Boyz! by Frankie Knuckles feat. Jamie Principle
Def Mix join forces with SoSure Music to release Boyz! from the late Frankie Knuckles, accompanied by remixes from David Morales and Farley & Heller.
The release kicks off with the Farley & Heller Dub of ‘Boyz!’ and sees the British duo deliver a low-slung slice of house fuelled by chugging organ grooves, raw crunchy rhythms, and hooky loops of the original vocal licks.
The first time I heard this song, it truly made me smile. I know it made Frankie smile as well - and I know he's smiling now, seeing its release. It is an honor and a pleasure to be a part of this record. - Eric Kupper
The ‘Director’s Cut Master’ follows and sees Knuckles fuse electro bass hooks with direct 4/4 rhythms alongside an amalgamation of infectious vocal layers from Jamie Principle. Lastly, to round off the package, David Morales delivers a take on things under his ‘Red Zone’ guise, offering up a dark and brooding interpretation with menacing synth drones, a swelling sub-bass hook, and robust drums.
I'm humbled and honored to be part of this project and to finally let the world hear 'Boyz!'. It's a timeless tune that's gonna cater to many fans, especially with the wide range of remixes that are released on vinyl. Long live Frankie and the talented Jamie Principle! - Hector Romero
"Boyz!" is released via Def Mix Music / SoSure Music exclusively on vinyl only on 30th November 2015, with a digital release to follow in 2016. A share of the profits on this release will be split between The Frankie Knuckles Foundation and The Frankie Knuckles Fund (Elton John Aids Foundation).
