Frankie Knuckles – Beyond The Mix is a mixture of electronic, house, funk, soul, and spoken word. The album uses several layers of instruments on the instrumentals. The founding father of Chicago house is a genius for using multiple layers of instruments on the instrumentals. The album is a great collection of songs which showcase Frankie Knuckles range and style.
Party At My House uses a touch of funkiness which is overlapped by the sounds of electronic house music. The soft beats indicate this. Bass will be shaking the place as you hear his music from far away. Frankie Knuckles sure knows music when it come to house music. There’s a party upstairs at 206 South Jefferson Street in Chicago, Illinois.
Right Thing is one of Frankie Knuckles more well known songs which uses a tempo of 122 BPM. That is typical for songs from house music. The jam is perfect to work out to.
Rain Falls is a perfect song for the club due to the dance styled beats used. Frankie Knuckles uses multiple layers of beats on this song. Rain Falls is one of Frankie Knuckles more overlooked songs which house heads and the general public overlooked.
Sold On Love is a mid tempo love song which uses a tempo of 86 BPM. No, the song is not a slow jam. If that is what you were looking for or thinking, then you are sorely mistaken and will be disappointed. The song uses that 80s synthpop sound in the beats and synths. A piano solo is performed 3/4ths into the song.
Is it any wonder that there is not enough room for love to go around? It is any wonder that there is not enough love to go around? It doesn’t matter where, how, when, or why you find love. Any way you can find love, people will try to hide what they have found or discovered. So we are sold on love. Love is a matter of deep emotion. We’re sold on love.
You can feel love pulling on both directions at the same time. People cry when love falls apart. It’s a matter of deep emotion. We need more of love.
I rate this album 5/5*****!
