Can You Feel It: How Dance Mu­sic Con­quered the World

BBC Four, 10pm

The Beat The first in this au­thor­i­ta­tive three-part his­tory of the dance revo­lu­tion spans the emer­gence of the four-to-the -floor beat in Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes’ 1973 disco floor­filler The Love I Lost, through remix cul­ture to house, techno and on to acid house, cul­mi­nat­ing with 808 State’s 1989 hit Pa­cific State. Fa­mous names jos­tle to il­lu­mi­nate the sub­ject but oddly – typ­i­cal coy BBC – ecstasy is only men­tioned just be­fore the close. Qual­ity.
