Later this month, legendary dance label Junior Boy’s Own will release their full-length tribute to Frankie Knuckles to mark a year since the Chicago house maestro took the helm at the dancefloor in the sky. One prize catch comes from Underworld vs the Misterons, whose jittery take on ‘Baby Wants to Ride’, a Knuckles classic, pulses with a suppressed euphoria that gets under your skin. “Karl and I have always seen Frankie as the source,” says Underworld’s Rick Smith, “and we’re always swimming in his river.” A moving tribute, in both the emotional and physical senses, that you can listen to exclusively below. All proceeds go to the Frankie Knuckles Fund.
