NU-Freestyle/Electro Dance Queen puts face on front page of The Miami Herald.

Underground.

It is our birth place and our sanctuary. It always has been  and is why we still thrive and once again it modes to rise once again.

In the beginning there was sound , the drum, and what that drum signified for a generation searching for the beat of their identification.A voice for the underground club and street children. It rose from the culture of Americas streets and its disco floors. It merged and crossed back from the alternative gothic sides of synth pop and new wave. It was part of Americas Rhythm and Blues  and help define another style of a people's rhythms and their blues. It linked the street to the club, the disco of the previous decade to the new decade . It linked black to Latin to white. It linked gay to str8.

Just A little bit of jazz, a little bit of soul.SALSA, disco, calypso,bosa nova.FUNK and ROCK fusion.

It merged and in its own freeform  adapted to the changing times and changing trends,utilizing and improvising within itself.  The freeform Electro hiphop genre and sound uniting the world.

Other funky stuff:

Tina Novak After the success of "never" feat Tina arena, The Roc Project is back with another breaks scorcher feat Tina Novak. On Tommy Boy records, the Roc project has taken the Freestyle driven Breaks sound beyond commercial levels and influencing larger pop acts to take and experiment with other forms of Electro.

The new release called "deja vu" is in a similar form to "trip hop/freestyle records" of the past five years, such as "how long" by  Becca, yet holds freestyleish vocals and a sound leaning to mid 80's Freestyle/R&B driven tracks. We will continue to report and give more info on this new scorcher ,as it will grow to be a summer scorcher.

Blondie (Debbie Harry was born in Miami!), has their new single out called "Good boys".The single comes from their album "Curse of Blondie" and is in the lines of Electro clash house.Debbie Harry has always been in touch with the times and has had several disco anthems though out the decades including two Freestyle anthems in the early 80's with the freestyle/electrodance "feel the spin" and "in Love with Love". With "Good boys" Debbie and the rest of Blondie show they are still shattering glass. Blondie - Debra Harry
