The latest episode of Join The Future on Noods Radio is now available to stream on demand via the embedded audio player below, the Noods website and the station’s Mixcloud channel. This episode – the fourth of season two – is dedicated to one of the key topics touched upon in the book: the 1980s all-dayer and jazz-dance scene, and the impact it had on the development of early forms of UK dance music.
The show features a full recording of the ‘Serious Dances, Serious Dancers’ talk that Matt Anniss hosted at the 2021 edition of Gilles Peterson’s We Out Here festival in Cambridgeshire. On that day, Matt was joined by Forgemasters member, Jive Turkey resident, Kabal co-founder and former dedicated dancer Winston Hazel. The two discussed Winston’s journey in music, his memories of travelling to all-dayers, his role as a DJ that dancers would follow around the North, the little-known Monday night club in Huddersfield called Sunset Boulevard that played a key role in the development of the Bleep & Bass scene, and the overall impact of former ‘dedicated dancers’ on key acid house-era forms of UK dance music.
