History of Freestyle

Freestyle is defined as being a style of electronic dance music or dance-pop music that surfaced in the U.S. around the mid-'80s. The peak of its popularity came in the late '80s and early '90s, but it continues to be produced today and enjoys some degree of commercial success. Coveted performers within the freestyle genre include: Timmy T, George Lamond, TKA, Company B, Expose, The Cover Girls, Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam, Sa-Fire, Information Society, Sweet Sensation, Shannon, Trilogy, Johnny O, Lisette Melendez, Rockell, Judy Torres, among others.

Shannon's "Let the Music Play" is frequently billed as the genre's first major hit and still saturates the airwaves today. Its producers Chris Barbosa and Mark Liggett transformed the electro funk sound with additives of syncopated drum-machine sound and Latin-American rhythms. The new sound revived the hip-hop, soul and funk scenes in the Big Apple. While many clubs were forced to close their doors, Manhattan clubs that touted freestyle music began to boom. Records like "One More Shot" by C Bank, "Play At Your Own Risk" by Planet Patrol and more became smash hits. Producers from around the planet started to mimic the sound in productions that were more conducive to radio. Records like "I Remember What You Like" by Jenny Burton, "It Works For Me" by Pam Russo, "Running" by Information Society" and "Give Me Tonight" by Shannon underwent serious New York radio airplay. Freestyle continues to have strong foothold in New York. Radio station WKTU launched Freestyle Free for ALL live concerts in 1996. In March 2013, a freestyle concert was hosted at Radio City Music Hall. Originally orchestrated as a one-night event, a second night was added shortly after the first one sold out. The 2013 event featured Judy Torres, Cover Girls, Lisa Lisa, Shannon, TKA, Noel and more.
