After laying low for several years following the death of disco, producer Jacques Morali returned in 1984 with Break Dance Party by Break Machine. Like many of his projects (ie. The Village People), they were visually represented by people that didn't actually sing or perform on the recordings. Looking at the dudes above, I can definitively say they had nothing to do with the recording of Break Dance Party. But, I do seriously dig their matching yellow headbands. You might think these guys would do something a bit harder than the almost cheesy italo stylings of this track. That said, I quite like this song and it's a worthy entry to the Beat Electric universe. Jacques Morali died of Aids in 1991 and left behind a huge body of work. He may truly have been ahead of his era by placing the emphasis on image and flash ahead of the productions, but not by much.
