Freestylers

Freestylers

 

The Freestylers will perform live at The Hi-Fi on Friday Apr. 16.


Having rocked dancefloors around the world since the glory days of electronic music back in the mid-90s, this veteran British collective are past masters at building up a heady groove. More old-school hip hop, electro and ragga than big-beat techno (though they're often pigeon-holed that way), the Freestylers were formed by the trio of Matt Cantor, Aston Harvey and Andrew Galea. All three were British b-boys back in the day, and were heavily involved in Britain's dance scene by the late 1980s, both as DJs and producers. Era defining hits included Drop the Boom, a dancefloor smash on both sides of the Atlantic in 1997, Here We Go and Don’t Stop.

The success of the latter two hits gave the guys, now minus Galea who left in 1997, a platform to break the US, and their album We Rock Hard went on to sell over 150,000 stateside. Their growing prominence brought them to the attention of some of the biggest names in hip hop and they were asked to remix tracks by legends of the genre such as Afrika Bambaataa and the Jungle Brothers. The next few years saw the boys going from strength to strength. They mixed the big beat compilation album FSUK 2 and a Radio 1 Essential Mix featuring artists as diverse as Public Enemy and The Fall.
