    So bummed about this. Godfather of House. Took the sound of Larry Levan and helped propel it into what we know as "True House Music".

    His contribution to music, let alone House music is an incredible legacy. His influence on countless DJs, musicians, and other artists will live on long past all of us. If there is a "better place" after this life, it is surely grooving tonight.

    Only just found out. Genuinely sad to hear this. Met him a number of times and he was always a gentle soul with a true passion for the music and giving the best of himself for others to enjoy. His original music and remixes will live on forever. RIP Frankie.
