In 1983, UK Hip Hop’s very early days, The Family Quest were formed and used to play regularly at Spats club in London.

After an appearance on Automation’s ‘Dancing In Outer Space’ in 1984, they entered Mike Allen’s ‘King Of The Streets’ competition and won. Morgan Khan then released ‘Sleepwalking’ on the Streetwave label which also featured on Street Sounds Electro 13.

Family Quest also appeared at the legendary ‘UK Fresh ’86’, one of the very few UK acts that appeared there and the Electro Rock at The Hippodrome.

It was acts like Family Quest that paved the way for UK Hip Hop in the early days.
