With it’s sharp wavy synths alongside the uncanny pop and disco feels, the latin rythyms, the new wave and hip hop breaks – freestyle is an American musical gem. Here’s a small list of favorites.
“Latin freestyle, or freestyle music, is a form of electronic dance music that emerged in the New York metropolitan area in the 1980s. It experienced its greatest popularity from the late 1980s until the early 1990s. It continues to be produced today and enjoys some degree of popularity, especially in urban settings. A common theme of freestyle lyricism is heartbreak in the city. The first freestyle hit is largely attributed to “Let the Music Play” by Shannon.”
Cant forget this one! Absolutely bonkers – this is a classic.
