Watch Frankie Knuckles’s Wavefront set with Jamie Principle from BE-AT.TV
Saturday’s Legends tent at Wavefront Music Festival in Chicago was a unique tribute to those who made Chicago house what it is, from start to finish. Ralphi Rosario, DIZ, Gene Farris, and Derrick Carter back-to-back Mark Farina all delivered beyond expectation, but it was Frankie Knuckles set at the end of the evening (including a thirty minute live performance from the first superstar Chicago house vocalist Jamie Principle) that defined the whole festival for some. The crowd was smiling from ear to ear and Frankie delivered hits like Kerri Chandler’s “Hallelujah”, Rhythim is Rhythim’s “Strings of Life,” and Marshall Jefferson’s “House Music Anthem” and for house heads old and new. Listen in to get a taste of true house classics.
