From the nucleus of The Loft, writhing through crucial spots like The Gallery and the Paradise Garage then spreading to a million other dance floors on this planet and beyond – there’s an ever-present sound and a distinct feeling that comes with it.
A propulsive groove and an incitement to dance. It’s not always the same, but you know it when you hear it. Soul and funk mutating into disco. Disco smoothening out into boogie. Boogie toughening up into house. Italo disco, punk funk and a bundle of other strains happening throughout… The Rounds chronicles all of these moments in the dance as well as those still to come.
Ready the smoke machine. Adjust the lights. It’s time to do The Rounds.
Willy Slade kicking things off for the first half hour then Nicole Filev & Roland the Realest for the remainder.
