Dance music for Radio 2
BBC Radio 2 has hired Zoe Ball to broadcast a season of programmes dedicated to dance music and create a poll to find the greatest dance record of all time.
The station will trace the evolution of the musical genre, from the early days of northern soul to the present day, in a three-part series.
In Acid House – The Next Generation, DJ Chris Coco speaks to ravers young and old – from promoters, musicians and DJs like Carl Cox and Dave Haslam, who helped kick-start a dance music revolution, to new kids on the block like New Young Pony Club and Klaxons.
The Definitive History Of UK Dance Music, which is produced for BBC Radio 2 by Unique Productions, begins on Saturday 21 June at 7pm.
