KINGS TOP TRACK - CLASSIC HOUSE - JAZZY SOULFUL HOUSE - JAZZY HOUSE - WAVs + MP3s

On Frankie Knuckles birthday date 18th January, Wake Up! Music and The Shamanic (Ralphi Rosario and Craig J Snider) present their gloriously produced tribute to Frankie Knuckles "FK Always."

Frankie Knuckles was the global Godfather of House music, and a longtime friend and mentor to the Shamanic , as well as to hundreds of DJ/Producers worldwide. “FK Always” is an homage to him, and to the indelible legacy he left that will be passed on for generations to come.

The orchestration of “FK Always” happened as it should: organically. Ralphi states: "Craig and I were working on a new track for our debut Shamanic LP, and as we were putting together the initial programming/drum work, we realized, one track lent itself to a Frankie Knuckles production. From there, we approached DJ Lady D (from Chicago) to write a few words about the man we considered our hero; then asked Frankie’s Director’s cut partner & right hand man, Eric Kupper, to add his own flair.

At that point, it was time to hear from the man himself: We integrated Frankie’s quotes that he had given about his craft and philosophy of music, capturing the essence of who he was and his musical genius. The final result was a labor of love, a seamless and magical tribute, and a permanent record of our gratitude and awe for the larger-than-life Frankie Knuckles." Frankie will live forever; “FK Always.”

The Shamanic - FK Always
(Craig J. Snider, Ralphi Rosario, Darlene Jackson)

FK Always
If you’ve got some kind of focus
That’s the thing that saves your life and the thing
that saves your life, is the thing that you should always concentrate on
I’d rather be tucked away in a corner somewhere and feeding you what I’ve got
Take it or leave it
I’m just really feeling this and I’m just really caught up in it

FK Always
It's more about what you play not how you play
All these years of playing and all the music that I’ve
had to play is all stuck back here
This sensibility and the approach towards each
particular song and the way I’ve played it over the years
and stuff like that, pretty much feeds into what I have
to deal with now that’s current and I still apply the same thing

FK Always
Some guys have got to be out front
And they have to have all of this
And they need to put on a show
I’d rather the music speak for itself
Cause not everybody has good taste in music
But those who do... Shine
Not everybody has good taste in music
But those who do...
Shine
