Frankie Knuckles 10 Years Gone

Frankie Knuckles is 10 years gone today.

I can’t overstate too much the significance of this man’s impact on the formation of house music, and the electronic music genre as a whole. I feel a great sense of gratitude for how his productions helped shape my early musical viewpoints, and still do to this day.

This particular track was originally recorded by Jamie Principle and released in 1986, it would have been classed as one of the first house tracks.

Knuckles played the record to death in his sets and it quickly gathered serious momentum in the clubs.

A year later Trax Records signed the song which Knuckles then reproduced and his name was added as the artist and Principle the songwriter.

The track is possibly most recognisable to the younger audience from the main sample that was borrowed from it to create The Source & Candi Staton’s massive worldwide smash hit “You Got The Love” in 1989

This is just one of life’s iconic music pieces and one of hundreds of reasons that fully establish the well deserved tag that Frankie Knuckles gained as “The Godfather Of House”

A NIGHT OF LEGENDS, goes from strength to strength.

A NIGHT OF LEGENDS, goes from strength to strength.

Plans are coming together rapidly for what could be described as one of the biggest ever line-ups of DJ talent from across the dance music scene in N.Ireland.

Physical paper tickets are now available from our online store, and direct from our Banbridge building.


The event, named A Night Of Legends was announced in December and was created to raise much needed funds to help a much loved DJ who has contributed over 25 years of service to dance-floors across Ireland.

Paper tickets are now available to purchase from Belfast Underground HERE

Next day delivery is available via Royal Mail 1st Class post, or collection is available on Saturdays between 12pm - 5pm from Belfast Underground's Banbridge store.

Fergie McWilliams / DJ Fergie / DJ Fergie Freeman has been an important part of the DJ scene in Northern Ireland for nearly 3 decades.

Fergie suffered a brain injury a while back, resulting in many life problems, which include no longer being able to walk unaided and loss of speech. This has affected his life in so many ways that are unimaginable for someone of such big character.

Known for his love of BIG tunes and the uplifting styles of electronic music, Fergie gained thousands of fans and friends through his many club residencies and hundreds of mix tapes back in the day.

His best mates initially set up a GO FUND ME page to help out with their dear friend’s many complex needs and they have raised almost £3,000. This initial funding was raised to secure the necessary funds to purchase an electric wheelchair to aid and help in his continued rehabilitation.

Response from the DJ community was instant!

So, for one night only Sat May 4th 2024 the lads are asking that you join them for a night of seriously big tunes as they come together to support our dear friend and talented DJ who is facing incredibly tough times due to his illness.

RIP Mallorca Lee

RIP Mallorca Lee

The world of electronic rave music has lost one of its favourite hardcore sons.

Ultra-Sonic founder, front man, producer and globetrotting DJ, Mallorca Lee has died just weeks after announcing his terminal diagnosis. He was 51.

His first heartfelt social media post revealing his illness, left thousands of fans around the world stunned and in complete shock. The post stated that he had months to live. Sadly that was not to be.

Mallorca's family broke the news of his passing on his official Facebook page on Monday.

“We love you infinity, goodbye and safe trip.”

Mall was always a very firm favourite in North / South Ireland and was renowned for his electrifying energy and stage presence. There was a strong connection and common ground between the Scottish rave scene and our very own. It is one of the few things that brings all communities together as one.

One post on his official Facebook page said “I apologise for not telling all of my family and friends individually, it just breaks my heart a thousand times and I don’t have the strength to go through it all over and over again"

“I love you all, the last ten years have been the best of them all, it really has been wonderful.

“Love, that’s all we ever really have, our one true currency, so tell the ones around you what they mean to you, every day.”

We pass on our heartfelt condolences to Mallorca's family.

May he rest in peace.
