Dimitri From Paris(who was actually born in Istanbul) will release a new compilation that he has dedicated to “the recently deceased Godfather Of House, Frankie Knuckles.”

Dimitri started out hosting a radio show on the French station Radio 7 in the mid-’80s and has pursued his love of disco ever since. He readily admits that producing music isn’t a priority even though his artist album, Sacrebleu, was voted Mixmag’s album of the year in 1996; he considers himself a specialist DJ who focuses on overlooked sounds from yesteryear.His forthcoming mixIn The House Of Discois a double CD compilation featuring 37 tracks from the likes of Todd Terje, Chic and of course Frankie Knuckles, who Dimitri described as “a key person in the mutation of disco into house, he best described house music as ‘disco’s revenge.’”

In The House Of Discowill be released on June 15 through Defected.
