Issue #126 of 5 Magazine is now available.
In honor of his birthday and the upcoming benefit on January 17, we elected to dedicate this entire issue to stories about Frankie Knuckles.
Inside this issue:
The Final Cuts: Eric Kupper collaborated on more tracks with Frankie Knuckles than probably any other person alive. We talked to Eric about the creation of their final project, “Director’s Cut,” the material left behind and a working relationship that stretched all the way back to 1989.
The Frankie Knuckles Foundation: Formed a year ago, the FKF is charged with supporting and preserving the legacy of Frankie and advocating on his behalf and for the causes he supported in life. We talked to Frederick Dunson, founder, president and executive director of the Foundation as well as executor of Frankie’s estate about what the Foundation does and what they’re planning for the future.
Frankie & 5 Mag: In His Own Words: Over the course of 8 years, 5 Magazine interviewed Frankie no less than 7 times – often wide-ranging conversations full of his philosophy on DJing, fame, life and music. We culled some selections from these pieces we’ve done with Frankie in print, online and in video.
Foundations: DEL’s monthly column on the roots of Dance Music talks about the legacy of Frankie Knuckles with an array of figures in the dance music scene, including Leroy Burgess, Ray Caviano, Mr. V, Nickodemus, Chuck Love and more.Digital Subscription Digital Download Get It In Print
