Frankie Knuckles, the Chicago house legend, has died aged 59.

Knuckles died on Monday, revealed his longtime business partner, Frederick Dunson. According to the Chicago Tribune, more details would be confirmed today, with Dunson writing in an email that Knuckles “died unexpectedly this afternoon at home”.

Most famous for tracks such as 1987's Your Love and 1991's The Whistle Song, he was inducted into the Dance Music Hall of Fame in 2005. In 2004, 25 August was declared Frankie Knuckles Day in Chicago with help from then-senator Barack Obama.

One of the legendary house pioneers.

Although you have to admit putting the these lyrics over it worked to perfection.

He gets full credit in Grand Theft Auto San Andreas for his original version.... from the presenter 'Hans Oberlander' on radio-station SF-UR as the track is played in. (Still thousands of players who play the Multi-Player version of that game, including myself on occasion, hearing that track each time.)

"Here's the Godfather of house music, Herr Frankie Knuckles yahh. Take it away Frank - I'm starting to peak."
