Frankie Knuckles’ first remix to be reissued on Dark Entries
The Chicago house originator’s 1985 rework of ‘I’m Going To Go’ has been remastered for a new 12″.
The remix in question is Knuckles’ 1985 rework of ‘I’m Going To Go’, a track written by Milan producer Michele Violante in 1983 for his studio project, Jago. According to Dark Entries, the instrumental version became a hit in New York thanks to Larry Levan, who played it regularly at the Paradise Garage.
Jago’s label Full Time asked Knuckles – who was then running the Power Plant club in Chicago – to rework the track, which predated even the release of his massive ‘Your Love’ single with Jamie Principle. The eight-minute ‘Plant Mix’ as it was called, was erroneously credited to “Frankye Knuckles” on the original version.
The reissued remix features on a remastered 12″ pressing later in August along with the original vocal version and instrumental. It arrives on Dark Entries together with a number of other reissues, including two 12″s from the production duo of Gianluigi “Gigi” Farina and Francesco Rago and Belgian trio Zwischenfall.
Dark Entries’ reissue isn’t the only vintage Knuckles production to have been dusted off for a new audience since his death in 2014. In 2015, Knuckles and Jamie Principle’s ‘Boyz!’ got its first ever vinyl pressing.
