The name Backstreet originally comes from the name of the
Edwin Starr classic. The song really reminds me of my time on the northern soul scene, and it is one of the
inspirations that got the scene started in Denmark back in
I have always liked the more up-tempo soul sounds; fantastic
dance rhythms and great memories. It has always been my
dream to see a Northern Soul scene functioning in Denmark
and it's great to see how the club and the scene has
developed over the years. Thanks to all who turn up. Keep on

I started listening to Northern Soul about 37 years ago,
dancing away at youth clubs in North Yorkshire, and I got
hooked… Once the music gets into your system it stays their,
even 20 years 'out of the scene' didn't help cure me
The great music and the fantastic atmosphere that always
accompanies a Northern Soul event has to be experienced…
It's just pure joy. As can be seen from my top five play
list, I'm a big fan of the classic 60's soul sound. The fantastic
musical arrangements, the musicianship and the syncopated rhythms adopted by
the producers of 60's soul has, in my opinion, never been equalled. Fantastic dance music that has, and
always will be able to stand the test of time!
