Freestylers – LIVE @ Future Sound Of Breaks – 28.3.2008

 

 

The original members of the Freestylers are Matt Cantor and Aston Harvey who started off their musical careers in the mid 1990’s. They released their first two albums ‘We Rock Hard’ and ‘Pressure Point’ on the legendary Breakbeat label Freskanova. The third and forth albums ‘Raw as F**k’ and ‘Adventures in Freestyle’ were released on ‘Against The Grain’ another Breaks power house based label. Their last album from 2013 ‘The Coming Storm’ was released through Black Hole Recordings.

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 Your Seat-Belts,’ ‘Painkiller’ and more recently ‘Cracks.’ In addition to their status as underground heroes, they have gained commercial success with their huge global hit ‘Push Up’ and have had their music featured in TV and film, including the hugely successful comedy film Zoolander.

Davey Hub – Freestylers vs The Prodigy DJ Mix

 

 

Davey Hub has put together something special here. This is his DJ tribute mix for The Prodigy vs The Freestylers. I’ll let Dave explain it a bit better:

“Here is the next installment of my DJ tribute mixes and this one is a heavyweight contest between 2 bass and beats specialists. In the blue corner there is no introduction needed as we have probably the best live electronic band in the universe The Prodigy. These guys have been on the scene for well over 20 years and are still at the forefront pushing their unique blend of heavy beats , synths and guitars combined with the vocals of Keith Flint and Maxim. In the red corner we have The Freestylers who , whilst maybe not as mainstream as The Prodigy , have also carved out a career in heavy breakbeats and bass lines. The Freestylers are a British electronic music group, consisting of producers Matt Cantor, Aston Harvey. They have released five studio albums and a number of mix compilations for, among others, Fabric and BBC Radio 1 Xtra.

So there you have it , 2 heavyweights slugging it out track by track in the mix.”
