Take a peek inside Frankie Knuckles’ record collection

A video tour of the historic vinyl archive.

The Frankie Knuckles Foundation has offered a video teaser of The Godfather of House Music’s record collection, which now resides at Theaster Gates’s Stony Island Arts Bank in Chicago.

As well as housing the priceless collection, The Foundation was setup to keep Knuckles’ legacy in tact and advocate some of the causes he was passionate about, including music in school, LGBTQ youth homelessness, diabetes research and more.

“There are people that are transformed by this music,” says Theaster Gates. “I really want to make sure that no only is there is a really great home for these objects but really that this home allows for some of these conversations to grow.”
