For what its worth  

I think after 87 the production become too polished, the rawness of the early stuff was better in my opinion. When I heard this track for the first time I just thought of all the shufflers at the

and if I might link a track that just simply the best... sheer class:-)

This was played though. Reminds me of Rick Astley.

I've got a US 12" promo with FK Classic and R&B mix for £15 if anyone interested.

Didn't 'Tribute' Bob Sinclair get played at Northern nights for a while? 

Anyway, I am thinking more soulful vocals for this thread. Few quick ones off top of head..

Another one thats firmly on the soulful side of dance music. 

Essentially just a soul record but with more bpm.....

And this was really well received on here last year.

Slightly less 'house' but an outstanding tune nonetheless...

Can remember a scottish dj dropped this, as new release, at the short lived all nighters at congleton 

Funny I also remember being at Congleton and someone playing the Frankie Knuckles 'It's hard sometime' as tipped earlier in the thread

Soul Sam used to play Let It Go by Joi Cardwell until fairly recently, Very easy to dance Northern style to 

 

(72) Let It Go feat Joi Cardwell (Original Mix) - YouTube

I tried to attach the link but it hasn't worked for some reason, perhaps someone else can do it. Sure most know it anyway.

Interesting thing about this thread is that Most of the tracks that have been posted on here WERE Played on the Northern Scene by the More Forward thinking DJs just like back during the Birth of N. Soul, 70s releases played alongside 60s continuing onward through into the 80s & 90s and beyond playing new releases from those years too and into the present day so if you were only attending Venues that would ONLY play 60s records (and there were a lot of those) you would not get to hear them, for me personaly it was not about the year a record came out, it was about the record itself, soulful content and the beat, after all it is all soul music to these ears,  if it moved me i played it in the hope it would move the people with open minds and hopefully that were looking for something different to dance too 😃

Blurred lines these days, my old Fac51 mates are now into disco, soul and funk based stuff with some of the old Jazz Funk records going down particularly well.

A lot of the Paradise Garage tunes would get a response on the floor at a soul event now I reckon but whether a Northern Crowd back in the day would have reacted well is another story.

This would have crossed over in my house though........

always been the track I thought could cross over, this was a MONSTER track at places like the Hummingbird in Brum, Shelley's in Stoke, and that place in Manchester :- /  think Holy St James !

and finally, i wont swamp the thread, I'm thinking Norvern screamers here, there are records Ive seen and heard turn people loopy, but this used to literally RIP the place apart at the Amnesia dos in Coventry, it did where ever it was played...

ENERGY LIKE NO OTHER ! which is what Norvern is all about right?

When the 'anything goes' across the board nights return, I can see a few of these making an appearance.

For some reason I have always wondered what it might have been like to hear this at 4am at Wigan Casino...........

.............the intro & that searing vocal coming from that high ceiling likes it's enveloping you, the relentless pace of it.........and of course the lyrics and the title!! 🤪

Cheers,

Hard to know where the boundaries are.

I remember one all dayer at Sheffield Steel City around 78 when the 2 room set up first came in.

Upstairs smaller room pure northern and downstairs jazz funk with some hip hop thrown in.

No natural fusion at that point.

Amalgamation of sorts evolved.

If its soulful sounding and you can dance to it, get it on the decks.

Hard not to defend that when back in the day it was dance only with classics like scratchy and cats eyes.

Never really listened to house music but I admit that I find them very repetitive and too bloody long some have good vocals but that’s about as far as it goes for me.

That's a really good comparison, with holly st james. Patti day is a freestyle record though, to be pedantic.😁

Well that was the midlands In The early 90's. It was played and big in the north as well but it's fair to say there was a definite split in the sounds, north vs midlands. Compare Fridays at Shelly's, north west crowd with Sasha, to the eclipse night on Saturdays at the same venue.

yep the Day Glow may have made the difference! lol    I think the eclipse lot was later on though, Martin Red's SinDrome was there at the start, predominately everybody from Brum and Wolverhampton area, with a mix of bemused locals in for an early drink of the night, scared the F***K out of em!  he used to have great guests too, Colin Dale, Steve Warner, Bod, Unknown DJ (Micky Rose) and allot of big names over from Chicago...

Right next weeks Mixcloud mix is tracks getting ready to go out Dec 89!!

Oh man, I can remember someone screaming '****ing hell'' on top of their voice when that slow piano intro started at the hac. Talk about shudders. We moaned at the dj all night, to play it, new years at hard times, Danny Tenaglia, he did.

Reachin' definitely  and Ten City , some of the others a bit Russ Winstanley for me;)

How's about this 1984 I think- one hour long.

 

 

Amazing record, samples and re made countless times. 

This group has to deserve an inclusion, put out some brilliant singles and an excellent album in 1989/90.

my mate Martin Redmond (Martin Red) said he had this in the box from release right through to the end of 92,  thats five years,  it was that liked 🙂  Void's other biggie 'Running Away' was good too... but has dated, Doesn't 'alright' sound as fresh now as back then...?

This is the best of the lot IMHO. Serious shudders from the drum roll into the piano, again, highly sampled.

This is not the mix I wanted to post but it gives you the general idea. The best mix for me on this is the "Real Vibe" mix which I cannot find on you tube.
