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 it's 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 releasing 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 the profits on this release will be split between The Frankie Knuckles Foundation and The Frankie Knuckles Fund (Elton John Aids Foundation).
