LE BAIN: This record is probably the most famous record of Frankie Knuckles, and it is a collaboration between you and Frankie. You once said you wrote the song after hearing Frankie play at the Red Zone Def Mix party in 1990. Can you tell us about your memories of that night?Frankie Knuckles' "The Whistle Song"
(Sound Factory 12" Mix, 1991)
ERIC KUPPER: Frankie just blew me away that night. There was one song in particular that I hadn't heard before, so I remember asking Satoshi Tomiie if he knew what the track was. It turned out to be "The Warning" by Logic on Strictly Rhythm. Still a timeless classic. One of my other favorite tracks at the time was "The Poem" by Bobby Kondors. I loved the keyboard flute solo (played by Pater Daou). I'm pretty sure someone played the track that night, as it was still fresh in my head the next day. Then there was a piece of music I've loved since my childhood, by a French modern classical composer named Erik Satie, called "Gymnopedie #1."
