Last year, we lost the great house music pioneer Frankie Knuckles. And on a new song, a crew of dance-music all stars have teamed up to pay Knuckles tribute by knocking out a new version of his iconic 1987 Jamie Princible collab “Baby Wants To Ride.” For the new single, Underworld have teamed up with fellow dance veterans Heller & Farley and the Misterons, and the new version wraps some of the slow-burn intensity of the original up in mid-‘90s rave sonics. All the proceeds from the single are going to the AIDS-fighting Frankie Knuckles Fund, which the Elton John AIDS Foundation established in Knuckles’ name. Listen to it below.
The “Baby Wants To Ride” 12” is out 3/31 on Junior Boy’s Own.
