30 years since their creation, the unreleased Frankie Knuckles remixes of Electribe 101's deep cut "Heading For The Night" are finally unvaulted, available on 12" vinyl. UK based electronic group Electribe 101 and their one album, Electribal Memories, hold a legendary place in the annals of house and dance music. The band had also found ardent fans in the US, with chart-topping success on the US club charts and mixes from some of the most in-demand remixers of the day, including Chicago house doyennes Frankie Knuckles and Larry Heard. "Frankie had already done such an incredible job with 'Talking With Myself' and he was smitten with 'Heading For The Night", recalls Billie. "He enjoyed mixing it so much that he did six mixes, each one brilliant and soulful in its own way. His effortless and perfect vocal production while creating a more danceable version makes this another Knuckles masterpiece." While "Heading For The Night" had been considered for single release, these legendary remixes never saw the light of day. Finally, Frankie's work on this song finds its rightful place in both his and Electribe 101's legacy.
