Video: Prestatyn Soul Weekender 1989 (Spectrum, Gilles Peterson, Paul Oakenfold, Froggy)

July 6, 2011

Found these via DJ History and the Go Bang Brighton website (thanks!). As it says under the videos on YouTube, “This is a copy of a dusty old video from 1989. It was filmed in the UK, the film is from a Soul Weekender in Prestatyn (Wales). This is a unique video that shows how the format of the Soul weekender changed forever … in the UK.

Although this was billed as a Soul Weekender, in truth it ended up featuring some of the biggest names in acid house music. Pete Tong went onto become the dance music master at R1, Oakey became a global DJ superstar, Gilles Peterson went onto R1 and Nicky Holloway went onto create the massive London house music clubs Sin/Trip etc … and the rest of us “got on one matey” …”

It’s great the soul crew liked a video camera so much as some of this is pretty priceless.
