember the great man. 26 Issue 74 / 2015 HOUSE/ tEcHnO the Music Got Me Claptone Feelings Josh Butler So Freakin tight (Remixes, Pt 1) Hannah Wants, Tough Love, S-Man tonight EP Voyeur HnnY Edits HNNY Jealousy Roisin Murphy connection Lancelot never Sleep Alone Kaskade All Gone Pete tong & Gorgon city Miami 2015 Various Wolfsbane (Extended Mix) Jonas Rathsman Impact EP Kiki, Max Chapman Fearing Love Jamie Jones, Lee Foss, Serge Devant neW releases More @ Capturing the heightened take on the scintillating summer vibes that made 'I Loved You' so popular, 'All Cried Out' underlines Blonde's ability to blend 90s house influences into contemporary crossover dance. Blonde – duo Adam Englefield and Jacob Manson – are joined on the track by American guest vocalist Alex Newell, who is signed to Atlantic Records in the States. The track is a certified house banger and has got us begging for summer to start. Having virtually soundtracked last summer with renowned festival sets at Glastonbury, Wireless, Global Gathering, Secret Garden Party and Creamfields, we cant wait for Blonde to dominate this year too.
