1. “Your Love” by Frankie Knuckles / Jamie Principle
First recorded by Jamie Principle (hailing from—yep—Chicago), the “Godfather of House” Frankie Knuckles made the track famous with his slightly punchier version, still featuring Principle. The arpeggiated synth-line that introduces the track signals something special is about to happen, and over seven-and-a-half minutes it certainly does, marrying a heartfelt electronic love song with heady dancefloor bliss – something that so many house tracks strive for but so few achieve. It’s been covered and reworked by many, but Knuckles and Principle’s version is the one that has rightly gone down in dance music history.
