Frankie Knuckles 'Director's Cut Collection Part II' to be released on vinyl

Part two the Frankie Knuckles 'Director's Cut Collection' is being released on vinyl.

Frankie, aka the Godfather House, did a lot writing and production work with Erik Kupper, eventually branding themselves as Director’s Cut in 2011. Using this alias, they worked on a number remixes and original tunes, some which were released on the first edition ‘Director’s Cut Collection’ back in May.

Part two the collection will be released on September 6 SoSure Music, with the album featuring re-rubs tunes by Inaya Day, Sybil, Hardsoul, Lou Rawls, and the re-directed version Jamie Principle’s Baby Want’s to Ride’. There's also Director's Cut mixes tracks by Soulful Session, Hardsoul and Spencer Parker & Dan Beaumont.

'Director's Cut Collection Part II' will be released in collaboration with The Frankie Knuckles Foundation, a non-prit organisation that seeks to carry on his legacy through initiatives such as LGBTQ youth homelessness, music in schools, and AIDS research.

The album comes out after Frankie Knuckles Day which takes place on August 25.
