Vintage Vinyl

Easy Street Records was launched in 1983, by US music industry executive Michael Gusick. Two of the label's early tracks by Monyaka and Hot Streak, were released by Polydor Records resulting in two UK Top 20 hits, and both tracks' full length versions feature here, along with a further 12 tracks, on this Vinyl 2LP 40th Anniversary celebration. The back-story is that Hot Streak, which included Curtis Hudson and Lisa Stevens, were recommended to Michael Gusick by the DJ Producer, Jellybean. 'Body Work' was co-produced by Jellybean and the following year, Hudson and Stevens, had a worldwide hit by aspiring Artist, Madonna; the track,...'Holiday'. Meanwhile, 'Body Work' found itself as the only independently owned record on the 1984 "Breakdance" (aka "Breakin") soundtrack but the song remains relevant today and has been used asthe opening track during Dua Lipa's tour. Monyaka were signed after a taxi driver gave a passenger - an Easy Street exec - acassette of his band's music!
