SoSure Music continue their commemoration of ‘The Godfather of House’ Frankie Knuckles and the productions he created with long time writing partner Eric Kupper as ‘Director’s Cut’, looking now to their 2011 hit ‘I’ll Take You There’ featuring Jamie Principle. Alongside the much sought-after 'Director’s Cut Classic Signature Mix', this 12 inch sees three top-tier producers add their trademark touch to Frankie and Eric’s certified anthem.
With copies of the original release fetching upwards of £100 on Discogs, many will be delighted to see the club-ready bomb from The Shapeshifters and the Dimitri From Paris re-edit (from the 2011 original release) included on this reissue. To complete the package, SoSure Music have also enlisted the expertise of Italian edit cornerstone, Moplen, to sprinkle his magic on a brand-new edit for 2019. Drenched in luscious organs (courtesy of Dom Scuteri), Moplen expertly re-works the original with an extra slice of spiritual goodness.

A never before released version of a truly, legendary house record from the late great Frankie Knuckles…working in collaboration with The Frankie Knuckles Foundation who will receive 50% of the profits from this project, SoSure Music is proud to present the Director’s Cut re-production of ‘Baby Wants To Ride’. Alongside this, a vinyl exclusive edit by Jimmy Edgar, which was originally a tribute release after Frankie’s passing in 2014, finally gets an official release.
2011 saw the launch of Frankie and long-time production partner Eric Kupper’s ‘Director’s Cut’ project, with the aim to release new music, whilst re-producing classic cuts to fit with the modern dancefloor. SoSure Music is now working alongside Eric Kupper and Hector Romero, with the blessing of both Def Mix and The Frankie Knuckles Foundation, to bring a renewed focus to some of this material.
First up, the illustrious, evocative 1987 anthem, ‘Baby Wants To Ride’. Rightly regarded as a masterpiece of early Chicago house and a pioneering classic through and through. Knuckles and Kupper extend the intro and outro to allow for those sweeping blends, whilst adding deft touches and reprogrammed lines to give a crisper, more detailed feel to this sumptuous slice of definitive house music. Couple that with newly spiritualised vocals and fresh erotic ad libs from Jamie Principle and prepare to rekindle that infectious energy 32 years down the line.
On the B side, Jimmy Edgar showcases his trademark touch to provide a fresh spin on the original whilst staying true to its essence. Reworking the arps, adding atmospheric drops and crunchy percussive elements, whilst holding off on the iconic vocal till the last section, all combine to give this version a unique, big room character that nods to the past, yet reinterprets for the present. A fitting tribute from an artist whose own productions are clearly laced with influence from Frankie Knuckles.
