It all goes back to the 60's and the British Mod Scene when Northern Soul (as Wikipedia reminds us) wave brought together fashion, music and dance.
In the 80's, the style had a resurgence.
The movement never died down completely and since 2008 is attracting new fans.
Photographer and video director Dean Chalkley has been spotting the places and people who brought that new spark to Northern Soul.
In collaboration with 125 Magazine, Dean Chalkley is broadcasting Young Souls, the short film he made on Northern Soul's latest wave, to a wider audience.
The movie will also be shown at Vintage Festival (London, July 29-31)
Here's a teaser:
According to Young Souls run free (British Journal of Photography, July 28) a photo exhibit with "22 photographs showing off the young fans' clothes and move" as well as the movie are on display until August 6th at "Youthclub, a new popup gallery just off Carnaby Street at 2.1 Kingly Court, the latest in an ongoing project by youth culture specialists PYMCA"
