Prelude Records was a New York-based dance independent record label, active from 1976 to 1986. At one time, François Kevorkian held an A&R position at Prelude. Prelude was one of the few disco labels to survive its death and in 1981 pioneered the Mastermix. Prelude’s biggest hits included “In the Bush” by Musique (1978), “Come to Me” by France Joli (1979), “A Little Bit of Jazz” by the Nick Straker Band and “Must Be the Music” by Secret Weapon (1981). After its closure in 1986, Prelude’s back catalogue was purchased by Unidisc.
