Fantastic harmonies and soulful vocals covering Northern Soul which is a popular music and dance movement that emerged in Northern England in the late 1960s from the British mod scene. This scene was based on a particular style of black American soul music, especially in the mid-1960s, with a heavy beat and fast tempo. The Northern Soul movement generally eschews Motown or Motown-influenced music that has had significant mainstream commercial success.

As the favoured beat became more uptempo and frantic in the early 1970s, Northern Soul dancing became more athletic, somewhat resembling the later dance styles of disco and break dancing.
Featuring spins, flips, karate kicks and backdrops, club dancing styles were often inspired by the stage performances of touring American soul acts such as Little Anthony & the Imperials and Jackie Wilson.
In the late 1960s and early 1970s, popular northern soul records generally dated from the mid-1960s.
Today there are regular Northern Soul Motown events in various parts of the United Kingdom. We’re thinking of venues such as the Nightshift Club all-nighters at the Bisley Pavilion in Surrey and the Prestatyn Weekender in North Wales. (Wikipedia)
