  • A brief intro...
    I was introduced to the northern scene aged 16 at my first scooter rally in 1983 with ex-Wigan DJs playing at the all-nighters and have been collecting records ever since. I enjoy rare and underplayed events and am co-promoter of Feed Your Soul chillout at Newark and Creme de la Creme chillout at Annesley Woodhouse, both of which are free-to-public events.  (It's not about making money, it's about sharing the passion)

  3. Soul music is many things to Ben Pirani: It’s positive and it’s hopeful. It’s a soundtrack for struggle, which is where soul music came from in the first place. That the struggle has been happening largely in the black community is not lost on Pirani, who is white — it’s something he thinks about a lot. “I feel really strongly that soul music is precious and must be treated with care and respect,” he says. “Anything less is colonizing the funk.” Ben chats with Ady about his musical career thus far and his brand new LP ‘How Do I Talk To My Brother’ http://shinyl.co.uk/2019/01/14/ben-pirani/

  5. Gloria Scott’s is a name synonymous with Northern Soul, with her Barry White produced anthem (a case of) Too Much Lovemaking continuing to pack dancefloors across Europe. Her first venture into the recording studio was with Sly Stone in 1964. Gloria then auditioned for Ike & Tina Turner who signed her on the spot and took her to LA the same night. Soon after, she auditioned for Barry White. He instantly gave her a 7 year record deal and released the seminal LP ‘What Am I Gonna Do’ in 1974. Gloria was certainly set for stardom, however, Barry’s own career was about to take off….. Now it’s 2019 and she’s about to make her debut appearance in the UK, in London’s iconic 100 Club on October 11th. She also speaks about the forthcoming release of her long-awaited 1974 follow-up LP produced by HB Barnum. You can hear Gloria’s story here: http://shinyl.co.uk/2019/06/13/gloria-scott/
