ABOUT THE SCENE
Northern soul is an essential chapter in the history of modern British music. A movement in music, dance and fashion, it emerged independently in northern England in the late 1960s from the British mod scene. Northern soul mainly consists of a particular style of black American soul music based on the heavy beat and fast tempo of the mid-1960s Tamla Motown sound. It was phenomenally popular with British youths in the 1970s, taking the North of the country by storm at venues such as the Twisted Wheel in Manchester and other UK dancehalls like Wigan Casino and The Highland Rooms at Blackpool Mecca Bingo.
