Details

Vol. 2 deals exclusively with the Popcorn genre – feat. Ann Cole, Jack Costanzo, Milton Trenier, Nappy Brown and many more!

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.

In September 1969, a café, De Oude Hoeve, opened in a converted farm barn at Vrasene near Antwerp, and began holding dance competitions on Sunday afternoons. Soon up to 3,000 people began attending each week, dancing in a "slow swing" style. De Oude Hoeve was later renamed Popcorn and the special genre had it’s name... Later on the DJs messed up a perfectly fine recipe by adding all kinds of pop tunes as long as the tempo was right. This 10” however features 12 pure Popcorn groovers from the “golden era”!
