The Power Plant

After the The Warehouse, Frankie Knuckles moved to the Power Plant. This must have been around 1983/84.

Knuckles moved to another new venture in 1983, The Power Plant, which is situated on the north side of Chicago, and already a scene was beginning to emerge.

- but where The Power Plant's more soulful style had contrasted with the rawer sound of The Music Box, so did DJ International lead the way with the vocal releases as opposed to Trax's, er, trax. And it was DJ International which made house's first breakthrough into the mainstream with Farley Jackmaster Funk's 'Love Can't Turn Around', reaching the UK Top 10 in August 1986 via a deal with FFRR.
