  • RIP. Not many people know that house music is as black as any other
    genre of music.

      I was just about the write something like that. I often see people (of various races ) saying “look how white people claimed rock n roll, the same thing will happen with rap music”…….The same thing happened with house music…Most of my friends who are huge fans of house music, have no freakin clue how it all started.

    well damn..learn something new every day..RIP to this brother

  • i am glad i met him when i did on the way to the 519 one fine afternoon to snag the gig for the Ryerson Quad party that my hypertermia and infamation kept me away from , but all the tweets told us bout the heat and the haute beats he brought ! He was supposed to play again this 2014. This is what is happening to the old school dancehall and warehouse party people;AND THE ROCKERS AND PUNKER S ALSO besides the JAZZ GREATS ….and Hollywood…….the industry eats its own inovators and creators of the original movement, then within a promotion of a promotion they remake and redo it all over again ! LOL! But nobody could throw it down and mix it up like FRANKIE KNUCKLES AT A WAREHOUSE PARTY…those of us who were there are greatly shocked and saddened by this news today .
