Dance. Vinyl. DJs. Amphetamines. Club culture. Northern Soul culture fed on the energy of audiences discovering dance music classics for themselves. British appreciation of the under-appreciated and instinct for street-generated style lay at the heart of the Northern scene.
The street-based energy that filled Northern club floors in the Seventies laid the foundations for the Rave scene in the Nineties.
With film, archive footage, dance clips, documentary and twenty blistering dance tracks, "Soul Function" captures the excitement and power of Northern Soul.
