Known and loved as The Godfather Of House’, Frankie Knuckles pioneering sound inspired a movement of love across dance floors from The Warehouse in Chicago and beyond. With a career that spanned over 4 decades, his catalog combines a wide range of releases and projects that were pivotal to the movement of house music and ultimately changed the course of dance music forever.

In the later years of his career, Director’s Cut was one project that Frankie worked on with Eric Kupper; his long-time studio collaborator and close friend, and around the time that Frankie passed, both he and Eric were producing a duet-concept album for Inaya Day. One particular highlight on the (ultimately unfinished) LP paired two of house music’s most iconic voices, Inaya Day and Robin S., on a track entitled ‘Right Now’. Originally released as an album exclusive on Tales From Beyond The Tone Arm compilation in 2012, ‘Right Now’ is a smoothed-out vocal masterwork.

Below, the all-star trio breakdown of the process of bringing this project to life for another installment of How It Was Made.
