    I think Northern Soul died out with the advent of Carpet Tiles, with all that beer on them you could slide around like they used to.

    Not for that one.

    The scene just keeps on keeping on and doesn't stagnate, hence there's no need for re-unions.

    There's a Northern soul night in Pattaya, you should check it out.

    Although there is some cringeworthy characters and dancing in this video..

    Plenty of dad dancing going on in Chit's first vid. I reckon a few might have even busted out the funky chicken when things really started to "bounce."

    He also gave Anthony 53 CDs, two microphones, studio quality leads, rare mini disc recordings with Northern Soul artist Rob Smith and a five channel mixer desk.
    Mr Deakes said: "There is enough stuff there to set up a mini studio."


    Anthony said it will help him to practise his skills and learn more about he DJ industry.
    "I just want to say thank you [to] Peter because I didn't know what he saw in me. I just thank him from the bottom of my heart," he added.

    Image captionMr Deakes said while his DJing life is coming to an end, Anthony's is just beginningDespite being born in the early noughties, Anthony's home in Nottingham is a shrine to the 1960s and 1970s, with icons like Steve McQueen and Jimi Hendrix on the wall.
    He wears classic Mod clothes like Fred Perry tops and Harrington jackets, listens to American soul music recorded in the 1960s and goes out dancing at Northern Soul nights.
