1979 - Frankie Knuckles at the Warehouse in Chicago

 

This recording of Frankie knuckles  would have been from 1979 at the legenday nightclub The Warehouse. However this is not likely, because the first track from Steve Harvey is from 1983. In that case it could not have been in the Warehouse, because he already left.

Knuckles was the DJ at the Warehouse nightclub in Chicago from 1977 to 1982. It is widely accepted that his style of DJing and his selection and the appeal of the Warehouse gave house music its name, although in the beginning, the word 'house' was used only in Chicago to denote something which was cool, hip, fresh or bad. Knuckles had been long time friends with Larry Levan, they had had their musical upbringing together from going to clubs like Loft and the Gallery.
