Frankie Knuckles' birthday honoured with remastered Robin S and Inaya Day duet by Director's Cut: Listen

Director's Cut was the collaborative project of Eric Kupper and the late Knuckles

SoSure Music is this week marking what would have been Frankie Knuckles' 67th birthday with the release of a track from the Director's Cut project, of which he formed one-half.

Around the time of Knuckles’ passing in March 2014, he and long-term studio collaborator Eric Kupper, who made up Director's Cut together, were producing a concept album for American singer Inaya Day. One of the tracks on the album, which remained unfinished upon his death, also featured Robin S and was titled 'Right Now'.

It appeared originally as an album exclusive on the 'Tales From Beyond The Tone Arm' compilation in 2012, but is now receiving a standalone release 10 years later to coincide with Knuckles' birthday. It's newly available now as a digital download, as well as on streaming platforms, with remixes and a 12" vinyl release set to arrive later in the year.

You can purchase the track here, and stream it below.

The release follows on from a newly discovered track by Knuckles, 'I Want The Love Of My Own', coming out last summer.

Last July, four of his unreleased remixes got a vinyl reissue and 5000 records from his collection went on display in a New York gallery.
