THE WEEKEND STARTS HERE ! : Volume 2
The second volume of the 'The Weekend Starts Here' series deals exclusively with the Popcorn genre.
Popcorn is a style of music and dancing first established in Belgium in the 1970s and 1980s. The style includes a wide variety of mostly American and British recordings of R&B and pop music made between the late 1950s and mid 1960s, often relatively obscure, and characterised by a slow or medium, rather than fast, tempo. The Popcorn music scene first developed from dances held at the Groove discotheque in Ostend where mid-tempo soul and ska music played by DJ Freddy Cousaert became popular in the late 1960s.
