Inventors of Street Dance...




Very little information about the group Break Machine except that he is produced by the same producers as the Village People, that is to say Jacques Morali and Henri Belolo and that he will remain mainly in the musical history of the 80s for the title “Street dance” released in 1983. Single which will set fire to all the Dancefloor of the planet that year.


As such alone, he deserved this article.


To discover or rediscover.

Clips :


1983 ... for a first title, it is a real masterstroke. The group signs here one of the biggest dance hits of the decade, masterfully carried by a totally revolutionary dance technique and which will establish herself as one of the major trends of the decades to come. MO-NU-MEN-TAL !



1984 ... a dance style of formidable efficiency and which allows them to continue the adventure in the best conditions. All good little guys !



1984 ... of course, they will not be able to repeat the incredible feat of the first title but what they continue to offer largely holds up. It's essential !



1984 ... the existence of the group will be more than ephemeral but it is better to have a brief existence and an anthology hit than decades of existence without producing anything remarkable ...



1984 ... an overall quality frankly up to the mark and which shows that this group largely deserves its place in the musical Pantheon of the 80s



1984 ... they will have deviated little from their trajectory and everything they will have produced is similar, it is clear. How can you blame them...



1984 ... with maybe a small variation for this title which differs slightly from everything they had offered until then. Anyway, overall a great job !
