This is the story of Northern Soul The Film – This is a story of a youth culture that changed a generation and influenced songwriters, producers, DJs and designers for decades to come.
The film tells the tale of two Northern boys whose worlds are changed forever when they discover black American soul music.
Northern Soul was phenomenally popular with British youths in the 1970s, taking the North of the country by storm.
Set in Lancashire in 1974, the film follows Matt and John as they leave behind a humdrum life of youth clubs and factory lines to chase a dream of travelling to the US, unearthing unknown soul 45s and establishing themselves as top DJs on the Northern soul music scene.
Their dance and amphetamine-fuelled quest brings them into contact with some of the darker elements of the scene and tests their friendship to its limits.
This film appeals to those generations of fans while attracting a modern audience who can relate to youth culture from another era.
If you were there, you’ll know. If you weren’t there, you’ll wish you had been.
The Film is in UK Cinemas from October 17 | ON DVD, Blu-Ray & Digital HD from October 20.
