Heritage Breaks Presents: The Freestylers (DJ Set) on Saturday 20th May 2017
About The Freestylers
After an 18 year career the Freestylers have covered a full 360 degrees in the Bass Music genre, having played all the biggest festivals, the most talked about Nightclubs around the World and even the quintessentially British music show, Top Of The Pops. Having achieved the kind of success most artists can only dream of, they’ve not rested on their laurels.
Aston and Matt started working on Music together in the mid ‘90’s after discovering a mutual love of Hip-Hop, Electro and Beats. They released their first two Albums ‘We Rock Hard’ and ‘Pressure Point’ on legendary Breakbeat label Freskanova. ’Raw as F**K” and ‘Adventures In Freestyle” were released on ‘Against The Grain” another Breaks Power House based out of Brighton,UK. From being voted ‘Best Band’ by Muzik Magazine in ’98, to touring with Lenny Kravitz on his American Woman Tour (he asked them himself as he was so impressed with their act), rocking a crowd of 30,000 at Glastonbury Festival ’99, performing at MTV’s Times Square Millennium Party,playing Big Day Out ’05 – it’s fair to say these Guys have had one big Adventure so far.
The Freestylers began their career as an Urban Electronic Music Act, and their early Tunes ‘B-Boy Stance,’’ ‘Ruffneck’ and ‘Warning’ set the marker. As their Music progressed so did their Anthems with the seminal tunes ‘Punks’, ‘Boom Blast’, ‘Fasten YourSeat-Belts’,’Painkiller” and more recently ‘Cracks.’to list a few.In addition to their status as Underground Heroes, they have gained commercial success with their Global Hit ‘Push Up’ and have had their Music synched in many TV Commercials and Films ,including the hugely successful Comedy ,Zoolander.
For the first time the Freestylers are coming to Leamington to deliver an eclectic mix via a LIVE DJ set at our first Heritage Breaks event in the town.......
About Heritage Nights
A friendship cemented by a shared love of electronic music, Will Letterese and Alex Hammond have both worked and been part of dancefloors since the mid-90's, both as clubbers and DJs. Both grew up listening to music from an early age, drawing on so many influences from early acid house trax, hip house, electro, french house, synth-pop, techno, US garage, breakbeat, tribal house, hip hop, jungle, progressive house, UKG, bashment, speed garage, rave and disco. Both are seriously avid musical trainspotters and take pride in a love and deep knowledge on all kinds of electronic dance music.
Keeping the spirit of this amazing music alive, Will and Alex present Heritage; featuring vintage dance music from 1982 to 2002. Bringing celebrated guest DJs who have influenced us and have shaped this world into the phenomenon that it is today.
This will be an historic and educational journey into the world of quality dance music, providing an insight into how new artists draw upon classic inspiration and influence from these genres. The actual clubbing experience will take you back to the golden US/UK era of the 1990's.....
