I played some classic Northern Soul tracks for Aamir and the group to listen to at NYC. I remember hearing 'Needle in a Haystack' for the first time over 30 years ago at the same venue, although back then it was in the single storey prefab building.
Today we are listening to it in a purpose built dance studio on the very same site and the young people love it all the same.
Aamir kindly put his birthday celebrations on hold to chat to me about the similarities between current dance floor moves and 'old-school' manoeuvres.
Happy Birthday Aamir and thanks for your time.
