|The end of the third quarter is approaching and the Dance music scene just keeps getting hotter with new releases and remakes of the classics. The support for the genre also continues to grow, as the music easily makes it's way back to the mainstream airwaves and commercial media. More and more tracks are finding spots on TV commercials, internet media and video games that normally would have stayed in the underground. This is a positive avenue for the music to gain exposure and promote new talent to the world. SO, get your asses back to the studio and let your creativity flow !!! Their is no excuse to produce.|
|Safire comes out strong with her new album "Bringing
Back The Grove" and single "Don't
Break My Heart 2002" released on the Globestar record label.
The album contains several slamming Freestyle tracks featuring the production talents of Carlos Berrios as well as duets with Freestyle legends Tony Moran on "Some Things Never Change" and Cynthia on "Can You Stand The Rain". Also found on the album is a new Freestyle ballad "I'm Feeling It Too" and Freestyle classics "Don't Break My Heart", "You Said You Loved Me", and "Gonna Make It".
You got to get a copy to add to your collection of tracks.
|Look out all you Freestyle heads, R-Jam (Geraldo J.
Robles III) is here to make some noise in the Freestyle,dance genre. His single release
contains the Latin house, Freestyle oriented track "Forever", which gets you
thinking of those glorious Reinaldo days. A tight dance track with all the essentials that
make a Latin hiphop hit. Included in the single is "Caliente" a party style
Latin jam that will have clubland stomping to it's rhythm. *****5-Stars
Don't forget to check out an exclusive Freestyle Music.Com interview with R-Jam by Jorge A. Ojeda. Coming soon!!!
|What is the Filtered sound?
The filtered sound is a sub-genre of dance music that is filled with deep-baked rhythms, hypnotic mantra-like vocals, sporadic use of processed special effects and wind-tunnel-like atmospherics. Tommy Boy Silver Label's amazing compilation, Filtered: Best of Filtered Dance, offers you the ultimate filtered music experience! Contains slamming tracks like Stardust's "Music Sounds Better With You", Funkstar Deluxe vs Bob Marley "Sun Is Shining, and a funky remix of Information Society's "Running".
The CD is as nice as the picture on the cover. "Filtered", The Best of Filtered Dance is the "definitive dance collection of the summer. Guaranteed to raise the roof and keep the party groovin' all night long!" ***** 5-Stars
|Lotus releases their 12" single "Within or Without You" from their self entitled album "Lotus". A smooth progressive dance sound ready to make noise in radio world. "Within or Without You" is reminiscent of the Annie Lennox track "No More 'I Love You's'. A great vocal performance, and hot Soul Solution Mixes make a perfect combination for a hit record. *****5-Stars|
|CT Rock the Techno, House Rock-King steps in and releases the power of his guitar. My favorite track is "Break It Down" located on the CD compilation Bronhadaminuon (nowhere near the end). This Electro funk guitar driven track will have you thinking of the smooth Electro rhythm of Egypt by the Egyptian Lover. I could do without the rap part on the track which does not match, but other than that the track will have you doing the Electro boogilou.|
|One of the hottest Freestyle Mix Compilations to be
released this summer. Stylin' Free presents Metropolitan "Ladies
Of Freestyle" Volume 1,2,3. The three CD's contain artists like Lil' Suzy, April,
Chrissy I-Eece, Deniz, Amy Tori, Nicole Daniels, Denine, Laissez Faire, Rhythmcentric,
Cheree, Giggles, Margie Martinee, Elissa, Lia Marquis, Stephanie Marano, Karizma, Baydoll,
Alexia Phillips and many more of today's Freestyle Divas. The CD's contain the megamixe
talents of DJ Mista Bizy, The Freestyle File and DJ Luis "Like Dis" Mendoza The
mixes are full of unique blends of edits and samples, laid down on some phat Freestyle
beats- perfectly mixed.
|The New Remix Album by LawTown recording Artist
"Bylli Crayone" will be released this fall. The album is called "The
Remix Project" and features 14 of his Dance Floor Tracks (Remixed!) Including his
"Touch Me All Over" and "Drop Those Pants!" The album will contain music from both his 1999 release "Original/Unique" and his most recent "TOYFRIEND". You will find the remix talents of Autocad, DJ Sky, MG 'N' Tony P, DJ Stephen, and Jorge Ojeda, Mike Check O.N.E. from Freestyle Music.Com.
Your Head" features 13 ecliptic tracks from Steve McGuiness and Rob Chetcuti, the
masterminds who are the Rhythm Masters. This album is a pure Electro ride into the
Underground, with it's deep filtered type sound. My favorite track is Electronic Funk,
which sounds like a remake of the classic old school Electro-funk track by OSE-
|America welcomes with open arms top DJ, producer and
artist Gigi D'Agostino. His powerful new album "L'Amour
Toujours" on Arista Records is burning up the charts with hit dance tracks like "I'll
Fly With You". One of the top requested tracks in the airwaves and club floors,
this track is full of hard pumping Freestyle beats with ragga style chants and sweet
Gigi D'Agostino believes that music has no boundaries and that cultures are not impassable. "Dance is a language," he says. With this language, this artist is crossing boundaries and impacting cultures worldwide. The secret to his success? His answer is simple: "Thanks to your discipline, you can realize all your dreams."

|TKA's new entitled album "Forever" (October 9th) is soon to hit the streets, get ready!!! Their new filtered type dance sound is going to re-open doors for the dance music genre, letting the world know that the Freestyle legends are back ready to make another musical impact. Their new sound remains true to the Freestyle roots of the group, but breaks new musical ground for them as well, allowing the group to expand their creative vision beyond the Freestyle realm.|
The first single to be released from the album "Feel The Music" (Sept.4th) is a guaranteed dance-floor burner, incorporates the neo-disco flavor of filtered dance music, yet retains the classic TKA vocals, indelibly marking the track and making it a distinctly TKA song. One of my favorite tracks is "Sexual Fantasy" which is more Freestyle oriented. The music of TKA came from the streets and lived through the streets; the rhythms represented the youthful heartbeat of Spanish Harlem. Through the music of TKA the Freestyle dance movement was born. They were truly Latin Kings! The new album will bring to the table TKA's new matured sound that will prove that they are here to stay "Forever".

|"DJ Mixmaster releases his latest track "El
Bimbo Latino", under the moniker Love Selective is a hard house tribal
extravaganza featuring a driving bassline, thrilling percussion and a Latin inflection
sure to please. The single features a remix by Axwell which takes the track to the next
level introducing a smooth, sultry vocal hook while Miami's Eddie X turns up the heat with
a remix featuring his signature tribal style, creating a track that is guaranteed to rock
the party." ***** 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 boroughs public access cable channel, liked Mr. Lopezs 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. Its 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.
