Underworld and Heller & Farley join forces...
Junior Boy's Own

A true giant of house music, Frankie Knuckles passed away just over a year ago.

With his loss still being felt throughout club culture, Junior Boy's Own is to release a special tribute to the producer.

The legendary collective are active once more, with Undeworld due to team up alongside Heller & Farley to re-work 'Baby Wants To Ride'.

Released digitally and on 12 inch vinyl, this new version of the seminal track is being released for charity with all funds being donated to the Frankie Knuckles Fund – part of the Elton John AIDs Foundation.

A selection of quotes:

"My relationship with Frankie goes back a long way. Twenty-five years ago, Frankie championed the early music Pete Heller and I made and many of the first releases on Junior Boy's Own. He helped turn a group of suburban London music fans into DJs and producers who could travel the world, simply by his patronage." Terry Farley  

"As the creator of house music we owe Frankie a huge debt. Karl and I have always seen Frankie as the source and, as Underworld, we're always swimming in his river." Rick Smith (Underworld)  

"When difficult decisions had to be made at the label, I'd often ask myself, "What would Frankie do?' This meant we should approach the problem with love and respect for the music as our first concern." Steven Hall (Junior Boy's Own)  

"It's fabulous. I have always LOVED Underworld. This is a great track and tribute to Frankie. Thanks to everyone involved from me and everyone at the Elton John AIDS Foundation." Sir Elton John  (Elton John AIDS Foundation)
