Hummer Adventure Tours

What’s up Party People? I'm back from my trip to Arizona, man is it hot over there. I mean weather wise, it was about 106 degrees day and night. It is a dry type of heat. To give you an example it's like opening an oven and feeling that heat through the whole day. But, I love the place. The city of Scottsdale is one of the cleanest cities I've seen. I didn't get the chance to visit the Grand Canyon, one of the seven wonders of the world but I still had fun with river rafting and hummer ride tours. If you have the chance to go to Scottsdale, Arizona give Charlie Hartmetz from Hummer Adventure Tours a call. The hummer ride was the bomb.

mario~.bmp (233298 bytes) One of today's hottest Freestyle talents is back and keeping busy in the recording studio. Mario’s track “I Can’t Go On”, was first introduced to the Freestyle Music community back in 1999, when we received his demo album “It’s About Tyme”.  Shortly after our review he was signed with Pryme Tyme records which featured the official release of “I Can’t Go On” on their compilation CD, “Freestyle A New Dimension In Tyme, Vol.#2. But, now Mario is a free agent again, so labels look out. If you're looking for a quality type artist then this is your chance to make a move because Mario is coming out stronger in the new millennium. The name of the new track is “Freestyle Love”, and if it sounds anything like his last two releases “Nobody’s Fool, or “I Can’t Go On”, then it’s sure to be a hit. With the right label and attitude Mario is destined to have a very promising career in the music business. You can contact Mario direct at: (630) 551-1054 or email:
Who is Rosalinda? I tell you who she is. A very beautiful and talented young artist from  the San Francisco Bay area, that is definitely going to make Latinos proud. Rosalinda was formerly in a group called Alma De Mexico, which was showcasing her talent to the general public and while singing at a friend’s party was approached to audition for producers, DJ Raj and DJ Chilli. Before she knew it, Rosalinda was in the studio recording her first single. With her hit debut single, “Give Me All Your Love”, under her belt, “Feel The Love”, her much anticipated album released on Illusive Records is just hitting stores. Let me say that this album contains the best of all dance music styles. “Feel The Love” is a must for your music collection. The albums strong Freestyle, Latin, and House styled grooves will have any party moving. Rosali.jpg (11618 bytes)
You will sure be “Hypnotized” once you play this powerful Freestyle anthem. The first time I heard this CD , I felt a chill and just know that Rosalinda will be one of the top new artist to break into the music scene big time. Two of my favorite tracks are the Electro-Funk styled track “Let’s Find A Way”, a Trinere type sound reminiscent of “Look Out Weekends”, but with a 2001 feel and “Goodbye” a dark Latin Rascal type sound with Spanish guitar riffs. I can’t go out without mentioning  her powerful and sweet melodic vocal style that will have you wanting to hear more. 5-Stars*****

For half of a decade, “El Show De Freddy Lopez” has been entertaining viewers nationwide. But how did this freestyle based variety show originate? “I noticed that there was  a major lack of exposure on television for Freestyle or any Latin Freestyle music for that matter. One day, I was flipping through cable and noticed a number of interesting access programs with various topics. I decided to call a particular station, BronxNet and get an application,” Freddy recalls.BronxNet, the borough’s public access cable channel, liked Mr. Lopez’s idea for a bilingual Latin based dance show and decided to give it a try. “I never thought it would go so far in such a short time,” he says. “Things started to change. I received telephone calls from producers, singers, promoters, and record companies.” 

 The self titled “Freddy Lopez Show” (aka “El Show De Freddy Lopez”) debuted on March 13, 1995. It’s first guest was the singer Judy Torres, who is now nationally known as a host on the hugely popular radio station KTU. The celebrity roster continued to grow, including appearances by Tonasia, The Rios Sisters, Aby (from TKA), & more, and many others. When the show first debuted, it featured singer Chrissy I-eece as a co-host. Presently, the roster also includes superstar Cynthia.“El Show De Freddy Lopez” has become so momentously popular that it is now shown as far west as Ohio and is extending to Puerto Rico as well. In 1999, it was nominated for Best Entertainment Access Show. 

 The program has also spawned a compilation album. Released on E.L.I./Fever Records, “La Nueva Generacion” (aka “The New Generation”) distributed by Warlock Record, It features hosts Freddy Lopez and Chrissy I-eece, a well as tracks from superstar Lissette Melendez and freestyle favorite Saint, a well as newcomers such as Javier Lopez, Geo Villacis, Joey Santana, and Lovari.
