November 7th Underhuset

Thanks to everybody who came to the event and made it a great night, especially our friends from Norway and Sweden; fantastic to see that Northern Soul is well established in Scandinavia. Special thanks to Todd, our guest DJ.


September 5th Underhuset

In the words of a Northern Classic: 'Summer is over and we have parted, nothing is left of the dreams we started...' Well, the start of the new season came with a couple of major gremlins - A storm, thanks to nature and the collapse of the Dankort system thanks to NETS.... Bad weather and no way to buy drinks - even Northern Soul can't stand up to that. See you all on the 7th November; it's got to be a better night (statistically !).


May 2nd Underhuset

Thanks to our guest Eike for for helping us put on a real classic Northern Soul night. Up tempo music, an intomate atmosphere and a swinging dancfloor....


April 18th Jazzhouse

This was really a night to remember - the atmosphere and the crowd made the night magic. A big big thank-you to our co-organisers CPH PIX (Copenhagen Film Festival) and Jazzhouse, not to mention Kev Roberts and Elaine Constantine - and last but not least, you the people that made it happen; the dancers.

I guess they must have liked that 45 then...

Thanks to you all!

In the words of Mr Frankie Valli: 'Oh What a Night' - Maybe not the most soulful record played on the scene, but the title describes well our event on the 1st Nov.

October 4th - Underhuset

Yet another great night at Backstreet, dancing till the late hours and loving every minute! The DJ crew, including our guest Sebastian, that would like to thank all of you that came for making our job a pure pleasure. To have a passion for the music is fantastic, but to be able to see the passion in the dancers we play for moves it up to another level - So Move on Up (as Curtis Mayfield once said)


September 12th - Underhuset
Halmtorvet 9, 1700 Copenhagen V

A great start to the winter season - sorry about having to move the date, but we had problems at the venue with flooding.

Götteborg spinning his 45's once again in Copenhagen.

May 3rd - Underhuset, Halmtorvet 9, 1700 Copenhagen V

What can we say? Well a big thank-you would be in order to all those that came and made it a night to remember. The energy and atmosphere that the new venue provided just mixed with the music and you, the crowd, and created a sublime evening. It's rare to feel that Northern Soul vibe thing outside the UK, but thanks to you all; club-goers, the staff at Underhuset and the guest DJ's (Sebastian & Todd), we did it!

So the first event of 2013 is planned. We're really looking forward to bring you the best of the worlds original club dance music - Northern soul.

The DJ line-up included the usuals, an oldie and a newcomer. The oldie, Niolaj (Ghetto Soul), did a great job spinning his fabulous 45's together with Kasper & Ken. Andreas (Tower City) was a newcomer to the decks at Backstreet (but not a newcomer to our dance floor).

Thanks for making it a great night.



After the event, Christian wrote:

Hey soulsters,
Just want to thank you for a great night in march at Haven. I was celebrating my birthday so I invited a lot of friends to the dance instruction at the beginning of the night, since they were all newcomers on the Northern Soul scene. We had a great time, and everyone is asking when is the next time - we wanna come again!

So I hope it won\'t be too long before I can get on the floor to tracks like Sam Dee's: Lonely for you Baby - And next time I'll bring along a bunch of friends

cheers from Christian


Thanks Christian, hope to see you at the next event!


14th December - Christmas bash (Private event)

I (Ken) had a great night introducing some newcomers to the music at a Northern Soul theme event for my good friend Graeme and all of his students. Hope that you all enjoyed the evening. Maybe see you at our event in March.

Many thanks,



Backstreet 21st anniversary event. 1st December 2012

What a fantastic night... you were just a great crowd to play for. All the DJ's said how much fun it was playing that night. DJ'ing is a strange business, and well, sometimes everything just falls into place; the rhythm, the atmosphere, the crowd on the floor, and when it happens finding which 45 to put on the turntable just becomes part of the bigger picture and everything just 'moves 'n grooves'.

So for all you soulies out there who made the night happen by simply being there a BIG THANKS from the Backstreet team: Nick, Roy, Kasper & Ken, and of course our guest DJ Jonas.



See you all out on the floor KTF



Roskilde Festival Radio

We were there... or at least our studio reecorded Backstreet Northern Soul Mix was.

Didn't catch it!... Never mind, you can hear it here:

Saturday 28th January 2012

Thanks to everyone who made the event at Club Klaffbron fantastic... the EGLO team, the band and not least the club goers who were on fire. We had a great night playing our up tempo 60's Northern Soul vinyl to the insatiable crowd. Hope to see you again soon,


Kasper & Ken


Backstreet in Sweden - Kasper and Ken are the guest DJ's at Club Klaffbron, Malmö's hottest venue on the 28th of January. Inspired by the live-dance-clubs of the 60's, Everybody Gets Lonely Sometimes is putting on an extraordinary dance-night beyond imagination. We're talking mini-skirts, gogo-boots, paisley-shirts, parkas, Hammond-organs, tambourines, girl-groups and dance-euphoria

Live on stage is the eight piece resident soul-combo E.G.L.O, fronted by the lovely girl group-trio The Clitts. Special guests at the event are two of Sweden's best singers, Theodor Jensen and Anna Maria Espinosa, who will be performing their favourite soul and old-school R&B-songs together with the band.

The venue Klaffbron is located very close to the Central Station in Malmö and the trains run all night long.... We'll provide the beat, you just need to get your dancing shoes on and hit the floor!
