Over the past ten years, when most of the radio and music
industry sneered at the thought of Freestylemusic or while the remainder of the Freestyle
recording industry lived on only hopes and dreams of Freestyle once again reaching the
mainstream at the same time oposing change and opting for the more common
"traditional" sound found in records of the early 90's, Freestylemusic.com along
with the rest of Miami's underground continued to Flourish and lead a new movement.
It took the signing of one record to a new York house label to
bring world recognition on what had been happening in Miami's underground rising out of
the early 90's Techno rave scene. If Techno lust "woman" or the original expose
(x-pose) "Point Of no return" shined light on Miami freestyle in the early
80's before the Latin Hiphop movement even when it was at full swing during the early to
mid 80's, it would be George Acosta's coming out with Nadine Rene and signing "Set
You Free" by Planet soul to the Fulcrum New York House label of the 90's , the now
defunct Strictly rhythm that would once again shine light on a new wave and evolvement of
Miami Electrofunk and Freestyle. Some called it Acid phunk or trip hop others still call
it Electro breaks. Regardless, influences would quickly infuse other break regions in the
underground scene of California,Canada and Europe and have since then continued to
flourish. Today the Nu-freestyle/Electrodance is one of the most cutting edge scenes when
it comes for the demand of Quality sides of freestyle and experimental records taking on
new directions of FREESTYLE DANCE MUSIC.
In present day records continue to cross from the more Electro
funk (AKA new Electro funk or breaks) and the electroclash scene, as Trance and House DJ's
,Vocalist, trance artist and their following continue to favor and migrate to more Electro
freestylish records. It's heard in the current clubs, it is heard in the current radio.
Around the globe Classic Electrofunk and Freestyle records are still played and still keep
dancefloors and radio formats alive,while new forms of Freestyle AKA
Nu-Freestyle/electrodance continue to evolve and influence key players in today's
underground and global music scene.
MARCH 2004 the electrodance/nu-freestyle circles were a
small percentage of artist and industry personnel in between the world of the breaks
and Freestyle's already existing scene. Since then we have grown in numbers, influenced
new companies to open and both new and old artist to take new directions. Eight months ago

other s were the ONLY ones taking part in any present day Freestyle influencing the
